    SKY HD BOX - What OUTPUTS are on it ?

    Quick question,

    Getting Sky HD, what are the outputs on the back of the box ??

    Apat from the HDMI, im guessing a Scart socket, 2x Aerial out (one with 12v), S-Video ??

    Does anyone know of any good HDMI signal senders which are less than £150 ??

    Cheers

    One further question...

    Does the Opitcal Output support the same output formats as the HDMI out ?

    Cheers

    its worth noting that several of the output ports are not enabled.
    rj45
    external sata
    usb

    New Sky HD boxes do not have component out! That might be important!

    Don't think sky supports Dolby Digital via HDMI - You have to use optical.[/COLOR]

    Here are the ports on the newer boxes (image is of a samsung, but only the early Thompson boxes had component out).....

    Cheers for this,

    So Dolby Digital has to go via the Opitcal ? if so, that makes it easier for me as i can just wire the HDMI to the TV and sound direct to the amp.

    I believe so.

    Obviously you get TV sound via HDMI which you can use if you didn't want to turn the Amp on. I have HDMI to TV, and optical to a Creative DDTS100 (a computery-sided dolby decoder with lots of inputs) and it works fine.
