    Are there any SKY digital boxed out there which have co-ax or optical digital output, apart from the Sky+ box.

    I know that the old Sony one used to, but is that the only one, and can it output Dolby Digital 5.1?

    Only SKY+ has an optical connection and supports DD5.1, no digibox has a coaxial connection.
    The SONY digibox has the optical connection but can not access the DD 5.1 soundtracks used on some channels.
