Does the sky box not have an HDMI too?

Else ring Sky for an updated box that should be free too
(they own the box anyway, and should bend over backward to keep a customer as old/committed as you must be to have such an old version of their box.)

Use HDMI cable, not scart.

It probably has a green socket, which doubles as green/yellow and is selected from the menu. But as others have said use HDMI if you have one as the picture will look awful on the composite video ( yellow connection)

There's new decoder boxes that have hdmi.  Of course they'll try the upsell to mysky - if you can get it for free then that's a good option, but my brother in law has a newer box now and it has the HDMI rather than composite/scart connection.
