Taken from another Forum Ok Ive just got a press article from Sky regarding their HDTV boxes and they've now backtracked on their original statement! Originally (as mentioned MANY times in MANY posts) only TV's that had a HDMI/HDCP connection would be supported by Sky when they launched the service in the new year. However with over 200,000 plasmas / LCD TV's sold that are not compliant to the above "standard" - Sky has opted to include a analogue "component" connection (which most plasmas already have!) The picture quality is of lesser quality than a HDMI connection- but it basically means you can view HDTV on a non-HDTV screen. However- some words of caution: - Apparently only the FIRST batch of HDTV Sky Boxes will include the Component connection. After that they will exclude it from all future models meaning ideally, if you're in the market for a TV, you should really look for a plasma that includes a HDMI/HDCP connection. For those of you who dont want to splash out on another screen or connection upgrade, get your HDTV Sky box as quick as you can! - Although Sky will ensure their own channels can be received using the analogue component connection, there's no guarantee any independent channels will support the format meaning if you're using the component connection, you may not get all the programming you could be entitled to if you had the HDMI connection. If its true then its pretty good news for people who are looking for a cheap LCD TV without HDMI/HDCP connections!
