    hi all, need a wee bit of help here. i live outside the uk (spain) i hae 2 boxes sky +. i now want to fit a third one, (hd).
    the other 2 boxes where easy to instal, took them out fo their packaging plugged them in and away we go. now i have a few worries that have stopped me buying a sky hd box, can anyone answer these questions please.
    keep in mind that my boxes are not bought through sky itself.
    will the hd box work in spain?
    do i realy need the telephone line conected? (the others are not)?
    in order to get hd do i need a special cable, ie i have a 120cm screen with projector that is hd ready, do i just plug in the scart or is it a special cable.?
    im not realy bothered about the recording side of life i just want the full benifit of my big screen. so if anyone can help it would be much appreciated..

    I believe that the Sky HD box will work anywhere a Sky/Sky+ box works.

    I had to connect the Sky HD box to the phone line for the installation process - though some believe you can do it without. One bloke who didn't have a landline took the box and card round to a friends house and paired the card up before taking the box and card back.

    Lead - it should come with a HDMI lead which will conenct to your projector if its HD Ready. It might not be long enough depending on location of box/screen though. You can use component cables (not supplied).
