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.
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.
