sorry cant agree with that, if you have a high end system and it looks very smart in black, would you really want to spoil the effect of it all with a silver or white box, bit of a sore thumb. i know some people dont give a dam about what the system looks like but how it performs, for me personally it has to both perform and look the part, after all it is in my living room and i have to look at it most days.Sick Boy said:

On Tuesday I got a new JVC LT26DSB HDTV LCD for my bedroom. The main TV downstairs is a 30" CRT TV. Which has a standard Sky box.
Now I want to take up Skys offer of getting Sky installed in another room for £50 for the box, free installation and £10 extra a month.
But once Sky HD comes out I will want a HD feed for my TV upstairs. So as its only going to be 4-5 months should I wait for Sky HD? Just pay the £50 for the box and pay out again in February?
Any idea how much the HD box would cost? I'm wondering if I tell Sky I'm planning on getting HD Sky when it comes out, would they do a deal on a free box in the interim?
Also can you have an non HD feed on one TV and a HD feed on another from the same satellite?

Nick_UK said:Well, somehow I just can't get excited about a HD box made by Amstrad. Just call me an old cynic
ijd said:Nick-uk you are nothing more than an av snob
the boxes are made to sky spec so it does not matter if it has an amstrad name on it bang&olufson, nakamichi bose or THOMPSON wtf! the workings will all be the same,
who for gods sake are pace???
but i do know what you mean, my old sky box was amstrad but i did ask if i could perhaps have a panasonic ..
