    I read that I need to use s-video to connect the sky+ to capture card.

    What do I do about sound? I have no amp and usually just scart my sky+ box to the screen.

    Any way that I can connect sound to the capture card? As I believe s-video doesnt carry sound.

    Any help appreciated

    thanks :)

    I'm no expert (at all) but I think you take audio phonos out from sky+ (as your tv won't have optical) and put them into your telly. This in turn may create lipsync probs (but hopefully not).

    What about trying to connect it to a sound card?

    I'm considering this route. I'd be most curious to know your opinion of the improvement.
