    i don't have an lcd tv, i'm using skycable's digibox. Im just using a philips pixelplus 34". The picture quality is really superior than the analog signal. The sound seems to be better also.

    I have a Skycable Digibox in tandem with my Samsung LCD. The pic quality is indeed better that analog, specially with cartoons and animation. Mine is hooked up via S-Video cable for better signal output

    you pay 2000pesos for the digibox... then it comes with free 1 month(or longer, i had it for 1 and 1/2) skycable platinum pack, wherin you get several hbo channels, 3 discovery channels, and other premium channels.... if you won't continue on subscribing to the premium package... it's ok, you can still use the digibox with the regular cable subscription...

    i just called the thru 6310000, and they came the next day.
    yes, you have to have one box per t.v.
    the installer told me that eventually, they will no longer have analog signal running thru their cables... so their promo now, is in preparation for all digital service of skycable.
    They are all digital now in their high risk colorum areas, according to the installer.

    ur welcome gpo74.

    The quality is way better than standard cable. the box also has a optical out. you have to get a box for every TV

    Re: SkyCable Digibox?? and your LCD TV

    Does anyone know what the IR code is for the Skycable digital box? I'd like to use my Samsung LCD TV's remote to control the digital box as well. I tried calling Skycable but not only did they not know the IR code, they don't even know what brand it is. After asking me to hold twice they just told me, "Sir made in Korea". Don't you just love Philippine customer service? If anyone has the code please do let me know.

    They installed digibox today, hmm.. didn't paid any - since they encrypted our areas, just informed us that they will install the digibox for free.. Will wait for the Platinum service to go live in our area.. But yeah, it's way clearer than the analog.

    Guys, I just found out all Solar Entertainment Channels will be removed on SkyCable effective January 1, 2008.

    These channels are:
    1. Basketball TV
    2. Solar Sports
    3. JackTV
    4. Crime/Suspense.
    5. ETC
    6. 2nd Avenue

    This is for all SkyCable packages, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
    Let's make a complain para di ituloy.
