HD TV + Sky HD Box


Standard Member
Hey, sorry if this is posted in the wrong section or if this has been asked a million times before but here goes...

Recently purchased a HDTV and have a Sky+ HD box (but don't have the HD package, just the movies, sky sports etc..)

Am I right in saying that I can still use a HDMI lead as the feed from the Sky+ HD Box to the TV ?

Currently using a Scart lead from the Sky+ HD Box to the TV Scart and the picture isnt the best...

Also would the HDMI lead pick up the sound too or would I need them audio cables too? - Overall would I get a better picture from the HDMI rather than a scart?

Hiya, I have exactly the same setup as you, HDTV, Sky+HD Box and like you I do not subscribe to the HD Channels but do watch those that come free. My TV is connected to the Sky Box with an HDMI cable and everything works like a dream. I would suggest that you buy a decent quality HDMI cable though, although I really don't think that you need pay the earth for one. Hope this helps.

Hey thanks yeh just box is now connected to the TV via HDMI, the Sky GUI like the TV guide etc seems a lot sharper and crisper, not sure about the actual channels, I dont know it might just be my imagination lol but yeah its connected fine through HDMI, thanks again.
