    Hi guys

    I have sort of gatecrashed here a little as I'm not a campervan owner, but a horsebox owner (please dont shout :Wink:) however seeing as its a query to do with the living quarters I thought you may be able to help!

    I have an existing tv in the living area (supplied by a leisure battery and also has a mains hook up) however its a bit archaic and needs to be upgraded to digital. I was wondering what the best way to go about this was?

    I have looked at 12v tv's however the gap it has to go in is only a mere 12 inches so its a bit of a struggle finding something that small. Does anyone know of anywhere that may stock them?

    My other option is to look at a digibox and an inverter(?) but not really sure what im to look out for in this though, and which is a good buy

    The whole electrical thing is a bit foreign to me, and after a few hours of trawling the tinterweb i am now thoroughly confused! Any help will be gratefully received

    This might fit too, and just a tad less expensive. :Wink:

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    P.S. Welcome to FUN. :thumb:

    The trouble is Bill, Cat01 is looking for something a bit smaller. :Wink:

    We bought a 12v/240v 10 inch TV from Maplins a couple of years ago and it works OK (when we bother watching it :Smile:). This One is the current equivalent.

    These look good offers but be sure to read the description of " B Grade offers "
    Which can be returned or used items or just damaged boxes .. I have purchased an item like this with no probs

    it perfectly safe to use a UK TV in Europe.

    same 230v voltage, same 50Hz frequency...but most of Europe used to use a different transmission system.

    Britain = PAL and Europe = SECAM....

    both now use the same DVB-T for digital TV.
