    Hi,

    Just gone through the pace web site and seen there a satelite receiver that has a component output AND a DV-I connection. It is calledd the DS840HD. Will this pick up sky and were can you buy it from?
    Thank you,
    Phill

    The DS840HD is a high definition STB geared up for viewing EURO1080's HD1 channel although any mpegII HD Dsat channel would be accessible, encryption allowing.
    So it will not access any of SKY's subscription services and I'm not even sure how it handles standard definition mpegII broadcasts which are used by the FTA channels broadcasting to the UK.
