    Hi there,

    I have just recently had Sky HD installed and would like some advice:

    The HDMI is currently going into the Pioneer 508XD. Is the correct way or is it better to connect to the Onkyo 876 and letting the Onkyo do the processing. Or can you only connect to the TV.

    cheers

    Graham

    SKYHD HDMI output is stereo only, for 5.1 you have to use optical so pointless connecting the SKY box to your Onkyo.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for that, I have connected the optical and assigned via the onkyo. I still can't believe how good the picture is on HD. Miles better than my denon dvd player.

    cheers
