Co-ax cable is quite capable of carrying HD signals as part of a domestic cable service. However, optical fiber is now far more cost effective than copper so it si increasingly used for trunks with copper links carrying signals the last few feet into a home. Some are now taking fiber right into the home.

Regarding video signals within the home, co-ax cable is used to carry composite video (standard definition color signals) and this will not carry HD signals. This is purely because coaxial interfaces for HD in domestic equipment. Coaxial cable is still used widely in broadcast environments to carry SD and HD signals.

Can S-VHS record widescreen?

S-VHS will record widescreen video as long as it is standard definition. VHS does not support high definition at all. A feed from a source on either a composite or S-video connection will be recorded whether it is 16 : 9 or 4 : 3 format. In Europe, widescreen format has been used in standard definition broadcasts for almost 20 years. Many VHS recorders in Europe can also capture an indicator within the signal to show that it is in a widescreen format (known as WSS for wide screen signalling). The recorder will then pass the signal to the television on playback enabling the television to adjust the screen format automatically. However, in North America, widescreen has not been introduced for standard definition signals. VHS recorders often will not handle the WSS so if a widescreen format is played back, the screen format may need to be adjusted manually. Some experimentation may be needed to get the image format right.

Can the state use BAH to calculate child support?

Yes the state can use BAH (a military term for "Basic Allowance for Housing) to calculate child support since it is a part of your gross income. This is standard.

What is the definition of child support?

Generally, in a divorce when one parent is awarded the custody of the children, the other parent is ordered to pay child support so the child can share in the standard of living of both parents. It is the amount of money the non custodial parent must pay to help meet the expenses associated with raising their child on a daily basis. When determining the amount of child support, the courts must consider the state child support guidelines, the parents' income and earning capacity and the amount of time the children spend with either parent. Child support must be paid until the child is 18 years of age. If the child is living with the receiving parent and is in high school, child support will end when the child completes 19 years of age or graduates whichever occurs first.

Are both parents responsible for child support for a child who lives on campus?

By default, no. However, the obligor parent can file for a modification to require this. His level of income is not a variable other than needing a standard modification in support. see links below

How can a non-custodial parent avoid having his wages garnished to pay child support?

Garnishment is the standard means of paying support. However, the courts will often honor an agreement between the parents to pay support by some other means. In any case, the NCP should make payments to the court or the State disbursement unit, NOT TO THE CUSTODIAL PARENT.

Is RG59 Coaxial Cable compatible with RG6 Coaxial Cable?

yes RG6 should be used exclusively for satellite hookups and digital CATV. RG59 is fine for analog CATV signals but will not support the higher bandwidth used for satellite signals.

Can a s video cable replace a ypbpr cable?

S-video is a two wire interface while ypbbr is a three wire interface. Therefore, an S-video cable cannot be used for any component signals. S-video supports only standard definition, that is, PAL or NTSC color encoding. Component signals (ypbbr) support both standard definition and high definition.

What is the difference between composite cable and component cable?

Composite signals require a single cable to carry the complete signal. Normally, the cable will be terminated in an RCA jack on domestic equipment or BNC connectors for professional equipment. Composite signals support only standard definition signals. Analog component signals comprise three discrete signals, one for brightness and two for color encoding. Component cables are normally terminated into three RCA or three BNC connectors. Component signals support both standard and high definition signals. Three composite cables can usually be used for a component signal. For short runs, cable designed for standard definition will handle high definition without problems but as the length of the cable increases, so the signal quality will be degraded. If separate cables are used, it is important that they are the same length. Differing cable lengths can sometimes cause a noticeable color offset on the image. Digital component can be run on a single cable but it is generally only found in broadcast environments. Domestic digital component signals are normally carried on HMDI cable, a single cable with multiple signals contained in it.

Can you connect a Blu-ray player to a projection tv?

Yes you can. Use the HDMI connector on the projector if there is one. If not, you will need to use the analog outputs of the Bluray player and this will support only standard definition signals rather than HD.

Does it matter how many pixels tv has to play Blu-ray?

No, it doesn't. If the television has an HDMI input, it will handle HD signals and display them at the television's native resolution. For the best quality, the television will be a 1080 line resolution. If the television is a standard definition model, then it will need to use analog connections from the player which don't support HD. Any disc will be displayed at standard definition only in this case.

Does your 32f543 sharp tv support 480p or higher?

The television dates back to around 2005 so is a standard definition model. It won't support the HD formats of 720p, 1080i or 1080p. It will support 480i which is the standard definition format for North America. Note that 480p, as asked in the question, does not exist as a broadcast format and the television will not support it.

What is the definition of the word support?

Can sd be viewed in HD?

All HD televisions will support SD signals. The internal tuner will decode and display SD channels and all inputs to the television will also handle SD signals. In fact, all analog inputs to a television (composite, S-video, Component) will only support SD. In order to display HD, an HMDI input will be needed. There are a handful of exceptions with some older HD televisions providing an HD component input and a few that will support HD resolutions using and RGB input. HDMI is the only current standard for HD signals and will also support SD signals.

Are LCD monitors high definitions?
