Digital TV Badness
One of the good things about analogue signals is that they fail gracefully. Many was the time in my younger years of watching a TV program with a picture barely perceptible through black and white static, albeit with reasonable audio reception. Digital offers no such graceful degradation. Either you get a near perfect picture or you get nothing. I noticed this in regional NSW a while back. At times digital gave me nothing watchable, but switching to analogue gave something acceptable or better (?presumably? from the same transmission tower). Bad luck to you people in the regions who will now get nothing with the phase out of analogue.
