      Question Can I connect the box to my HDTV via VGA and get a clearer picture?

      My TV has an open slot for VGA and I've looked at the back of my Sky+ box and I find a VGA slot there also. If I use a VGA cable will it allow for a better image?

      I think that is a serial port (for use with sky gnome), and not a vga port.

      I think if you look closely you will see that it is a RS 232 port, ie a serial port, not a VGA.
