    Sky outputs in either

    RF (the worst case)
    Composite (slightly better)
    RGB (the best and the connection you should be using)

    RGB is via the scart lead & you should enable RGB in the sky menu's.

    you wont get xga svga or any other format out of your sky box.

    You can improve your sky signal by buying the following.

    JS scart to component converter (£140)
    Iscan Ultra (£530)
    leads (£80 upwards)

    I have this setup and sky looks fantastic.
    All the moaning and groaning that goes on within these forums about sky image is dissapointing.

    As I have never seen sky look so impressive on any CRT set
    as it does on my setup.

    Sky is totally crisp. you can see every single little blemish on the actors faces. You can see the makeup smudge lines on womans faces. You can see those fine bearded hairs on ol granny's chins.
    The flesh tones are spot on........
