There's no way a YouView box can work with a satellite dish. It needs to be connected to a traditional TV aerial. Is there any way to run an aerial extension lead from the existing aerial to where you want the box?
Even if you upgrade to Infinity, you would only get the extra channels that are sent via BT TV. You would not get all the normal channels that are broadcast on Freeview (BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and so on).
It sounds like you already have an aerial, you just need it wiring through to where the YouView box is. This could be done just a long bit of coaxial cable with the right connectors on each end, or else call in a TV aerial installer for a more professional job.
If the wire just ends in a plug, of the sort that normally plugs into the back of a TV, then just pop down your local TV shop and get an aerial extension lead with a socket on one end and a plug on the other. Or a lead with a plug on each end, plus a little coupler to join two plugs together.
If it's just a bare wire poking out of the wall, then stick a plug on it. Then do the above.
There will be a small loss of signal in extending the cable. Without trying it, it's impossible to say if that will be a problem. But aerial leads are so cheap, it's worth trying.
