Choosing the Right Caravan Television
There are 3 main things to remember when choosing your portable 12v caravan, motorhome or boat television. The most obvious, and often most overlooked, is the actual size of the television cabinet.
Our caravan televisions come in 3 main size groups – Small (15″ – 19″), Medium (22″ – 24″) and Large (27″ and above) These figures are the screen size measured diagonally from corner to corner. To find the actual size of the cabinet of the TV, simply click on the “Full Specs” tab on the page for each TV and the sizes will be shown. Hold a tape measure diagonally in the space available then see which size fits best. Don’t forget, if you want a DVD you’ll need space to load them in from the side
Next is connectivity. Basically do you need Catch-Up TV and TV on Demand? If so, go for the Avtex Connected range – they are designed of course for Caravans and motorhomes and have many Catch-Up facilities as well as being able to connect to live TV via the built-in WiFi. Full HD Freeview and Satellite TV are included too.
Finally, we have media inputs, that’s either DVD, USB or both.
If you have a large DVD collection and watch them while you are away, of course, you may need a DVD player. However, the latest movie technology is USB input, which allows you to plug in a USB stick or portable hard drive so you can have more than one movie at the ready. The beauty of this technology is that you can also record on to the USB stick (just like an old video recorder), (please note this feature is not available on the Connected Avtex range) and pause live TV while you go and make a cup of tea. Most of our caravan televisions now come with this facility as standard, it is very simple to use once you have it and we highly recommend it.
We hope you enjoy your new 12-volt caravan television, and don’t forget if you have any questions we are always here to help on – 01594 888007
