Connecting Sky HD box to Slingbox


Standard Member
Hi all,

Does anyone know how to connect a new Sky HD box to a Slingbox solo? My Sky box has been replaced and I don't think it has the same connections ports?

Thanks in advance!

I assume you connect from SCART on the Sky box and looking at the connectors at the back of typical Sky standard and Sky HD boxes these connections are the same

The Solo doesn't do HDMI, does it - only Component and S-Video?

In which case, you need the Samsung Sky+HD box, which still has an S-Video output. If you can't get a Samsung box, you're going to have to do what fernandex said - use the Scart to Composite (red, white, yellow) adapter, and suffer the rubbish composite picture quality :(
