    wuf810 - should be fine, just get a hdmi-dvi converter dongle (like the dvi-vga ones you get with modern graphics cards) only problem you might have is if SkyHD requires hdcp and your dvi port doesn't support it.

    Screenplay 7205 with 92" fixed screen. Anybody who thinks quantity and quality are mutually exclusive, should see this.

    Me too - and don't be - worst case is all you need to do is swap the HDMI and DVI connections over isn't it? Also can't wait! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Hope all you guys now the SKY standards and what the Audio output will be I dont and untill somebody form SKY HD tells me You may have a beautifull picture but with no Audio. LET THEM TELL US what they are providing before you order it. BE carfull here HD is not just the Signal but also a Visual and audio change unless sky tell us different.
    Actually SKy HD have not released a connection standard for there unit. May I also say that HD is a resolution of screen and not a Conector Type HD ready can mean that a Screen is 720p 1080I and 1080P, none of these screens must have a HDMI connector. HDMI will carry audio as well as video so unless somebody from sky tells you that in your home entertainmet center you have optional audio outputs as well. Then you will also need a HDMI to Audio Splitter and converter, Audio channels being Digtal. Nobody in SKY has yet commented on if there Sky HD boxes are also HDCP complient. This would also mean that your current PLasma or LCD screen would not cater fro the encrytion of HDCP. SKY needs to make there standard clear before anyone should buy into the new HD system.

    Most of it, the parts that I could actually read anyway.

    Sky HAVE already said they will enforce HDCP, when decided by the content owner. Only about 14 months ago though, and it's been discussed at length since, so I can see how you might have missed that.

    It's also been well publicised that the box has analog and optical audio out, quite separately from the HDMI (and indeed component) connections

    HD Ready DOES mean that the TV will support HDMI (or DVI) with HDCP.

    What else did you say that's not wrong?

    HD Ready actually only means that the Display can dislay 720p 1080I or 1080p and not the connection this is a
    definition of a Resolution standard, HDMI is a cabeling standard being adopted by Europe. HDCP is a encryption standard being introduced to ensure that equipment ie DVD to HDTV passes a encrypted code to ensure that the played DVD is not being copied!

    actually for a set to carry the "HD ready" logo the folowing must apply

    1. Display, display engine

    a. The minimum native resolution of the display (e.g. LCD, PDP) or display engine (e.g. DLP) is 720 physical lines in wide aspect ratio.

    2. Video Interfaces

    a. The display device accepts HD input via:
    i. Analog YPbPr “HD ready” displays support analog YPbPr as a HD input format to allow full compatibility with today's HD video sources in the market. Support of the YPbPr signal should be through common industry standard connectors directly on the HD ready display or through an adaptor easily accessible to the consumer; and:

    b. DVI or HDMI HD capable inputs accept the following HD video formats:
    i. 1280x720 @ 50 and 60Hz progressive (“720p”)
    ii. 1920x1080 @ 50 and 60Hz interlaced (“1080i”)

    c. The DVI or HDMI input supports copy protection (HDCP)

    The following technical references apply:

    DVI: DDWG, “DVI Visual Interface”, rev 1.0, Apr 2, 1999 as further qualified in EIA861B, “A DTV Profile for Uncompressed High Speed Digital Interfaces” May 2002, furthermore allowing both DVI-D and DVI-I connectors, requiring compliance to both 50 and 60Hz profiles, and requiring support for both 720p and 1080i video formats.

    HDMI: HDMI Licensing, LLC, “High-Definition Multimedia Interface”, rev.1.1, May 20, 2004

    HDCP: Intel, “High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection System”, rev 1.1, June 9, 2003

    (NB: on DVI HDCP rev 1.0 will apply)

    YPbPr: EIA770.3-A, March 2000 <check pending on version of this specification>, with the notice that the connectors required may be available only through an adaptor.


    with regard to the audio I would assume that the optical output would allow the audio to be sent to an av reciever as it is at the moment with my sky+ box.

    We've already taken this to PM calmly, but nothing I said above contradicts this. Not sure what you were trying to point out? HDMI isn't just Europe either.

    And it doesn't sound like you know that HDMI & DVI video signals are identical? HDMI just adds audio & provides a smaller connector.
