    Trying to connect to SKY HD Box....

    I have done several searches for the Sony KDLV40XBR1 and have not found any positive references to the supported Hz... just mentions of being HD ready, 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i.... Even the manual doesn't really say, except in the PC Input section it references only having the ability to to 60hz vertical refresh rate for the VGA PC Input. It does say "television system" is "American TV standard" -- so I guess that implies 60 for everything....

    QUESTION 1: Am I right in thinking that the Sony KDLV40XBR1 is only capable of 480i/60, 480p/60, 720p/60, 1080i/60?

    If that's the case, I'm not aware of any way to make the SKY HD box do 60hz, so its not looking good unless there is some way to convert.

    QUESTION 2: Does anyone know if a 50-60 conversion box for HD? Is that even a good idea?

    Help... I have a really nice Sony 40" going to waste!!!
