Will Sky HD be able to send non-HD signal to my CRT too?

    Ok, I have an Infocus 7205 HD projector and have pre-booked Sky HD. It has suddenly occured to me that my daytime viewing will be on my CRT which is NOT HD ready or capable. Does anyone know if the new Sky HD box will be able to send a standard signal say via scart, to my CRT as well as a HD signal to my projector?
    If not, I will have to fork out for a new TV as well!

    I'm in the same position....
    Fingers crossed it'll be ok, but otherwise, it should only be a couple of menu presses to set the box to the correct output (might even set this up as a macro on my remote)

    The HD box has scart connections and you connect it to a CRT no problem

    Also it has a coax output. If it's like the US boxes, everything is outputed in analog SD on the coax.
