Great news & a quck question

After months of having a failing HD box that would faiol on the majority of recordings Ive finally got sky to sort it out.

For months they wouldnt do anything about it unless I paid for an engineer to confirm what I already know but last week I got a cracking result.

I phoned up for multiroom as I want this anyway and thought Ill use the old box in the bedroom and the new box downstairs for all the recording but when I called the said there was a problem as with the 1TB box it was showing on the "system" as costing £349! I got put through to a manager and after a bit of polite complaining they said They will get the engineer out to "service" the current box as the HDD is really noisy, free installation of multiroom and I get the 1TB box for £49. She said there was an "offer" on my account. I signed up there and then what a result!

The question I have is although I will be using the old HD box in the bedroom with no HD sub (HD sub for lounge only) can I still connect using a HDMI cable???

The reason for asking is that I have all the cabling running in the walls and was going to prepare everything before the engineers arrival. If this wont work Ill have to use a SCART to Phono/S-Video Adaptor so I can keep the holes in the walls to a minimum.

Thanks for any help!

Good result, and yes you can: you don't need an HD subscription to be able to connect with an HDMI cable. Plus, you'll still get HD on the FTA/FTV channels like BBC1, and ITV.

HDMI is more than capable of delivering an SD picture - as hopefully you noticed when watching SD channels on your Sky HD box whilst it was downstairs???

What difference does the subscription make to the cable? :confused:
And why did you open a new thread about this when there is already one with scores of examples of the same thing?

I asked because I didnt know, I thought that was what forums were for?

Because I dont spend my life on forums, Ive got real mates! Therefore Im not up to date with all of these examples.

@Johnbyte: Thanks you for the quick and simple answer!!!
