    apparantly the new free to air PACE digital terrestrial box has an option for S-Video output via its one and only SCART socket. Thought this might be of use to people wanting to connect a digibox to a projector.

    Just purchased the Pace digibox...the video output is indeed switchable between RGB, S-Video, and Composite :)

    Stalefish, how do you find the Pace? How's its speed on the menus and similar? I moved from a Sony (first generation, I think) to the Panasonic and the difference in display-speed was considerable. Much as I'd like an s-video output, I wouldn't want to go back to waiting for the box to perform.

    Just to add: I recently got a new Grundig digi box, these now come with a dedicated S-Video socket, the old models never did.

    Bert...
    I find the Pace to be very easy to use...it's not lightening fast menu-wise..but fast enough for it to not offend!
    I'd advise a short demo.

    With regard to the Pace DTV adaptor....
    Nokia are bringing out much the same box (normal size footprint aside)
    But this one also has an optical out I am told....interesting

    Stalefish, I think I'm right in saying that the Nokia would be the only digibox with both s-video and optical sound, so yes, interesting is the word. Thanks for the info.
