Sky HD Questions.

Can anyone answer a few questions please,
Can you select 720p or does it only output 1080?
Does it upscale the non hd channels to 720p or 1080 if so do they look any better than a standard sky box?
Thanks to anyone that can answer cheers.

Can set the box to auto, 720p or 1080i. All HD is in 1080i at present. Yes it will upscale standard programmes but I have no idea if the PQ is any better as i use an external scaler. I have read that the component out is poor quality and the RGB better. Having said all that I have only watched about 2 HD programmes in the month I have had it !!! Just nothing that really interest me other than the recording facility which is included in the HD subscription cost

Why would you want to use RGB it wouldnt be HD then?
