For an extra £44 you can have five years guarantee new for old replacement.

Model: Kenmark LVD1586D It has all the usual features like auto tune.

I know three people who have bought - all delighted.

BTW I have no connection with Comet Electricals.

When I looked at Comet tonight, they have what I think may be the enhanced model to the above.

It's the Kenmark LVD1587D It's currently only available on-line.

Anyway I decided buy one, as it's more versatile, with less boxes, and wires all over the place. I now just need a decent quality voltage stabilizer as the company quoted in this thread is out of stock.

ianhc I dont think that is correct. If you put your charger on when on HU or start your engine you can get up to 14.8 volts, your 12 volt outlet sockets will carry this increased voltage. Thats why the inverter is best i think.

Hey ignorance is bliss, have now checked if I'm safe and my (frustrated) son tells me all my 12volt outlets are controlled by a voltage regulator as is my electrical installation in the house. Thanks for alerting me and who says 'the kitten never brings anything to the cat'

ianhc If you worryabout voltage surges etc and the damage that can happen why not use an inverter, this will allow you to use the 240v stepdown transformer that came with the unit and giving you 12volt stabilised power, you can also use the inverter for your laptop etc. The efficiency of these units are now much better, approx +/- 90 percent and the cost is very minimal.

We've had two of these in 10 months. They were both very good......................... until they failed
Now waiting for the third one



We got ours in the early Spring time and have had no problems at all.
Just speaking as we find and very happy with it.

wakk44 Just bought this tv and very pleased with it,only problem is I can't find the code to programme the sky remote to work it,even rang sky customer services and they didn't have the model in their database

john79 Don't understand about all this voltage surge and need for stabiliser. Been running TVs for 15 years with no problem, mind you I have a pilot like check list before I move off and my son who's an electrical engineer connects everything up for me, so maybe I'm living in ignorance. Rock on.

Not a problem for us as we are looking at it pretty much straight on.
I have never tried a side view so cannot comment on it.
