Does Anyone Know - Is there still a Scart Video Out on the HD Box for backing up?

    Just had another thought (third in a week :eek: ).


    One of the main functions of my Sky+ Box is to backup content onto my Pioneer HDD Dvd Recorder via the RGB Scart out on the Sky+ 160 box.

    I am planning on getting Sky HD, which will be connected up to my tv via HDMI - Anyone any idea, based on the back of the box and information that is known, whether there will still be either a component Video out or an RGB Scart Video out which can be used to back up content in SD at the same time as an HDMI port is displaying content.

    I hope so, otherwise Sky HD will be of no use to me, as archiving content (mainly local Irish League footy) is absolutely essential!!

    Yes
    RGB/composite SCART out
    composite SCART in/out
    component out
    s-video out (always on which I reckon means the SCARTs are always on too but at least it's a fallback)
