    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.

    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

    ::bigsmile:Merry Crimbo everyone:shout:
    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,:thumb: works a treat....and.....the wife loves it !!!! But a lot more wedge.:cry:

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

    And ... should it ever be needed, Avtex customer service is 2nd.to none - so I've been informed by other owners.

    Ours has had intensive use for the last 5 years and is as good as new.

    We've just had the 21" Avtex with freesat/freeview/dvd. Picture quality is excellent.

    We have the Avtex satellite etc etc. we wanted to have one less thing (sat receiver) to plug in and it works a treat. We did look at the Cello but after reading lots of reviews decided to go for the Avtex.
