HD Install without HD Telly?


Active Member
I'm due to get Sky HD installed on Monday as we were expecting to get our HD Telly on Thursday, but the shop now won't have it in stock until next week. Do you need a HD TV for installing SkyHD?


No. When I had mine installed I had a CRT.

Just tell the installer whats happening and have him show you how to set the menus up properly on the sky HD box when your new TV arrives, and take notes.

Dont worry though , its simplicity itself.


To clarify your situation, you will just have to connect the HD box via scart ,as you probably already do with your existing telly.
Then just switch over to HDMI when you get your new telly.
You'll have wasted about £2.50 worth of HD subscription in that week though.:D
