Elgato EyeTV for DTT
Finally, I got myself an Elgato EyeTV for DTT. I can now watch digital television. The analogue signal for television will be switched over to digital signal in year 2011 or 2012, according to Digital Broadcasting Australia. I don't have a setup box or a TV with HDTV integration, and not plan on getting a new TV anytime soon. So the tiny EyeTV for DTT looks good for me.

The setup is very straight forward, just like all products designed for Mac. The picture quality is great. I know I should've used my 20-inch Apple Cinema Display for watching TV instead on the 12" PowerBook, but I will get it connected.
There is a 30 second news clip I recorded. I converted the clip to industry standard codec H.264 to save file size (from 37.9MB down to 3MB). QuickTime Player 7 (free) is recommended.
Connected and watching Channel 7:
