No it wont. I looked into this about a year ago. Only way is to add a digital reciever and aerial. I had one for a short time but it wasn't a lot of good. Either you get reception or you don't. ie you wont get a snowy picture when the signal is bad. You just don't get a picture at all.

Locky, Thanks for the response, I guess the TV function is something I will have to do without in the future. Out of interest where did you source the receiver and antena and how hard was it to fit. Cheers LR322 Pilot

2002-2005 Range Rovers with the BMW Navigation system (not Jaguar touch screen) can use BMW's Hybrid Digital TV tuner found in many E39 (5 series), E46 (3 series) and E53 (X5) models. Just search eBay and you will find them! It's a straight swap plug and play and a very easy swap!

I've had mine for 3 years and when it works its great but here in the South the digital signal has yet to be "cranked up!" so I guess the jury is still out but a couple of things in its favour are 1/ It still has a built in analogue tuner so you are no worse off and 2/ you can cover a chunk of the cost by selling your old analogue tuner!

Hope this helps,

Andy.

Hmm might be in the market for one of these myself. I used an aftermarket one recently but as you say the signal reception isn't great in the south at the moment and I could rarely get good reception on digital.
Where is the unit located on the car? rear left hand access panel?
