Digital Tuner

Just upgraded my analogue tuner for a hybrid digital and was wondering from those of you with digital what to expect.
Analogue pic was fine until they switched the signal in april. Now digital in my area is great in the house but sweet fa on the car. Should I change anything else other than the tuner module? Is the aerial booster thingy different? Camping next weekend,gonna miss the German Grand Prix otherwise..AAAARGGHHHHHHHH

How?

How did you upgrade you analogue tuner to a digital one , and wouldn't it be hybrid and capable of both?

Yes it's a hybrid tuner but as most of the uk's analogue signal has been switched off now I couldn't tell you if it still works. Went camping in July south coast of England cracking picture, missus sat in the car and watched the Grand Prix. Had the tv in motion unlocked "thanks again Jas" and it worked most of the way home.
As for how I did it, I got a hybrid tuner from a facelift E53 from a breakers and simple as 1 out 1 in, hardest part was getting the modules out and back in to the plastic frame they sit in.

Is the blue plug on the hybrid tuner bigger than on the analogue and does it offer any other function on the digital tuner. I can't find anyone with a harness for the hybrid tuner. Would you know where to get one?
