Does anybody here know if you can get a decent DVB-T signal in Whitby/Porirua? The Kordia map shows my area as being a likely/likley with high aerial.

Before I sink any money into this I would love to hear if anyone has it working in my area.

hmm, good question.   Whitby won't be in line of site of Kaukau.  Suppose you need someone to confirm if Baxters Knob is active yet.

The problem I have is that I dont have a roof aerial and my neighbour doesnt use theirs either (we both use Sky). So theres easy way to tell if we would get a decent UHF signal.

If I use "bunny ears" on one end of the house we get 1, 2 & 3 but no Prime but that could just be a limitation of the hardware 9ie the bunny ears!)

Whitby can be a bit of a hole if you cannot see Baxters Knob. If you can get MaoriTV Ch54 Horizontal  then you may have a chance.
