      Upscaling Standard Defintion Sky + (not HD)

      I'm sure you will have answered this question before, but I couldn't find it on your forum, so apologies for asking you to go over old stuff.

      I have a Sky+ box (not HD), and I have just bought a AV Receiver (Denon 1910) capable of upscaling standard definition TV. Since my Sky+ box doesn't have a HDMI output, what is the best way of connecting the output from Sky+ box to the AV receiver?

      Thanks very much for your help

      A Scart to Component converter is probably your best option. With Svideo runner up.

      Perfect - thanks

      How about on the audio side? Or will the scart take care of that as well?

      I think your best there would be an optical connection, it would give a better result than using the stereo connectors. You will not get sound from this type of scart adapter.

      To be honest, you should get yourself an HD box to get the full benefit of the Denon. Seems a waste to spend about 400 to use on a Sky+ box.

      You're right it does seem a waste - but I can only afford one thing at a time. The AV receiver cost 400 plus 600 for the speakers.

      Maybe in 6 months I can spring for the Sky HD box. Sky HD is the only thing missing from my set-up now.

      Thanks again for the help!!
