    getting sky hd soon and ordered an ixos xht601 scart, but then realised that i might not need it.

    Does the hdmi cable that comes with the sky hd box output standard definition stuff and if so what is the pic quality like?

    cheers guys

    Yes it outputs SD over HDMI, though my installer didnt seem to think so and he was swoping the one heading for the TV :rotfl:

    The picture quality imo is better when set to Auto and let your tv do the scalling and the fact it shows the correct aspect ratio is a plus.

    But then it outputs HD channels in 1080i only.
