    Really???!!

    I always thought it was digital. The only problem being, your tv can't play digital ( or at least during those early days) so each LD players come with a DAC unit that convert the digital data/signal to analogue which is then output via video RCA cable to your TV.

    Got to read up on this more...heh...

    DVDs are fully digital I believe.

    Ah well, LDs still rock for their size and weight.

    No LDs are analogue. Just imagine an aluminium LP sandwiched between 2 pieces of plastic....
