      Re: sky+ to my pc monitor

      I connected my Sky HD box to the PC monitor via HDMI and it was fine, however using another method, I have no idea.

      Hopefully, someone can give you some information.

      AH! so this might be the time to upg to HD, so as long as my monitor was HDCP and had a HDMI port it should work then? is your picture as good as you would get on a lcd tv?
      Thx for the reply by the way
