Digital Satellite

In addition to the tremendous channel selection, Digital Terrestial TV and Digital satellite also offers much better performance when installed properly. If you connect these systems the same way as regular analogue TV, you'll lose the picture and sound quality advantages digital provides. That is because standard TV connections are normally done via the TV aerial socket. This method provides however less video and sound information, since the signal undergoes several additional loss making signal processing conversions.

Types of connections

Digital TV can be connected up in several ways, depending on the type of outputs provided on your signal decoder.
The most common one is through the TV aerial socket via an
RF coax interconnect. Whilst not offering the best picture, it provides at least a definite method of wiring to a TV since all televisions have an aerial socket!
The next available method in Europe is via a SCART connector. SCART supports however various types of signals, including SVHS, COMPOSITE, RGB. Your digital decoder is likely to support COMPOSITE and/or RGB. Because Digital decoders work with digital video signals, they produce a virtually perfect composite video signal. So, if your TV doesn't accept RGB, you'll still get the best possible picture your TV can reproduce.
But RGB is THE best method for perfect picture transfer to your TV. Always look for this option when choosing a digital receiver. Modern television sets with SCART connectors already support RGB, so you don't have to worry about the TV side.

Today's video transmissions offer outstanding digital sound that's miles beyond anything you can get out of interconnect TV. And just as it's vitally important to use high-quality audio interconnects with digital sources like CD and DVD players, you should use nothing less than top-quality interconnects, such as Philex Interconnect, to realize the full potential of satellite TV sound.
