|Re: TELEVISION WITHOUT 12 volt CAPABILITY by Joe Diamold|
|I searched forever for a 12 volt converter box because I don't want to run my generator or have to use an inverter and kill my battery just to watch a little tv. Long story short, there aren't any. So I started talking to other campers when we were out and got some very good advice.
This guy from Arkansas picked up a 19" widscreen 12 volt tv and replaced the center part (the 1/4" board where the handle is) of one of his swinging cupboard doors with it. It looked awesome and the tv was top notch so I did the same. I went to the same place and bought the same tv. I know it's not too original but I'm not a super creative guy. I did get it all worked out in the end and it looks sharp!
I sure am glad I didn't find a 12 volt analog to digital converter box. This tv has it all. It's a 12 volt lcd flat panel with ATSC (digital) and NTSC (analog) tuners and a DVD player built in. This thing is frigen awesome as far as portable tv's go. Oh yeah I also added a 12 volt antenna signal booster, it really works. It claims to gain 23db. I don't think its quite that strong but it does work.
I bought the 19" Skyworth LDC flat panel from http://www.12volt-travel.com
