Andy,andy bassett said:has anyone got any news on this new SKY HD box thaat there brining out, ie a date and cost, have got as much info from the web about it just not sure if any peeps might have any more info than i have?
i know you need a 26" or larger LCD or PLASMA only to use it.
its a HDMI connection to the tv vid HDMI-HDMI or HDMI -DVI.
the box has got all the recoding facilities that SKY+ has got now.
but anyone gat any ideas on prices and release dates,
It's the resolution of the screen that matters whatever size it is mate. Must be capable of displaying at least a 1280 * 720 image to be truly "HD Ready". Owt else will only be displaying a downscaled image. Watch out for stuff that is "HD compatible" that is a totally different kettle of fish and usually only means it has the relevant connections.
Have a look over on AVforums.com for ongoing debates about SKY-HD. As Jas states there is still nothing concrete but all rumours seem to point to a launch in around 6 weeks time at a cost of £300 plus an extra tenner on the subs. Get down to Comet and pre-register for a box as they are likely to be sparse at launch.
