    Just had sky+ installed via the £99 + £1 offer...great...aoart from the cowboy installer...anyhow the picture quality on this box (v1) seems to be grainier (or should that be more grainy) than my previous grundig box. Is this something anyone else has come across and resolved? Any help appreciated.

    :clap:

    Could be to do with that the Sky+ boxes come with an RGB convertor built in which would hence the clearer sharper or grainier picture.

    You sure it is set to RGB?
    Sky boxes by default are set to composite.
    Go to services, 4, 1 and make sure one of the options says RGB.

    Box is set to RGB...I've checked the cabling and the finish is poor to say the least. I've tidyed it up a bit and the picture quality is much better...I have called sky to get an engineer to fix it properly
