    I'm shortly getting Sky Digital and I'd like to buy a really good SCART to SCART to hook it up to my plasma (I believe SCART is the best output Sky Digital has). But on the other hand I'll probably be getting a TiVo or some other HD recorder in the near future, and leading it through that. So I'm wondering what leads I'll need when I get that. I have no idea what input/output these HD recorders have.

    Quality is really important since the connection will be going through two cables to get to my screen. Will I be wasting my time buying a SCART to SCART now, or will that fit into the sytem nicely when I add the TiVo?

    Anyone have any advice?

    TiVo only has scart input & output, so a good quality scart lead will be what is required.
    What budget do you have for the 2 scarts?

    Why not get Sky Plus now which is Sky Digital with a built in HD recorder. It will save you another box with yet more connections.
