Just had a look for the supersonic 32" 12v TV on the website. Is there a model number or are they all 12v compatible?
I've just been told about a Glomex antenna instead of the GME variety which I understand doesn't need a separate digital receiver??

This is for an Australian boat too, so the cable isn't what I'm looking for, just the broadcast TV.

Re: Marine TV Applications

It is the tv that determines whether you can watch HD without a digital receiver or not. The tv has to have a digital tuner built-in. Most if not all do now.

Ok thanks for that.
Purchased a 12v TEAC LED TV which now leaves me looking for a decent antenna system. Heard of Digi Max ( or similar) which uses a twin antenna , amplifier combination or alternatively a system of some description from/ by Shakespear. Any tips appreciated.

Am thinking of increasing my hard drive movie list by the way.... Just need a decent program to help out.

Any modern programs are pretty good today , the biggest drama is the TV not having enough oomph to sort thru the files at a reasonable rate, one way to overcome this is to have a USB stick , it's a bit of doubling handling but done properly you can have ,dramas, sci-fi ect all cataloged on USB sticks, they are also more safer from the harsh environments .

Re: Marine TV Applications

I built my own antenna for about 10 bucks using copper tubing and with my amplifier I get stations from Philly and Baltimore.
The best program to play movies with is free called VLC.

In an insomnia crisis, I checked my old PC monitor/TV set, a 23" AOC. 12v, just like minaret said. It's working perfectly plugged to a Fusion Marine AV.
