Standard V-Box with HDMI?

I have 2x V+ Boxes and 1x Standard Samsung V-Box in the bedroom.

 

I have just treated myself to a new telly for the bedroom, which comes with HDMI connections.

As the Samsung V-Box only has SCART outputs, what are the chances of me being able to swap this box for one with HDMI outputs please, so I can enjoy the best possible picture quality?

 

NB: I already pay a small fortune in charges for my package, so a very dim view will be taken for requests for more money being needed to solve my problem!

The page that allows you to do this via the web has dissapeared now, so you will need to phone. The box you will get will be the Cisco VHD.

There maybe a £40 (or £49?) HD activation charge if you want HD... This could be lower now but that's what it was when I signed up.

He already has 2 V+ - so HD should activated on his account. Anyway, I believe HD activation is redundant now as only HD boxes are available to order.

Thanks nodrogd, but have found the order link on My Virgin Media / "View or change package" link. It shows as an upgrade to VHD for £20.

 

Cheers
