    • Hi, Where can I find the instructions for handling the Firmware upgrade? Thanks in anticipation.
    • The current generation of jvc bulbs seem greatly improved... Maybe 2000 is the new 1000 now
    • Faulty box that never crossed my mind as a possibility - Thanks for letting us know & hopefully that will resolve the issue!!
    • Although I try & keep away from antennas on mobile homes & the like, occasionally I have been involved with the Winegard variety. In my experience, they work because digital television can be quite forgiving, providing the level & quality of the signals are above certain parameters. I've also found the performance of TVs varies, & this can have an effect on viewer satisfaction. I probably get one call a month from a traveller who has just lobbed in to town, & find they can't get reception. It's usually one of 3 things, their receiving system has a fault, their location is not conducive to getting adequate signal, or they're parked very close to a mobile phone tower using band 28 frequencies, the frequencies that used to be part of the UHF TV band. The amplifiers in these antennas, (which have no inbuilt protection for these frequencies) can be overloaded by these signals, as the transmitters for the mobile phone service are sometimes more powerful than the local TV transmitter, & when you are parked within a few hundred metres from them, the tower may wipe out local TV reception. You're entitled to ask the supplier of your caravan what reception experience you can expect from the supplied antenna, & on what basis this is made. You may have recourse against them under consumer guarantees (should you wish to pursue it) if these claims are not met. Otherwise, enjoy it when it works, and engage in something else when it doesn't.
    • Hey Sands I see you have Seaton Sub. Is the folded horn more for music. Been looking at a few horn type designs. Also keen on building a couple of Full Marty subs, Starting off my first sub build with the FI car audio 15in driver I got from Deep Hz for $200. Also waiting on a Bash amp. Just going to copy the original XV15 but with a nicer enclosure and a Blackwood & Satin Box checkerboard design on top.
