    I'm having Sky+ installed today.
    I currently have a Panasonic digibox with JS RGB to S-Video converter connected to the projector.

    Can I/will I need to use the converter with my Sky+ box?

    cant see any reason why not, as long as the sky+ box is set to rgb,
    mine is being fitted on sunday and i am going to be using a rgb to component converter,

    i have brought the portable tv from another room in , just incase the box is set to pal/ composite on startup, just so they can see the menu to select rgb.

    2nd thought the sky+ has a s-video out i think.

    Hi,

    Yes, the SKY+ box has S-Video out so you shouldn't need your converter but you will need an S-video cable.

    cheers

    Thanks guys,

    jmack-Thanks for the advice on using a portable tv. The engineer couldn't figure out why he couldn't get a picture to set up the box.

    Everything is up and running now.
