Do any Sky Digital boxes have digital outs?. Sky+ Is out of the question for now.
Unfortunately I think not although I am not an expert on this but I have spent plenty of time looking at the sky/pace website in the past. I am not sure if you can get a third party stb other than the ones perscribed by Sky - have asked a similar question elsewhere so if I find anythign out I'll let you know.
SONY digiboxes do but they haven't been made for at least 3 years (?) and the optical did not support DD5.1 audio.
SKY+ can be run with a single LNB cable and used as a normal digibox (no recording features) so no further payment if you want the optical output for feeding an offboard dac/amp.
Hrmmmmm, Do any freeview boxes have digital outs?.
Yes, the Netgem I-Player has a digital out
Awesome, thank's for your help everybody.
