    Hi, I have a Coachmen Mirada and am looking to purchase a satellite tv system which must either run on 12 or 120 volt or both.
    I am looking for advice on a reasonably priced system that actually works too !
    I have heard there are some cheap ones but do they work.
    Currently I have been unable to get the winegard powered tv aerial to work, yes it does wind up and points to the sky and turns round and yet no signal seems to be picked up although the light switches on when i press the on button. Maybe I am not connecting the aerial cable to the outlet correctly ?? Does anyone have experience of this problem too ?

    thanks
    Sherlock

    the majority of receivers will be 240v/12v but i believe the automatic dish's are only 12v.
    manual dish and it doesnt matter of course:Doh:

    120v isnt a european voltage anymore so finding a 120v system will be just about impossible i reckon....but i'm prepared to be proved wrong..:Blush:

    Is your TV pal or the USA NTSC. You wont get anything if it's the USA one.

    Our RV used to get signal with the Winguard but the TV had been changed a European pal TV system.

    We have aNetta sat system on our rig. It os very good and easy to use. Last year we was in the south of france on the med and could get crystal clear UK TV.
