"how many of the channels do you get?" Where are you going? Lots of Australia doesn't have TV coverage.

In country areas where you get coverage it may be by satellite. If it is terrestial, there may be anywhere between one and five channels.

Perhaps if you had put the Link it may have been easier to follow your question.

That Miss Lucky depends on one of three things. If .............
1/ if you are on a subscription service, how many you are subscribing too
2/ if you aren't on a subscription service, which satellites you are receiving from
3/ you could receive them in bunches when your extra-terrestial friends arrive

Most areas now have Digital TV, but last trip I did around NSW there were still a few areas where you couldn't get all the channels on Digital.

You'll also need a signal booster on your antenna.

hi guys

here is a link, Terratec, that page is in german, but you see the pictures. Its simply dvb-t over USB stick. That one here can use two channels for double Antenna signal power, brings out one program, or you see two programs with normal signal intesity, but then, you would be able to record on you harddrive one program, and watch at that time the other.

Would be on a notebook energy and space saving TV in a small camper. If we have coverage in major citys and around the coast, that would be a cheap solution for TV.

A Laptop can be a PITA to watch tv/video on if there's more than one person watching as the viewing angle of the screen is too narrow. Better off with a small LCD tv.

thats right, but I am thinking about battery usaged, too.

and you have a the digital record function, that lets you go to the restroom and proceed watching when you are back.
But a sat system would be interesting,too. Do you know an Oz dealer that has a good overview of products for campers?

I wonder what is avaible on the market to adjust the bowl on the roof.

Why dont you check out one of the forum sponsors...Derek at ABR (check the sponsor links) has a card that gives you Digital and terrestrial TV.

I tried one of those $30 ebay sticks the other day and it could only pick up SBS, SBS news and SBS Radio....useless!

This was in a suburb or Perth and using the supplied external antenna.
