    Having now collected my replacement motorhome we are in need of a 12v Sat receiver, anyone got one going spare, or a full suitcase jobbie maybe. the van is fitted with a dish but no conventional ariel so its another hole through the roof or get the sat set up. a motorhome with no working TV :Sad: got to get it sorted or change the motorhome, hee hee:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Whoops, sorry, never thought to check that. It looked similar to the one we got with our kit from Aldi which runs off mains through a brick or off 12v.

    12v sat receiver

    We bought one of these from Maplins 2 years ago for £39. It is 240v and 12v but we have only used it on 12v. Very easy to use and some preset channels.

    Hate to post this on here :RollEyes: but there is a S/H Maxview 12v free to air receiver for sale on the MHF site. £50 IIRC.

    I now await the wrath of the Funsters:Eeek:

    Great news Roger. I want to see pictures of the new motorhome. Hope you have lots of fun in it.:Wink:

    Have you got any pictures?

    So you will be taking it to Carmarthen?

    Hope it is warm for when you get scalped.

    I just popped into chat to speak to you, but you were not in there. That is very unusual for you, you live in there.:BigGrin:

    can you please explain how you run it on 12V when it only has a 240V lead and no 12v input?
    ah well back to the drawing board. More money down the pan.:Sad::Sad:

    12v satellite receiver

    It came with both a 240v lead/plug and also a 12v lead cigarette type plug. Because our van was already wired with a 12v lead we just plugged it in. The model number is
    SL 30/12. Picture is of back of digibox, sorry it is not very good.

    Hi Roger either take it back--- or get into the back and see what voltage it goes to after the 240 :thumb: mate reckons seeing that the first one went to 12v chances are high that yours will also run on 12v :thumb: go on Roger you know you want to do it :Rofl1:
