Is this worth £50?
ALDI - Sunday Special Buys 30th August 2009
This says YES:
Camping and Carvanning Satellite Suitcase System : Satellite Kits : Maplin
They really arn't the same, the Aldi one needs to be mounted on a pole or tripod or some other seperate bracket assemble that you will need to supply yourself, where as the Maplins is truly portable it comes with all of the mounts cables etc that you should need.
Agree with Braunston also either the set top box is very big or the sattelite dish is small. My dish from the suitcase set is twice the size of the set top box.
I don't think this is their "mobile" version, mains voltage only (I guess) and no mount for the dish. Could live with "now and next" as opposed to a full EPG though
in my humble opinion the aldi one you are looking at would be a lot less fiddly than the suitcase type to set up.
but if you are going on the continent (south) you will need a bigger dish.
I say YES,
The tuner is worth about £50
12V Satellite Receiver for Free Digital TV : SD Satellite Receivers : Maplin
so if you want/need the dish it's a good buy.. the dish can be easily mounted on a tri pod or on your rear ladder .. :thumb:
The Aldi reciever is not 12 volt
Last one i bought was from B&Q £39 all the gear needed even a meter special offer is now fitted to my daughters house in s/France works a treat
The product info doesn't say what voltage, you may be correct,.. but a quick look at the box contents prior to purchase would confirm.
My apologies you are correct, I think I just assumed it wasn't as it did say 12 volt or portable.
Exactly the same as I bought last time they had them for sale.Works perfect and 12 volt.Only problem is, Lidle had them one week later for £25.My mate bought one.
