    I have just recieved an email from sky offering me the oppurtunity to sign up for the new HD service.

    My tv is marked as being HD ready but all i can assume is that Sky HD will need to be connected by the DVI-D(HDCP) port on my TV.

    All the postings i've seen so far state that the new Sky HD box will need a HDMI compliant TV, is there anyway i can convert a the DVI-D(HDCP) port on my tv to allow me to connect to a Sky HD box.

    Is it just a simple case of a DVI-D(HDCP) to HDMI cable.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes - as long as the DVI port supports HDCP, it shouldn't (theoretically) require anything more than a physical adaptor to work with HDMI.

    If it is truely HD ready and doesn't have a HDMI port, the DVI port should be HDCP compliant - which should work.

    Do you not have component connections on your TV because you can also use that to connect to the Sky HD box.
