    Hi everyone. Firstly I just want to say a massive thanks to all who take time to write and reply to threads. This site has been a massive help in getting me to the stage where I'm almost ready to purchase!
    After reading a thread - http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=176067 I've decided (almost) to go for the Tosh but am curious as to whether I'll be upgrading in only a year due to Sky??
    A guy in my plasma department at work suggested that it would work due to one of the connections it's got but I'm unsure.
    Any help here would be sooo greatly received :D
    Thanks for you help in advance

    Hi,

    I don't recall the 26WL46B having DVI (HDCP) or HDMI, so I don't believe it classifies as HDTV compatible.

    Regards

    Sky announced that it's HDTV broadcasts will only be viewable over digital HDCP compliant interfaces i.e HDMI or DVI-HDCP. You will not be able to watch HDTV Sky broadcasts over component connections.
