I'm going to have the same problem later this month when the analogue signal shuts down. Don't know what the solution is. There's a simple set top box for home use but of course no one's going to let us off that easy...

You boys down under just getting digital TV? We have it here for a couple of years already. You'll enjoy the crystal clear picture as long as you have a good signal, otherwise it will be all pixelated.

no we have had digital TV since 2002. They just turned off analogue signal so most of the older cars that came with a analogue tuner are useless

Sounds good. I checked out the ebay page you posted, looks like a reputable seller. I'm glad you found a solution for us all. This might be my next project in spare time.
