I bought a 22" Insignia from Best buy last year and it has the 120 volt cord that goes to a transformer then 12 volts into the TV. LED screen so low power use

I'd point out that truck stops and RV supply stores have a lot of good 12 VDC equipment that is pretty useful for boaters.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Secondly, anyone found a marine quality HDMI cable longer than 3 meters? My run to the nav station is closer to 18' when routed.
You can get good high quality HDMI cables from Monoprice.com for much less than in the stores. I've bought many a cable and adapter from there; they have a great selection of things electronic, and I've always got my orders quickly.

Just looking real quickly I see they have a 20' 22AWG CL2 high speed HDMI cable for $20.08. A 25' cable goes for $23.36. Way cheaper than Best Buy or wherever. If all you need are small ones they have 1.5' cables for $1.89. Can't beat their prices.
