The Casema STBs have SCART out (yes, analog), analog cinch audio out and 
probably AC3 out.
No digital TV signal out. This same is true for the @home STBs, as those 
are the same.

By the way, this does not mean that analog is discontinued. For the 
moment neither Essent nor Casema is considering analog switch off. They 
are simply offering the analog signals also in digital format. And to 
make it attractive new channels are only added in digital.
