Sky+ for use with Sky


Active Member
I want to by a sky+ box from ebay or something because I'm working on the assumption that a sky+ has optical audio out as opposed to my normally sky which just has phono L,R out, am i right in thinking this?

Will they sky+ box work even though i will only be using it for standard sky service?

Thanks in advance

Without the sky+ subscription (and extra cabling to the lnb) the box works entirely as a normal sky box. The optical out works all the time but only produces standard prologic output. Only a few of the movie channels carry a 5.1 stream.

Correction, it doesn't have "Autoview" or any means of automatically recording a programme.
