    Have you bought a TV yet? you can get TV's with the Sat receiiver built in, takes up less room and if you get a 12v system you can watch the Sat TV without EHU

    like many others we have a sky receiver box. rather than messing about unplugging and bringing the one from the lounge at home, we pay for an extra room box so have all the same channels in the van. when outside sky coverage footprint we also have a 12v comag box which you can buy loads of places including maplin or ebay cheaply

    Avtex DRS models have a sat receiver built in as well as a terrestrial digital receive and a DVD, plus USB player 12v and draw under 2 amp saves on weight as well.

    Thats a lot of money to spend on one box and if it breaks you loose TV, DVD player, Sat etc all in one box. Look around for 12 volt TV, and separate Sat box much cheaper.

    I have a 22" Samsung Smart TV bought from Tesco which is 12v with an adaptor for mains - excellent as it has wifi built in etc and I bought a satelite tuner box on ebay for about £15, it looked essentially brand new as described, again 12v, a german build. Coupled with my cheap camping dish using the rubber sticker on the roof all worked well in France though I was not after English channels and would have probably needed a larger dish stood on a tripod.

    There are simple cheap solutions out there and at a time of moaning I have to say that I found the service from Tesco and the ebay seller excellent. The only reason I had to buy the tuner is that sometime I have managed to separate the tuner from the rest of the camping satelite kit which I bought from either Lidl or Aldi about 7 years ago for about £50, I think a similar thing is available from Maplins. Next time I sort the garage out I am sure I will find the original tuner now I have replaced it !

    Have fun what a great site. Clive
