  1. Hi all, This month's competition is a Premium Satellite Suitcase kit with Easyfind. It's simple to enter - https://www.satgear.co.uk/win It's a great kit for use in the UK for UK freesat TV and has everything you need including the set top box. Very portable, easy to stow away and couldn't be more simple to use. See the kit here. Thanks, Darren.
  2. Just to remind Caravan Talkers that there's only one day left for the Avtex TV competition. Here's the link: https://www.satgear.co.uk/avtex-valentine Cheers, Darren.

  4. One really simple to use Satfinder gadget that we are now supplying is the Easyfind Bluetooth Smart Meter to use with your mobile phone and works with ANY satellite kit, not just easyfind systems... If you are a satellite TV user or maybe thinking about Sat TV then this meter makes life easier than ever before. Take a look at it here and order now in time for Christmas. It will make a fantastic gift for your partner Any questions - feel free to ask or pm me. Thanks, Darren.
  5. I wanted to let Caravan Talk users know that that it's not too late to order for Christmas and to take advantage of a 10% 'out of season' discount across our whole site. One very cool brand new gadget is the Easyfind Bluetooth Smart Meter to use with your mobile phone and works with ANY satellite kit, not just easyfind systems... It's well worth taking a look at here. Wishing All Caravan Talk members and our customers a very Happy Christmas. Kind regards, Darren.
  6. As long as you are in cellular range which can't be said for most rural parts
  7. If you decide to upgrade, here's a few SkyQ travel kit options and if you just want the LNB we can also help. Just sayin' Happy to advise if you want to call. Cheers, Darren.
  8. As a reseller of 12v TV's including Avtex, of course I'm going to recommend them but I've looked at a lot of 12v TV's. We supply Opticum TV's as well which are cheaper in price, they are also 12v and fantastically sharp HD picture quality just like Avtex but they don't have a DVD player unlike the Avtex TV's which do. There's no doubt about it, Avtex are a great TV company, fantastic support for the supplier and the end customer. For what it's worth, if you choose an Avtex TV we will also pricematch if you can find them cheaper elsewhere. You'll find them listed here. Feel free to call us if you want further advice. Thanks, Darren.
  9. These are really helpful replies. Thanks so much everyone. Clearly there's not a one size fits all. I'm just trying to get a feel if there's a specific brand that's favoured over others and more importantly if there are brands to avoid based on consumer experience. BUT ALSO > I am looking to stock a simple range of quality batteries. Currently, I'm putting together a complete solution for a Glamping site owner who doesn't have 240v at the pods. So each pod will have a 12v sat tv solution running off a 12v leisure battery. Probably anticipating that the battery will last for say 10-15 hours viewing before charging and maybe used for a bit of 12v lighting as well at a push. So the batteries that I source/supply are going to be key. Hopefully that additional info helps as well for anyone else that wants to chip in... D.
  10. Hi all, From time to time we get requests for leisure batteries for a complete solution to go with our satellite TV kits. It would be very cool if you could help me with some quick answers to any of these questions... If you had a choice, what battery would you recommend for your needs? Have you had problems with the battery you have? (if so what?) Do you go wild camping very often? Do you wish you had a higher amp battery? Any insight would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance Darren.
  11. Agreed - except if the user has Sky Q already and wants to use their receiver to continue to get sky channels and recording services. Also agree that broadband on a caravan site is a complete non starter even if sites say that they have wifi available,. That's down to available bandwidth. Just about ok for email but for streaming TV, forget it for a long time to come on most sites.
  12. Absolutely I completely understand this. There's definitely a lot more tolerance than one degree on our vuesat square dish kits. Also you can use the 'measure' app on the new iphone or the compass app on the older iphones. They both have a level if you swipe right when in the app. It's a useful tip. however, following basic principals of satfinding, set the elevation lower than you think, move from East to South, if you don't get an indication on the satfinder (or Easyfind system), notch the dish up a little, move the dish again from E to S and so on. Following that process will have the correct alignment in less than a minute (usually). But for the purists out there - here's a photo attached of the iphone app in action... too easy.
  13. Hi, yes just read this thread. can confirm that we supply a SkyQ kit - currently on sale here: https://www.satgear.co.uk/satgear-sky-q-portable-satellite-dish-kit-with-tripod-satfinder-and-cables-plus-sky-wideband-lnb Happy to help with questions... Thanks, Darren.
  14. Hi Vin, trying to not hijack this thread so keeping my answer short, I just read your article, an interesting read with lots of detail - although maybe a little daunting for some newbies to satellite TV. As we know, sat users want it to be a nice and simple setup experience (hence your article). From my perspective, we just need to know where east is and a steel dish (the material for the vast majority of sat dishes) won't cause a problem for a simple compass eg - smartphone app :) Just sayin'
