    Is there much difference in the picture quality delivered between different makes/models of digiboxes provided by Sky ? Can a better picture be obtained by upgrading to a better quality box or is it all down to the Sky signal quality ?

    Any help much appreciated.

    Wouldnt say it'll make much difference, Ive had several diff digi boxes and wouldnt say there was any difference. Changing your scart lead to a decent one will help. If your picture/signal is naff then refit the f connector that plugs into the digi box. I redone my f connectors at the dish and the box and what a difference in quality. The sky guys seem to be very sloppy when fitting f connectors in my opinion, a blind man could've done a better job. Ive redone all the f's on all my mates sky and they've all noticed a difference. You can buy f connectors from B&Q which also have instructions on how to fit, its childs play. Hope this helps. :smashin:

    They are the connectors at each end of the coaxial cable that runs from your LNB (at the dish end outside) into the input of the Digibox (indoors) .

    Can you post me a URL to buy these connectors. I cannot find them on the B & Q website. I presume these are the black wire connectors that go into Input Dish 1 and Input Dish 2 at the back of the Sky + boxes.

    I have just purchased a JVC HV 32D40 and hopefully this will improve my Sky + picture.

    Thanks
    Martin

    I HAVE FOUND THEM !!!!

    Thats correct, they're the connectors on input one and two, try the two at the LNB too.
