Hi,
Hope someone can help. I have started to consider a TV in the van and having difficulty with reception using a freeview box.
It has been suggested I try one of the Maplin sat dishes (about £69 comes in a suitcase) I don't really want to spend loads of money on a fitting a dish to the roof as in the early days of digital spent money on freeview boxes only to find they did not display subtitles, so want to try out the system first.
Either way I need subtitles on the TV.
Does anyone know if these (or any other makes) of free to view sat receivers can display subtitles? or if in fact the transmissions carry subtitles.

Thanks Colin

I do not know if this is of any use in your motorhome but Daewoo model SV900VHS is a video recorder with integral Freeview and it displays sub-titles.
These sometimes come up on ebay and it seems they are something a lot of people still want.
In the past month I have bought 2 one at £50 and a lucky buy at £12.50 both plus P+P.

Subtitles on freeview (freesat)

Hi Dencol

I think it would be a good move on your part to contact Roadpro and have a chat, they do'nt charge for advice. Look at there web site at RoadPro | Practical Products on the Move.........
first, then give them a call.

We are on sky freesat, and under the services menu, we can have or delete subtitles. So it is possible.

Do you itend to stay in the UK, or France, Spain, Portigal etc. Think about this, and have your answers ready when you (if you do) speak to roadpro.

If Uk only, then the Multimo may be the solution with a Zendher reciever, but I'm not an expert, Roadpro are.

Good luck with your research, and good viewing with sub's

Thanks for the info have looked at the roadpro website, Am due to take the van in for habitat check up next week and will also be having a word with Todds and will have a word with roadpro before hand. It now looks like with having a small van that I may not have the room on the roof so will have to look at the freestanding systems.

Intereted in the comments about theMaplin system as this is one I was considering and waiting to hear back from them re my quiry about subtitles. Could you give me more info on the problems with that system Thanks
