Connecting Smart box via aerial and tv ?

HI, i just noticed that the smart box only has an aerial in port, (not in and out.)

 

I have TV (with freeview), dvd recorder (with freeview built in), and now this smart now tv box.

 

How can i connect them all to one aerial, as with the tv and dvd recorder they have an in and out, so atm main areial goes to dvd, out dvd to tv to form a loop.

 

Bit confused but im sure there is a simple answer. Help please. thanks

You'd need two feeds, one going straight into the NOW TV Smart Box and the other daisy-chaining via the DVD Recorder to your TV. This can be achieved easily enough with an aerial splitter/Y-splitter and an extra coaxial cable. Something like this, but lots of other places will sell it as well.
