    Default Dvi / hdmi

    hoping someone can help. Just had Sky+HD installed, as far as I was aware my TV wasn't HD however the Sky engineer commented that my TV has a DVI input and you can buy a DVI/HDMI convertor. Does this mean my TV can display HD pictures but just is from before HDMI or something?

    Confused.

    as no1golger has said, DVI is picture only and t ouse the sound for it you would need a line lead going from the Sky box to the Stereo in on the back of the TV but as ask about the converter all it will do is allow you to use the sky box on your tv but i wouldnt expect any hd quality from it as the purpose of adaptors like this are really to let you use modern DVD/Blu ray,skyboxes on slighter older televisions - ie to save you having to go out and buy a tv.
