You locked to a Sky STB watching Juice TV.

What does this have to do with Juice analogue broadcasts?

Did you read the part that said "Reason for this: they use an old Pace sky decoder locked to Juice tv up at the waiatarua broadcast station"?

Using RCA cables sounds crazy when they could be using component or s-video.

But after seeing what Trangle does to aspect ratios I don't think anything would surprise me anymore :)

Not crazy when they are feeding the RCA outputs to an analogue TV transmitter, RCA is and always will be better quality than a standard RF signal which is what an analogue TV transmitter puts out.
a TV transmitter is basicly the same as an RF modulator, only main difference a TV transmitter is designed for high power output, usually in kW through very thick heavy duty 50ohm coax cable to a transmitt antenna.  Compare this to a consumer RF modulator outputting a couple mili-watts to the RF in on the back of your TV.

Analogue is nasty but converting to it from a significantly degraded (composite) versus good (VGA etc) line of the same source material should show up a difference.

How do you know they are not using component or s-video?

RCA is a type of connector, not a method of transmitting video. Component video connections are frequently made using RCA cables.

Analog _IS_ composite, then bandwidth limited and filtered and modulated. svideo into a modulator is just stupid because that would either have to be redigitized to make a proper composite signal, or else just passively filtered to make a functional but crap composite signal.

I am so glad that they are operating it in widescreen and not letterbox like that bloody horse channel does. And the horse channel also have the nerve to tag it in WSS as 4:3 pillarbox so on one of my old CRT's I cant even zoom it to fullscreen.

Would be good if the other channels would output fullheight widescreen instead of that butchered 14:9 crap.

Yes please get your technology understanding correct, analog TV is and always was an RF modulation of a composite video signal, so whats the beef.
