    Am thinking of going for the £49 offer
    Sky+HD - How To Get HD With Sky+HD and How High Definition Works

    But we have a Slingbox classic & an AV sender connected currently to our SKY+.
    These are both connected by SCART.

    What options do I have with the new SKY HD box ? Does it have SCART ? I see the Thomson one does but not sure if this is what is currently being rolled out by SKY as I thought they had done away with component now.
    Sky+ HD Information and Advice

    Thanks

    Edit: I see there are now Amstrad & Pace...

    All the SkyHD boxes have scart. I don't think theres any plan to drop this, the component was dropped due to copyright protection of HD. Scart doesn't carry the HD video (only a downscaled SD version) so isn't seen as a problem.

    I have a PACE box and a Slingbox classic - as well as the two scart sockets, my PACE also has s-video output so I use that connection to my Slingbox, coupled with the phono outputs from sky straight to Slingbox.

    Works fine and still leaves me with two Scart outputs
