Do any Sky digiboxes display the channel number like the analogue ones used to?
Never seen one , have to say I dont think they are required when the "now and next" banner is a button push away
Exactly the argument used to why we don't need DOGs on screen telling us what channel we are watching, more information for the viewer just by pressing the "i" button!
Except, of course, if the digibox is non subcription & fed straight into an amp simply for radio reception....
Ahhh ,I see.
Never never considered that some one would want a digibox and not want to plug it into a tv
Is there no didital radio available with an optical out ??
Having seen the SKY schedules I'm amazed that anyone WOULD connect a TV !
The issue isn't the output from the receiver but the input. DAB is broadcast at a significantly lower bitrate than DSAT. I have DAB in the car & at best it's OK. Also, DAB is regionalised. I couldn't receive London based DAB broadcasts such as LBC at home in North Essex whereas I can on a digibox.
