    Only Sky + will give you Dolby Digital 5.1.
    I believe there is a Sony box that has a stereo digital out (and therefore Nicam), but I doubt if it will be any better than your existing analog stereo.

    Nope.
    The standard digital service is not going to be affected, it will be around for years to come.
    Of course if you get SKY+ HD it's highly likely that you can ditch an existing SKY+ since the new STB will be able to receive and record both HD and SD content.
