Has anyone used the HDMI output on a Digistar 860uH satellite receiver?  Was the image quality much better than standard composite or component?

I understand this unit doesn't up-scale, but outputs 576(i or p?) over the HDMI.  Anyone had any experience with this?

yeah _ just received mine in the post today

go through the manual - pg 22

and set OSD

a/v settings and change out put video mode to 576 - takes about 4 changes as it scrolls through

Thanks for the feedback about the HDMI.  I have one of these, at the moment just using the composite output, which as composite goes, is fine.

Has anyone tried the component output (via SCART on the back of the box)??  I assume that its better than the composite output.
