We need to buy STBs in either case whether it is dth or cable tv.

Picture quality might be good or bad depending upon their compression. For me in SCV they are compressing lot and picture quality is bad. Hathway when I checked in Bangalore it was equally bad. DTH where we used to complain about picture quality was better than this!

one disadvantage in digital cable i think will be when u shift your house to some other area / locality. Then that time the same provider might not be available there.. so it wont work there.

Disadvantages:

1: No price check on STB's so LCO's can sell the STB's at any cost.
2: Poor quality STB's and no refund.
3: Maximum compression so poor quality.
4: Have to return STB to the MSO with no refund and repay for another STB to another MSO if we shift to another area.
5: Double the cable cost for the same poor channel quality.
6: Monopoly, we can't choose LCO or MSO as mostly there would be only on per area with no choice.
7: No customer care and no ticket system, so all technical issues can be addressed only by the LCO so don't speak a word against him.

portability issue.

If I remember, I was using SCV and this is what I understood.

They have to share digital signals along with analog signals. They are using 8mhz bandwidth for around 8-10 such slots. In this they have to put all the channels which are being sent in digital.

SCV was using 64 QAM earlier and now I think they are using 128 QAM. They have no other option than to compress to high level due to shortage of frequencies.

Once analog is closed down may be they might utilize few more frequencies.

When they first started CAS in 2003 digital quality was very good. Then it started degrading slowly as they kept on adding channels.
