    Hi,

    Quick query.... can a Sky+ box output S Video via its SCART socket or is it only via an S video socket?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    One scart is composite or RGB - the other is composite only.
    S-Video outputs only from S-Video connection.

    Not true :rolleyes:
    Some manufacturers (mainly jap) also output S-Video thru the scart connector.
    Forgot which pins, but the manual will say.
    I suppose they just do that for cheapo purposes. Somehow of course they do not live up with the scart definitions.

    It is true in regards to SKY+ which is after all what Andy wanted to know:)

    The use of a scart connection to carry s-video is certainly possible but it's down to the manufacturer to design it as such and that requirment is not on any SKY hardware spec.
