Unfortunately there's no guarantee for digital reception when using analogue reception as a guide. As a general rule you can normally receive digital television if you have a strong unamplified analogue signal, but this cannot be relied on totally.

With regard to communal aerials the same applies to a lesser degree, they can also be filtered, so that only 4 or 5 frequencies are allowed to pass, these of course will be the old analogue frequencies.

What I would always suggest is that you borrow someone's box and give it a try on your aerial, I'm sure you must know someone that will be prepared to lend you one for an hour or so.
