    Please help! I have a pioneer 503MXE and an I scan ultra (bought from Joe) and have jumped in with both feet and ordered sky hd without thinking to much or at all.
    What I would like to know is would buying a iscan hd to replace the ultra mean I could watch sky hd on my plasma through component. Is this the best option for me or am I in the sh*t and do I need a new tv. thanks for any help. Mark

    Using component to the video processor (and DVI from processor to plasma) you are fine. You won't be able to use HDMI out of the Sky box as the plasma is not HDCP compliant. If you do go back to Joe I'm sure he will try to steer you toward Lumagen rather than iScan as it has better HDTV processing.
