Can someone please let me know exactly what connections are available on a Sky HD box?

- Undoubtedly there are 2? SCARTs, but what is available on each? Composite Video? S-Video? RGB? Component? Audio?

- Any separate S-Video output(s)?

- Digital audio (optical or co-ax?)

- Analog audio output(s)?

Ought to be possible to get this info off the 'Net, but so far I've failed, so any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

What does each SCART provide. Is it like the old Sky box with RGB on the TV SCART and only Composite Video on the VCR SCART?

Is the S-Video 4 pin mini DIN socket?

No co-ax digital?

Component by 3 RCA phono sockets?

RGB on the TV scart and Composite on the VCR scart, same as digibox.
S-video is a 4pin mini Din.
Only optical connection not coaxial and yep 3 RCA for component.


Pictures and further info can be found on the SKY HD website.

Well I've looked many times and have never found any such technical info on Sky's site. Sadly it's not untypical, but why is there such a lack of technical information? How come people don't want to know what they're getting before parting with their cash? Amazes me.

Thanks for the help. All I need to do now is find one at a sensible price.
