You can leave the box connected to get freeview but you can't use the sky+

I'm not sure about your first question, but for the second two:

*if not how do i re-connect the ariel into my own tele as i have freeview in it?
To get Freeview on your telly without your sky+ box you'll need a tv aerial lead (attached to a TV aerial), rather than a satellite lead.
*can i still use the sky+ dish to get a tv connection?
Yes, either by using your Sky+ box for the freeview channels or the other option is to buy a freesat box which will then use your existing dish to give you freesat channels (sameish as freeview). If you have an HD tv you could get a freesat HD box for £60-£70 then this will give you BBC and ITV1 HD.
