TV for Sussex Duo

Post by daveH on Sun Sep 24, 2017 2:10 pm

Hi, we have a Sussex Duo van but it has no TV, I would appreciate advice on what size of TV is most suitable plus spec, make and supplier. Thanks, Dave up!

Not the cheapest but certainly the best for motorhomes is the Avtex range.

Avtex 16" TV

Post by Wally Walgett on Sun Sep 24, 2017 5:24 pm

Hi, we have a 2000 Symbol which we bought 5 years ago. We wanted a TV and after much research decided on an 16" Avtex which has an inbuilt satellite decoder and disc player. It was bought from the Sheffield Branch of Towsure. Although not cheap £270 it has been well worth the money. We also purchased a "Maxview" satellite dish at the same time and use this with the Avtex TV or a status digital aerial we purchased late last year.

Hi,

We’ve just replaced the TV in our Sussex Duo. The 18.5” Avtex fits really well.

Thanks macmps,

We've settled for an Avtex but I plan to fit it on the off side of the van near the heating controls. I plan to fit an extra satellite connection point on the outside of the van to enable a direct connection to the TV, power will be taken from the 12V connector beside the 240v outlet above the work surface.

This is our 24 inch avtex near the heating controls on a swing out mount . 2 anker powered speakers provide much better sound . 
Screen shows music playing from the usb port .

TV for Sussex D

Post by daveH on Tue Sep 26, 2017 3:00 pm

Thanks jenny and peter that's exactly how I plan to mount the TV, how do you connect to an aerial, preferably satellite. Does the Avtex tune in to Freesat?

Telco 85cm flatsat, we have the autoskew version of this one http://www.outdoorbits.com/teleco-flatsat-easy-smart-85cm-satellite-system-p-2663.html 
Avtex does the freesat tuning, any questions just ask.  Hetty with dish up just outside Bordeaux.
