Yes.

You just need to ensure you get the right lead with the sat box. Cant remember the TV input requirements, you'll need to look at it, or the instructions, but I think the sat box is a normal scart. Mine was fitted by Brownhills when I bought the van and works fine.

That's exactly the combination I have. Scart both ends.

Hi

Thanks for the replies.Just one more point we will be wild camping so we have too operate off 12volt. Where the tv bracket is I only have one 12 volt socket (cigarette type) how do I get around powering the tv and the Sat box together.

Check your tv mine doesn't have a scart. I think it might be 2 phono or jack, but I'm not sire from memory. I'll look tonight.

Pop into halfords. You can get a plug with 4 output sockets for about a fiver.

Hi David

Did a quick Google and as matchlessman says these are the Halfords type

http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_700281_langId_-1_categoryId_165489

Also check these out, slightly cheaper but Halfords probably more convenient

Hope this helps

Confession time..... I got Phil from Rhinoinstalls to do mine. Fitted a dome and then in the cupboard put the controller and receiver unit. Magic eye for remote stuck underneath the cupboard. Works brilliantly with the avtex TV but mine is the W153 and only a Scart connection. No more rotten lousy aerial issues anymore...... bliss! up!

Just looked at my TV its an Avtex W103D and the input from the box is via a jack plug (4 terminal).

Make sure you confirm which input your TV has so you can get the right lead.
