Sky Plus with Component out

Hi,

I currently have sky digital and am hoping to upgrade to sky plus soon. Does anyone know if any of the sky plus boxes have component out? Also any advise on particlar boxes that are better than the rest, i assume they all have optical outs?

Cheers

none that i know of have component out im afraid. At the moment the best seems to be the pace V2 but if you have the choice, get the earlier V1 since it can later be modified if you get deeper into the hobby

None have Componenet out but they do have optical out - certainly my V2 does.

I've got Sky+ going through the JS RGB to Component convertor to get Sky to plasma and quality is superb.

the mod you can do is for sdi (serial digital interface) but that is something you wouldnt do until you have a projectir/plasma and video processor. The only reason I mention this is that when I got sky+ I went for the newest V2 thinking it was the best but have recent decided to go sdi and have had a real nightmare trying to get a V1 box (the V2 cannot be modified). So if you see a pace 3000 in the back of the installers van, grab it!

it i just an alternative interface. It is a pure digital interface which can give a significantly better picture than the standard analogue (and even some digital) interfaces.

all the best

what it does is basically tap the picture from the box as early as possible. In doing so it avoids alot of the messiness that the box will add and get the picture out in as close to its native form as is currently possible. You then connect to your sdi capable processor and have so far the best available picture on a sky+ box.

just to add that if you dont want to or cannot modify your box then you can still use a video processor to improve your picture, just make sure you get one that supports RGBS from the Sky box and you are away..
