    I have one of these, not ex-display cost £170

    12v Power but you will need to buy a 12v in car adapter because it doesn't come with one, the sound from the TV is poor, ok when your still but if your driving it distorts, I have it running through a setup that involves a normal car stereo and four speakers,dead easy to wire in, I now how free-view with amazing sound, if your slightly interested I will post photo's of how I did it.

    Tony it's not a FREESAT TV.. only freeview, ie Aerial..
    The OP is after a small TV with built in freesat (satellite receiver) AND 12V....
    There are TV's out there but tend to be larger sets like 32" plus..
    I'm not aware that one exists as the demand/volume will be to small for manufacturers.

    why dont you go down the 240volt route through a inverter or would it draw too much current? the benift would be you could get humax recorder and not be a slave to tv timetables I.E. go to pub watch wathever later :thumb:

    sorry misread the op.

    they used to do a scart version of the receiver that was about the size of a cig packet for about the same money.
    that way you just don't see it as its behind the tv.

    12v 18.5" tv with built in satellite

    Hi everyone, I have been reading your discusion on 12v tv with dvb-s(satellite receiver) and thought i should let you know that i have some insider knowledge from a friend who works in the tv industry that a company called Leisurepower have just taken delivery of a set called the Versat which they have designed and had manufactured.
    It`s an LED 18.5" 12v tv with built in DVB-T AND DVB-S, DVD, USB etc,etc.
    Just thought i would let you know.:Wink:

    Satellite tv

    Hi Wildman, I have just been in touch with Leisurepower who have told me the sets have arrived and they are in the process of uploading pictures and spec to the website, should be on by sunday. The best thing to do is give them a call, i spoke to the sales manager nick who is very clued up on the set. I have ordered two already which are being sent on monday. I wouldnt waste any time though 102 have sold already.:Eeek:

    Hi Andyman,
    The sets are £399 which includes a three year pick up and return warranty, it`s usually two years but as an
    introductory offer they are giving three years. The offer expires on 20/12/11.
    Cheers.

    Hi all.

    Your discussion came up when searching for our TV name and domain.

    Gray 888 is well informed!

    Our VERSAT sets have arrived, and are indeed priced at £399.00 with 3 year warranty til 20th DEC.

    If there were any other to compare it to, I would give you the option, but currently, this product is unique in the UK.

    All specs, images and prices are to be found on our website now.

    I am available to answer any of your questions on this matter.

    We are prepared to offer free advice to any and all on this forum, and NOT hawk our products (as per the rules) but this thread has only one answer.

    Best regards.

    Nick.

    Unless someone can say otherwise.. THIS IS NOT FREESAT...
    The webpage states "free to air".... ie no FREESAT menu..

    So will not give a dedicated UK FREESAT program listing.

    However a fine looking product.. :)
