Australian Digital TV
We currently have a omni directional antenna mounted at the top of the mast.This is connected to a Teac combination tv / dvd player.Tv reception is quite good on normal commercial channels.When the analogue signal is turned off will the omni antenna still pick up a signal or do I need to look at replaceing antenna tv or both.Any help appreciated
cheers Steve

If you rescan all channels on your digital TV it should pick up all digital channels.

I found the reception was so strong that I had to turn the gain right down on mine.

I have a 'Majestic' UFO omni-antenna on the top of my 17m mast.

It worked fine with the original analog only Majestic 17inch LCD. I upgraded to a 22 inch Teac LCD with built in digital tuner and it is now FANTASTIC!

Replace your old analog LCD with a new digital one and you'll be fine. Don't even think about adding a set-top box to your analog TV as it just adds complexity and is yet another box to suck power.

(Hint... make sure that the LCD TV has a 12V input... don't need an inverter then)
