On board television

Bruceo,
i am in the search of the same.
Jack''s comments on the PAL-1, PAL-2, SECAM and NTSC is also applicable to the tv tuner as well.

I am looking into a car type radio dvd tv tuner, probably PLTVD158, (http://pyleaudio.com)that works on 12v, and a flat monitor accepting at least two video input, so as o have the option to use the flat tv as a repeater of the PC. Even I have a CD DVD RW on the PC, I will have entertainment aisle from the PC. (Dont want to mix Maxsea with DisneyChannel movies)

On the 12v Monitor side, i like tthe 22'' sharp aquos LC-22SV6U, 16:9, which has 3 audio inputs (http://www.monitoroutlet.com/M10098.html)

Alltogether probably will cost you 18.5 pounds and 6Ah plus audio.

But I am sure you have enough room.

Regards

fernando

On board television

Some of you might consider my solution. I bought a notebook computer for $650 and for another $100, added cable/antenna ready capability. With a cheap inverter in my car or boat, I can watch TV, DVDs, CDs, and listen to music that I have loaded. When I''m connected, I listen to internet radio and go cyber-loafing.

It''s only a 15" screen but I could have gone larger for more money.

On board television

I too am putting in a TV. Well, actually two. Go with the sharp aquos. The smaller flat screens ( certain models) are 12 volt or come with an AC adapter to 12 volt. I put a Sharp 22" in my master cabin( built into the bulkhead and that is wired to house current. Then I am building into joinery work in the main salon a 27" LCD TV that is AC only. It will appear to have been installed by the factory as it is incorporated into the woodwork. I have a Jeanneau 50'' so I had a little room to work with, but the idea with flat screens is to have them blend in and not be a danger underway...and they are so cool. By the way. LCD''s use a little less juice than plasmas''.

Samsung has flat screen''s 15 and 17 inch w/tv tuner and remote control that work off of AC and/or 12v. They are available on ebay around 300-400 bucks. I''ve used them on the boat and in my office after boating season.
Great units. No affiliation etc.

Re: On board television

All,
I have a 27" samsung that rarely gets used. It pulls 120W and is 110V. I toyed with finding a 12v but the one in the house is already paid for and not getting used. I'm adding Solar Panels and Wind Gen to the boat (already expensive) and with 4 x 24s I think I can watch the occasional movie at night. The beauty of this TV is it has a USB input on the side that I can load a movie on a thumbdrive and then watch the movie with no other power drain on the "house". The boat's inverter is 800w so that should be sufficient.

Would others be satisfied with this 120w drain on the system or should I pursue a 12v?
