I am looking at getting a HDi as Sky at present is doing a $50 install but as my Sony TV won't switch to HDMI  directly with a Harmony remote  so I want to be able to feed Svideo and HDMI out of the Mysky box at the same time and switch to HDMI with a macro but for the plebs in the house they just press "Watch Sky"  as they do now and use the Svideo feed.   As there is no Mysky tech info on the Sky website about this  does anyone know if this can be done??

I've got HDMI and component connected at same time to same TV.

If Svideo works same way just need to disable HDCP warnings in set up, otherwise will get hdcp warning message on top of Svideo picture, the message is got rid of by pushing go back on sky remote, but if warnings disabled message won't appear just normal picture.
