Default 12 volt Saterlitte Tv..

Been looking around to replace our 10" multi 12v tv for something a little bigger plus to have the Saterllite tuner and Freeview.

Which would you reccommend, cello,avtex ect ect. Seen from 180 -500.

Nothing smaller than 19", Sat/Freeview and low power usage.

This will be only used when off grid and travelling in Europe ect.

We have a 17" Avtex and it works fine but if it ever needs replacing I would probably get this one:

the built in satellite decoder board is fine for those who only want a few english and loads of foreign language channels. however you can get 12v sky compatible boxes too which give all the channels you get at home

Thumbs up 12 volt Saterlitte Tv..

Merry Crimbo everyone
Just had a good few days looking for the same.
We eventually settled on a Cello 19" with all the trimmings, but when it arrived, it was rather flimsy and the DVD DIDN'T WORK, ...SO that went back.
Had a good deal locally on an AVTEX L186DRS, with all you could possibly want. It's a beauty,great build quality, works a treat....and.....the wife loves it !!!! But a lot more wedge.

4 wheels on my wagon, and I'm still rollin' along

Our Cello does all it says but boy is it slow to re-tune and the sound is not brilliant
