    I can't find the answers anywhere. Maybe I did not look hard enough.

    Can someone tell me if the SKY+ digibox output RGB with SYNC on G??? When I switch the video output to RGB does it output RGsB???

    Thanks.

    So SKY+ does not output in RGsB then. In this case, what would be my best options if I still want to connect using the SKY+ RGB via scart to RGB-Sync-On-G? Is there a suitable converter that can do a good job?

    Thanks.

    RGB with sync on composite is the standard used in the vast majority of scart sockets. So if you are connecting Sky+ to an RGB compatable recorder/screen etc via scart then it will be compatable and no conversion required. If connecting to a plasma screen etc with no scart sockets then the chances are you will need to convert the RGBs to RGBHV or perhaps YUV component. This can be done with the boxes from www.js-technology.com which I can highly recommend as giving great PQ.
