    Maybe not the brightest of ideas...but...

    A tv only solves tv viewing problems...

    subscribed to a donggle since they came on the market, i will always need an internet conection in the m/h and i have a spare computer and a roof mounted projector and screen etc.... you can see where this is going !

    i kind of like the idea of killing several birds with one stone, the big screen , tv via the net and able to work the same as at home and the A class layout i ve gone for is increadably ideal....obviosly i ve considdered power and the built in gas tank lends itself to a small gas generator....

    Is this a step too far ? !

    Streaming video via a dongle will sometimes be fantastic and sometimes be worse than useless.

    Projectors are always good!

    Try downloading broadcast programmes or just using dvd.

    used all makes of dongles all over the country with my laptop and started with 3 and still with them as although not the fastest, it seems to get a signal in places where others dont and is fast enough to stream .....To be honest my home broadband isnt much faster ....

    i worked out with the a class layout i should be able to project at least a 50 inch picture and be sat at least 12 ft away from it ...

    with the projector and screen attatched to the roof theres still bags of head height rolled up and it ll make a fantastic lounge for in the evening...

    tv catchup , i players , zmovie for latest releases and no need for a costly bulky sat dish and the same set up as home... even got a wireless mouse for remote control !!!

    oh no.... another thought...surround sound off computer !
