    Will be installing a television in the MH shortly.

    Should I get Digital, Analogue, or dish, or all three :Rofl1:

    Analogue will be going shortly won't it? At least digital is future proofed, isn't it

    What set up have you please?

    Cheers

    Hi SS and Keith.,

    That is one of the units we were looking at.

    If you recommend it then we will certainly be looking at getting one?:thumb:

    In my opinion Free view or Satellite are the choice of today, and a number of ways to get there as well,
    1 flat screen with built in free view
    2 cheaper flat screen and free view box
    either with a satellite dish and box
    best advise i can give is to buy your TV from the likes of asda/comet etc, look out for the power supply, get one that converts from mains to 12 volt and you have the choice of power to use, get one that converts from mains to say 15 volt and you can only run on mains or inverter.
    your budget and need for TV while away, will dictate which way you finish up, any more questions just ask
    Geo
    Just don't buy from the Motor home/caravan accessory shops, there is no need to pay an arm and a leg for your electrical equipment
    Just as an after thought more important than your choice of TV, is your choice of arial or dish

    Hi

    All depends on whatyou want really. I will tell you about our setup which comprises.
    21" LCD Toshiba TV with Digital tuner
    Fortec Star Digital sattelite Reciever
    Sky DigiBox with freeview card
    maxview 66cm elliptical dish, crank up sattelite dish (which incidentally gives much better reception when in spain than our 85cm Oyster ever did)

    all our gear is mains powered we found out by experience that running things through the invertor when not on a hookup gave us much better battery life than using 12volt gear (dont ask me why) but we have tried both and the invertor setup gives us much bettter battery life.

    Hi Steve

    I bought one about 2 months ago & am well pleased with it. Does Digital, analogue, av & monitor for laptop. 12V no problem I run it off it all the time.
    As I said speakers need to be better, a bit tinny due to their size.
    Light enough to be mounted on the wall but I had to make another bracket the stand supplied didn't seem man enough for my liking.
    Maplins sell them but cheaper on Ebay :BigGrin:

    Steve, these dont take the standard wall bracket you find in the shops. they dont have the predrilled holes to take the screws.

    The stand does come off and these are so light I had mine mounted on a wall by using velcro. I now have made a stand so it's stays on the wall all the time.

    That's the sort of mounting we're looking for at the end of the 2 bunk beds.

    Just need to look into splitting the signal from the dvd player to them.:thumb:
