Hi all, first post here :)

I was just wondering if it is worth me getting MySky HD.

My current setup...

Epson EMP-TW200 Projector at 92", 720p capable
My Sky (connected via S-Video)
DVD (connected via component)
Denon AVR-1905

Would I notice a better picture with my current projector, as the HD is in 1080i and my projector is only 720p?

I would run component from the My Sky HD and the DVD through and AV Reciever then throught the component cable the DVD player is currently using to the projector, would this work ok? Any advice/thoughts?

Thankyou for the help.
Steve

Hi GMHLJ, you are best advised to wait till My Sky HDi is released to see if Sky are going to enable the ICT (Image Constraint Token).

If the ICT flag is enabled in the Sky content then the analogue outputs are downscaled to 960 x 540 resolution. This is for copy protection purposes.

Sky have stessed that subscribers will need an HDMI connection to view high definition material on My Sky HDi. Similar pay-tv operators overseas, however, have not enabled the ICT flag on content and are allowing a grace period so there is still a feeling that Sky may do the same here.

Your projector resolution of 720 should be sufficient to fully appreciate the HD content if it is available via component.
