Hi All,

I have MySky HDi connected via HDMI to my main HD TV - all good.

I want to connect a second TV via component but run it SD - so I can't use component out. I see from the manual that MySky HDi will output component via scart.

1. Will it output HD over HDMI and SD component over scart at the same time?
2. What are the pin assignments from the scart TV out connector for component?

The scart output will only send out a standard definition signal, so no worries about that.. In saying that, I'm almost sure that the component out will only send out an sd feed..  It's only the HDMI cable that makes it HD.. 
You can buy a scart to component lead, (or if you're real cheeky, see if sky will give you one..)
The two output's will run simultaneously.  It's just like connecting a vcr..

AFAIK if you have a valid connected HDMI HDCP handshake, the Component will output HD..
