    Yep just need a 12v DC /DC regulated power supply as the van's supply can go up to 14volts and the electronics in the TV might complain :)

    I bought both over the years for different TV's and no problems with either.
    Clearly the 12V lead is the best solution (lowest battery drain) and my TV has never complained even on EHU with the charger doing it's stuff.

    I had a Tesco TV with the 12v brick in the power lead. I cut the 12v cable from the brick in half and fitted a cigar type socket to the brick output and a cigar plug with fuse to the TV side. Never given any trouble.

    Heaven knows, you've done hundreds lately. Which is pretty amazing as the software is supposed to stop double posts.

    no idea why either. sometimes it works sometimes it repeats 3 or 4 times and no delete option

    only this forum affected though. and as already said the software is supposed to catch any repeats

    We used to have in "the good old days" but Jim, "from whence cometh the light" does not trust us now.
