    May seem a daft question, but why do you want a 240 to 12 volt adaptor.
    Just run the tv off 12v all the time. Plenty of 12v stablised supplies on flea bay

    If you've got a telly and your on hook up all the time , doesn't matter if its 12v or 240 v
    However if your planning to camp without hookup a 240 v telly can't be run without an inverter and this will drain your battery quicker than if you can run it on 12v .If so all you need is a 12v compatible tv ,a 12v socket ,a lead with the same conection as the imput on your tv,which can be easily be bought on ebay for a few quid.
    Then you can park in a field watch tv(if you have an aerial,or a DVD if not)
    And your tv will be powered through your leisure battery!
