    i have an elddis 175 prestige and it has a small rubber car type aerial for the tv. Strange thing happening arrived at a site this week end and struggled to get tv picture. Eventually got 10 channels however everytime something 12v was turned on the picture froze, which indicates not enough power to drive the signal booster. Any ideas appreciated. This is with the motorhome connected to the mains

    Is your charger turned on ?

    Im surprised you got ANY signal with a rubber duck type aerial. :eek:
    Sounds like the converter utilised a regular radio aerial.

    The booster is built into the aerial. Something they changed the following year where the booster was seperate from the aerial.

    I think I would have that changed sharpish.
    I have a directional aerial and generally get over 100 channels
