True, but only to a point. If the signal gets too distorted, and the TV finds itself looking at a 1.0 volt signal, how will it interpret that? Was it a 0 or a 1? Who knows? And introduces bit errors. False colors and/or bad pixels.

Or.... it could operate on the margin, with numerous errors that are too small to break-up the picture, but large enough to create single-pixel errors. (Thus not giving you the true picture.)
For those just getting started in HD and Digital TV, the foregoing is an excellent example of NOISE and DISTORTION.
