    I don't know much about satellite TV.
    I'm using analogue cable tv now, but I wat to upgrade picture and sound quality of MTV, MCM and other music TVs.
    I am thinking of getting satellite dish and a digital reciever.
    Will I get better quality?
    What kind of outs (connections) has a satellite reciever? Digital out (for audio and for the picture)?
    I want to record music on a HHD, so I'm looking for a best possible connection.

    Thanx.

    Pretty sure all SKY digiboxes have RGB (picture) outputs on scart, standard boxes have analog stereo audio, SKY+ has these plus optical digital out.

    Sorry, I forgot to say I live in Bulgaria, so we don't have SKY.
    Any with picture digital out?

    Never seen one, RGB is probably as good as it gets.
