i bought a 15" polaroid for 150.00 LCD and it runs off of 120 or 12. i do not have a DC-Dc converter and it does fine but when i run the fan it has lines. Would the converter take care of this.

BTW, the TV i mentioned above also has a VGA-type 15-pin sub-D connector and can be used as a monitor for a computer.

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.

Dawg...Both the Insignia (store brand) and Magnavox 15" TV's Best Buy carries have the HD tuners built in bu they are obsolete 4:3 aspect ratio screens which will either distort HD pictures or leave you with black bands. Not a good choice IMHO.

Dawg...that is a 19" TV but at least you got me to the right site...they have an Element (house brand) and Polaroid 15.4' set with the wide aspect ratio and the HDTV tuner. Thanks for the pointer!

I have a Sharp 20” LCD HDTV (Model LC20SH21U) placed on a bulkhead. The TV takes up very little space. My antenna is something called the Boatenna. Purchased it form Boatenna.com The antenna works with my HDTV and it was cheep. I just hang it off a halyard.

HD TV onboard, Sunday Night Football & a beer or two, life is good!

jacky-
The lines are probably interference, either emitted by the fans into the ship's power system, or broadcast into the air (RFI) and in either case showing up on your TV. Cheap motors can make that kind of interference easily.
A dc-to-dc supply might stop it--if the "noise" is coming over the powerlines. First, try running the fans and tv on totally separate power supplies, with no wire connections between them. (That means at least one on an isolated battery source.) If that makes the lines go away...they can be filtered out with line filters. If they are still there...no such luck, no cheap fix.

Be aware that the units you're looking at are AC powered, rather than DC powered and as such will probably be less efficient for boat use. That was one reason I liked the unit at Best Buy... since it was 12 VDC powered.
