Hi Trace,

You were very close with your definition of HDMI. It actually stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface. If you are bored enough to want more details, go to:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

Hi Trace,

Sky HD boxes connect to the TV via an HDMI cable. Standard boxes
connect via a scart cable. I’m guessing that the Sky Talker will only
work via scart and that is why it won’t work with HD.

However, you could always just connect a Sky HD box to the TV via a
scart lead instead, then the Sky Talker should still work. The only
problem would be that the picture would not be HD.

Hope that makes sense.

Regards.

Ian

Why isn't it suitable for sky plus hd and is there a work around for
this? will they be upgrading it for sky plus hd?
Sorry for all of the questions but I'm not very clever in this sort of
thing.

Hi. I mailed sky accessibel customer services last night for more
detail. This moves the story on a tiny bit as it gives some
explanation of the HDTV situation.

TEXT BEGINS

Thank you for your email.

I can confirm that as of the 26th October the Sky Talker box will be
available for sale.

Sky Talker is a device that will attach to the back of a Sky+ box or
STB and will give an audio description of the programme information
through the television

speakers. It is not recommended for use with Sky+ HD unless the
customer is not connecting through HDMI.

Kind Regards

Gotta love their usage of the phrase 'audio description' here in the
wrong context. Or at least, I think it's the wrong context. I hope
this does actually speak the EPG.

Has anyone ascertained how much this box is going to cost?

…Damon
