    I've heard from someone who works in Sky that the only way to get Sky's HD service is through a Sky+ box. Is this correct??
    Apparently according to him that's the only flaw in the HD service :confused:

    If they don't stop telling their employees that they are gonna get stitched up by trading standards.

    Sky HD will require a completely new, HD compatible, Sky HD box, which will function in a similar way to a Sky+ box, presumably have a bigger HDD and a DVI/HDMI output, component outputs aswell as SD outputs. It will not work on anything else, including a Sky+ or Sky+ 160 box (have heard that someone one here was sold the 160 box as it is "HD compatible" :mad: )

    There are pictures of the proposed new box on here (yes it is black)
