    Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the 2 Sony SKY digi boxes, the VTX 750U AND THE VTX 760?
    Some guy on eBay sold me a 760 model for £179.50 and when it was delivered it was actually a 750 model.
    Their must be a difference because the price is nearly £100 more for the 760 model.

    The seller says there is no difference and i am being picky.

    I did do a bit of reading up and found that the 750 suffered from RF interference on the RF2 output and the picture quality wasnt all that good.

    Please help as i am sending this back to him for a full refund tomorow and want to make sure that im sure he has tried to rip me off.


    Regards Malcolm

    It's not what he told you it was, regardless of the differences. Get a full refund or report him to Ebay.

    Some versions did not have the digital audio output enabled so that's the first thing to check (if you want it). It only gives ordinary stereo (with Dolby Prologic when available).

    Digital audio optical output was fixed via updated software from Sky; both models have it. I have 750 model as my second digibox, and it definately outputs digital sound.

    It's a common misconception that you can get anything but PCM Stereo from any Sony Sky box. The digital optical out cannot and has never output Dolby Digital bitstream. It just can't do it and the word is, it's hardware, not firmware. Have a look on Ebay and see how many people are claiming that the 760 they are selling will give you DD 5.1. Must be a lot of disputes going on.

    Correct. As I already posted above: "It only gives ordinary stereo (with Dolby Prologic when available)."

    Same for me, I have a 760 and Skyplus+, definitely no 5.1 from the Sony.
