    Mornin' all,
    sorry if this has been covered before but I'm new to all this Sky malarkey; basically if I subscribe to Sky what make will the supplied box be? Will I be able to connect it to a surround sound amp and a projector?
    Thanks in advance,

    stu

    do any of the boxes have stereo outs and s-video as well as scarts? I've been looking at various suppliers and all the threads but info seems to be a bit thin on the ground!

    the grundig boxes have s- video and analogue sound .
    I think all the sky+ boxes have s-video and digital and analogue sound.
    other than that i'm guessing..

    Grundig boxes are no longer supplied. If you want s-video and dolby sound your only option is to go for Sky+, but remember that 5.1 is only broadcast on Skymovies 1,2 and 3. Everything else will be in prologic.

    thanks for that chaps, Bluevanman I don't want the film channels (at the moment!) so prologic will be good enough - is there a choice of makes for the digiboxes?

    cheers, stu

    Sorry,no. The make you get is all dependant on what the guy has got on his van, and on stock rotation.Currently only the Sky+ has the ability to deliver anything other than stereo and scart connections.

    As vanman says you don't really get a choice with the boxes, unless you go to an independant installer and order it that way.

    Also if you can, steer well clear of the Amstrad V2 Sky+ box, it sucks big time!
