Why is a recently purchased Sharp Aquos showing analog as opposed to digital on the screen display when digital TV service is subscribed and the digital terminal is hooked up to the cableTV?

Did you connect the digital output from the box to the TV? Is the standard RF cable connected too? And did you run the digital tuner setup on your TV?

And finally, is your input selector set for the digital signal or analog signal input?

One of these should work, unless of course, you're not tuned into a digital feed from the cable company but are watching an analog signal being sent into your box. Not every channel's converted over yet and some signals are only still available in analog.

Maybe your cable company's converting the analog signal as well or possibly they haven't set up their digital feeds for a specific channel.
