Ive recently moved house and have managed to do away with most of the indoor Aerials I was using for my HTPC.  Unfortunately its just not quite cutting it signal wise when Im recording more than one MUX at once (I have a HVR-2200 & another single DVB-T Card).  Im thinking a bigger aerial might help the problem?  I basically want to run no more than 4 devices off it at any one time (really only need 3).  Im not sure how old the aerial on the roof is but Im guessing approx 10-15 years so Im quite happy to replace it. 

Now as for replacements Im not sure what to get - Im thinking of one of these:

I live at the Oratia end of Glen Eden (in Auckland) and have a pretty good line of sight of everything from the roof (well Im taking it for granted I do as I dont particularly like roof crawling!).  If I go for the bigger one will I hit possible problems with having too much signal or something?

Funny you should show me that, my Uncle living outside Sydney somewhere (cant remember where!) had two that size pointing in different directions and just managed to get a signal :D..

may I suggest the following, the actual length of the Antenna is under 1 metre so it is not huge like the 91 element.
