    Recently rigged up my own dish and pace digibox etc. but try as I may I can't get a stereo signal out of it. According to folks on this forum the RF will not output stereo, which I don’t understand, so I've tried the scart output but neither my vcr nor the tv are receiving stereo only mono. I have checked the audio menu on the digibox, which is set to stereo. Any ideas anyone?

    Thanks

    A digibox does not have a Nicam encoder so there can onyl be mono on the RF output. Your VCR and TV will only indicate a nicam stereo source so even though the digibox is outputting stereo on it's scart output or phono outputs it will not be flagged as such.
