Analog cable, or "regular" cable versus Digital cable, the difference can be seen when you put two televisions side by side with one using analog cable and one using digital cable. Through this, you will see that digital cable television picture quality is much better in comparison to the analog cable. To put it simply, digital cable provides a better picture.

No, a S/PDIF is, by definition, a Sony / Phillips Digital Interconnect Format connector, and is always a digital signal. It is usually connected by an RCA cable, and can be carried by cable specified for analog use, but digital cable is better.

In analog ckt there is more distortion but in digital there is no distortion. Analog is a continues value digital is a discrite value(0 or 1). To measure analog is very difficult but in digital it is very easy. compare to analog the digital system is very compart for us. H.L.Kiran

As compared to what? Are you talking analog cable or digital cable? Are you comparing it to an analog signal over the air or a satellite receiver?

digital services with analog services we use binary digits 0 and 1 for digital serviceswe use electrical signal for analog service

A DVR must be hooked to a cable television service to work. If your basic cable is digital, it will work. If it's analog, it won't. Itworks by recording only the digital signal from your cable.

Only if you have a digital output on your cable box. If not, it'll end up being a digital signal, converted to analog and then reconverted by your TV back to digital. Besides, the digital changeover date is only for local television stations when they turn off their analog transmitters. This means that if you currently have cable or satellite with analog outp[uts, that aspect of it shouldn't change.

We can convert digital signal to analog by using DAC i.e Digital to Analog Converter and analog signal to digital signal by using ADC i.e Analog to Digital Converter.

An DAC convert digital signal to analog signal i.e Digital to Analog Converter. An ADC convert analog signal to digital signal i.e Analog to Digital Converter.

Speakers are analog devices. There is no cable and connector that will connect a digital audio jack to a speaker without a digital to analog conversion and an amplifier. If the audio output is digital, you will need a compatible amplifier that has the same digital input. Then you will need to link the amplifier to the speaker with exterior grade cable.

It's not as simple as making a cable that fits. Digital audio cables and digital signals, both coaxial and optical, require a digital input. You need to convert the digital signal to analog to work with older receivers. These are available (Google Digital to Analog Converter or DA Converter). Just about every device that has a digital output will also have an analog stereo output, which will work with your old gear.

1.having low noise as compare to analog. 2.using TDMA Iinstead of FDMA techniques used in analog. 3.in digital signals regenrative repeaters are used at every regeneration point of the signals so low loss of signals are there as compare to analog signals

No, you can still use an analog TV, but you will need a converter box to receive digital cable.

User Avatar

Yes, but only with a digital tv set-top converter box.

No. Your SD digital cable box will output Standard definition to your analog tv. If you do not have a cable box but have digital cable direct into your tv then you need a digital tuner. This does not need to be HD for Standard definition. If you do have a HD digital cable box then Yes you need a HD tv to view the HD channels.

It depends.... 1. Buy an digital tv (Sdtv or Hdtv) plus an antenna. 2. Analog tv (if you have an older tv), buy a digital to analog converter box plus an antenna. 3. Analog tv and antenna connected to digital DVD or digital VCR.

Depends if your cable company is sending anything in analog to the box. Since every thing's converting to digital, chances are there may be a few remaining channels in analog still in basic, but those will be gone by February 17, 2009.

User Avatar

No, PCM is simply a digital representation of an analog signal. The actual analog to digital conversion is done by an analog-to-digital converter.

User Avatar

It's the way the signal is sent. Regular cable is sent analog, while digital cable is sent as a bunch of 1s and 0s. The digital stream is more efficient, so you can cram more channels into the same signal.

A Motorola digital cable box is used to changed an analog television to digital viewing. The cable box needs to be connected to a receiver such as a roof antenna and then to the television. The television then has to scan the box to locate signals that it can receive.

by analog to digital,digital to analog signal

Analog instrument are interface with digital instrument with the help of analog to digital converter(ADC).ADC converts analog signals to digital signals.
