just wondered if anyone knows if they make a 12 volt digital tv?..I camp out in the woods at times and still would like to catch the news, weather etc without the noise of a gen set.


Your question would get more attention if you started a new thread instead of ask it in this FAQ.

check amazon.com or truck stops like 'flying J'

12v TV's with ASTC 'digital' tuners are available

i think this question has already been answered several times, like most of the other questions, about buying or connecting a converter box, or new TV, or antenna

fyi - we have a 2004 Country Coach with 2 TV's, neither of which are digital. I contacted the manufacturer via email and they promptly responded.

I read somewhere that the coupons expire. Does anyone know if that true, if so, when? We don't really want to actually purchase the converter boxes and install them until we take our next trip.

Camping World has a Winegard converter box. Does anyone know if that one is on the list?

thanks for all the great info.

Is there such a thing as a (cheap) digital DVD player that has a digital tuner (ATSC). Idea is to use it instead of a converter box between a batwing and an analog TV.

If so any links out there??

I just lost my batwing antenna and I have an analog TV. I know I need a converter box but do I need a new antenna also. I need help.

dwallner,

You would be better served if you started a new thread for you post. It would also help if you would provide more information - "lost my batwing" doesn't provide much information. unless you mean that it has disappeared.

griping about the coupons running out and delaying the change over has NOTHING to do with the technical aspects of connecting one.

stay on topic
