    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Provided your freeview box has a scart socket. You need to buy a scart to three phono, or a scart adapter. Look HERE for examples of what I mean.

    Then you hook up the left, and right sound channels from the scart to your tv card, and the composite video signal. Then on your tv card menu, choose composite as your prefered signal.

    You should now be able to see all your freeview channels.
