You have said that often, and there are certainly antenna installers 
around, but the first two DTT installations I saw in the UK used set-top 
antennas, and our closest friends in London currently watch analog TV 
with a set-top antenna.  Our cousins in Edinburgh watch DTT with a 
set-top antenna, and every TV store I've visited in the UK has 
prominently shown indoor antennas.  The Silver Sensor comes from the UK; 
why would it exist if people there wouldn't use it?
