Not strictly a computing query but I just got a new LCD TV and it has an RS232 connection and so does my sky box. Can anyone tell me anything about it.

It's generally used by factories and engineers for setting and controlling the user interface modules (menus) you see and use on the tv.

Of no use to the average home user (and don't even think about trying to connect your pc to it, like i did once :-( )

Old fashioned serial interface. Can be used to update firmware in some instances. Not sure why a TV would need firmware update.
