Can anyone recommend a good quality 12v/240v satellite receiver?  Recently changed the motorhome with a Roadpro dome but our Avtex TV doesn't have built in sat. receiver.

Cello TV has one built in, google the 16" one. IMHO a better option than Avtex, though many will disagree!!

Thanks very much, we'll have a look.  We are hoping to buy just the receiver as the tv is absolutely fine.

I bought a Cello, & was VERY disappointed with it, very flimsey in my opinion & right out of the box it was damaged, contacted them & they didn't want to know, got full refund from supplier & bought a much better one from Sharp & i'm very happy with it, maybe I was unlucky, I DID try to buy British, but I learnt my lesson!!

My previous van, I fitted a Roadpro, but that had its own control  box, then I had to hook it up to a Maxview tuner box as well, 2 lots of wiring, fuses, switches etc. & of course 2 boxes hidden away somewhere.
TV with built-in tuners, far neater, & NO boxes! smile!

No, I have often said that Cello is very good value for money, we have one, never given any problem. Why pay extra just for a snobby name.

Works for me, but time will, as always, tell!

If you just want to use in the van then you only need a 12v powered unit.

Having had a discrete satellite receiver in the past, I was looking for one to recommend but looking today they are a thing of the past and I recommend you bite the bullet and buy a TV with built in receiver that is designed for caravan use - 12v and low power consumption. I would always go for Avtex but ecognise there are cheaper alternatives that may be acceptable.
