By chance yesterday I had the Wake County Simulcast system up on 2 different scanners sitting side by side. I noticed one was receiving activity on PS Tac 14 and the other wasn't. As it turned out, one scanner was set to receive both analog and digital, the other only digital. The transmission was analog. It was a fire engine crew.

I suppose there are still some analog radios in the network. So, I switched the PS Tac channels to receive both. Not sure if this is relevant or appropriate for any others but it likely means I was missing some traffic.

My XTS2500 always receives everything, not sure if it uses digital or analog.
There is no control to change between the two, AFAIK.
