I know this subject has been done to death but despite searching I don't seem to be able to find a definite answer (as the service is not yet available I suppose there may be no definite answer?). From the Sky HD website (http://hd.sky.com) they seem to imply that the first Sky HD boxes will support an analogue HD signal: From hornydragon's very helpful comments on this thread http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=229047&page=5&pp=15 he implys that in fact when Sky decide to turn HDCP on, the component output will cease to work. Is this correct? Surely they would be mentioning this on the Sky website if this was the case? If this is true how long do people think it will be before they turn on the encryption? As I know already the PWD7 supports 720p and 1080i signals at both 50Hz and 60Hz over analogue and therefore initially at least the screen will be able to display the HD content broadcast over Sky's upcoming HD service. It is just over digital where the screen has problems with the 50Hz signal. Or is it 50Hz along with the HDCP signal where the problem arises and standard 50Hz will actually work? From another page on the Sky HD website they seem to say that the 1080i signal will be at 25Hz (1080i/25), is this the same as 50Hz as far as the Panny screens goes (i.e. it will not work)? I'm hoping that if you get one of the first Sky HD boxes that it will work fine with component video connectors for as long as the HD box works as then it will work fine with both my plasma and my projector. Will Sky really disable the component video feature on their boxes? Or will they just stop selling the boxes and remove the functionality this way?
