Is this UHF tuner analogue or ditital ?

Without foreknowledge about the make and model of TV or PVR or whatever , and not powering up with a signal, any probalistic indicators? Date ? Size ? eg cigarette pack size analogue versus match box size multiplex/digital ? Are there dual tuners that could hande both conventional and multiplexed signals?

Back in the days of the GRAND TV switch to ATSC, I carried a card in my wallet listing all the settop boxes that could do OTA ATSC. There weren't very many.

"I'm not sure", is a pretty good indicator that it's NOT.

If it's just a tuner (i.e. IF out), I'm not sure why it should matter. ATSC was specifically designed to occupy the same bandwidth as analog, so a decent tuner should handle either. The only possible problem might be if the local oscillator has a lot of phase noise. That would not bother analog, but could mess up digital.

Any demultiplexing would take place later in the signal path -- after the signal is decoded sufficiently to allow discovery of information relating to the multiplex.

** ATSC is usd in Canada and the USA.

The UK, Europe, India and Australia use DVB-T.

** Correct.

A modern UHF tuner for digital TV is likely to be very compact.

The term " digital tuner " is used in the trade to describe digital TVs with antenna inputs.
