    I have a fold-down tv at the front of my Scout and a portable tv at the back...does anyone know how different programmes can be watched at the same time? Do I need 2 aerials?

    I've had to suffer a wet & cold weekend away and had to watched kids programmes & constant arguing......never again!!! :cry:

    All you need is a SPLITTER.

    If they both have freeview no problem. If not you need 2 freeview tuners.

    as Brian said....a simple splitter then a seperate coax to both TV's.

    if you use a sat box and dish then you will need a second box for one of the TV's and a dual LNB for the dish

    autotrail sound system

    Sorry to hear about the wet weekend and grumpy kids but no matter what you do the watchers of the rear tele will always hear the sound from the front tele as the autotrail sound speakers for this tele are also in the back.:cry:

    2 tv's

    I have a Avtex tv in the rear lounge which has freeview, I can watch any channel available and still watch a different program on the dropdown telly at the front which has its own digibox next to the Sargent control box.

    So only one aeriel required, but two digital sources.


    regards

    Ray

    If it is you will maybe have a Humax freeview receiver sat in the cupboard by the power supply unit.. Let me know if thats the same set up and I can explain further...

    the speaker wires were put in, so can be taken out....or disconnected in this case.....only got to pull/cut/de-solder the connections off the rear speakers :Wink:

    Regarding the rear speaker thing..
    You only have to go into the radio setup and turn the volume to zero for the rear..
    Simples..... No cutting, no solder and you can turn it back on when you want..
    You will have a setting for left and right balance PLUS front and rear balance... !!!!

    Thanks Tonka but it's a late 2009 model and there isn't a Humax freeview receiver in the cupboard. :Sad:

    AH... Stuck in the middle ground on this one then. I have a 2005 model apache 700 and familiar with that AV setup.. Also a new 2012 version which has a 7" screen in the dash and Tv inrear.
    Not sure on the 2009 setup. Can only assume that the cab drop down screen has it's own built in freeview receiver and the TV is the same. that being the case I cant see why you would not be able to tune in seperate signals..
    Regarding audio,If your TV is an Avtex, they have a transmitter that sends a signal to the cab radio for broadcast. May be worth checking the handbook / menu's as this can be de-activated.
