SatPlus Travel TV Pay TV Mobile Caravan Satellite System

Product Description

PAY TV ON THE ROAD... YES!

Many of us like to travel to be away from it all.  To enjoy everything that Australia offers.  For those of you spending a lot of time on the road, who like to catch up with the odd show now and then, especially when the dark nights come early, it's nice to have access to TV just for an hour or two.  If you already subscribe to Pay TV then why not bring your decoder along and access all of your favourite channels like Discovery, BBC World News and National Geographic while on your camping trip?

THE IMPORTANT THINGS THAT MONEY CAN'T BUY

Should you decide to invest in a satellite system its important to know you can lean on us should you need a little support now and then.  We're a bricks and mortar business offering outstanding customer service.  There's never an issue that we can't solve in 10 minutes over the phone so that's reassuring.

PROVEN OVER TIME

The Travel TV dish reflector will provide you with Australia wide coverage and is a great balance of size versus performance when using it in a caravan. We've been distributing the Travel TV dish now for nine years and it's a proven performer with good features. 

    The TravelTV system includes our new and improved "super gain 80" dish.  This dish is elliptical in shape and its unique design eliminates the top and bottom section of the dish which has no impact on the performance as there is little to no reflection of signal from these sections.  Furthermore, the dish is stronger and less flexible than a traditional dish so lees likely to warp over time.  Lastly, we have chosen white over charcoal paint finish as the white painted finish reflects the heat rather than absorbing it.  Charcoal dishes get extremely hot in direct sunlight.

    Our TravelTV dish has been manufactured for us and includes a removable LNB arm. The arm is removed by undoing a knob at the back of the dish so no tools are required.  

    The elevation adjustment of any dish is critical and we find wingnuts to be difficult to use as it is hard to get the required tension on the wingnut to support the dish properly.  Instead we replace the standard lower bolt with a cam lock lever so when the satellite dish has been adjusted and the signal is peaked, it is a simple case of locking the cam lever and the dish is clamped solid with no further unwanted movement.  The elevation bracket has a stamped elevation bracket on the side however we find it easiest to simply pan the sky across North until a beep is heard on the meter and the signal quality is then peaked.  The dish includes a heavy duty padded carry bag with 4 internal pockets for you to store your connectors, compass, cables etc.

    The tripod included in the TravelTV system is adjustable for uneven and rough ground by way of a wingbolt that raises or lowers each individual leg.  Perfect for any terrain. It also features a bubble level so you can get the tripod pole plumb every time.

    There is nowhere in Australia where this dish will not work.  High performance even in the weakest satellite signal areas of NW Western Australia.

    Total weight of the TravelTV package is 10KG including the dish, tripod and all accessories

    The reflector is elliptical and it measures 83cm x 75cm.  It has a rolled edge for extra strength and is zinc coated then painted.

    The rear bracket is a winning design that is easily adjusted for different elevations around Australia. We fit all bolts with wingnuts so no tools are required. 

    The elevation assembly has 5 degree increments stamped on the side so you can adjust the elevation according to the charts we supply.

    The main LNB support arm is removable for easy storage by loosening off the knob on the back. 

    A BONUS padded dish bag is included and protects all of the components.  It has internal pockets for the small components, padding all round and enough room to store the cables too.

    A sturdy tripod is included which has adjustable legs for uneven ground, bubble level and peg holes in the feet.  This weighs about 4.5KG and packs down to 600mm. 

    Signalmax Tripod

      Decoder

      It's important to know which decoder you have so that we can supply the right package.  A standard pay TV decoder which cannot record will work fine with the standard inclusions in this system so no need to make any changes at all - choose the option "I have the standard pay TV decoder".

      If you have the Foxtel IQ or MyStar decoder (ability to record programs), you will require the LNB (on the end of the dish) to be upgraded to a twin output version as these decoders required two cable inputs.  As part of this upgrade, we'll include a twin 10m external coaxial cable, a twin Eziplate weatherproof entry plate and twin internal 1m coaxial cables.  Choose the option "I have the MyStar or Foxtel IQ decoder" from the options below.

      • Travel TV Satellite dish with padded carry bag
      • Professional SatPlus 3240b satellite meter
      • 10m highest quality, low loss RG6 quad shield coaxial cable

      • EziPlate through wall connection
        (If you've chosen the Foxtel IQ or MyStar decoder option from below, we'll include the EziPlate TWIN. You'll also get the twin 1.0m siamese internal cable too)
      • 4 x cable joiners

      QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

      Ask a Question
      • I have just had Foxtel changed from Cable to Satellite dish. The dish provided is 65cm and operates quite well. To purchase the required equipment to take Foxtel in the caravan do we need as big as 83cm dish?. This would obviously be a bit harder to travel with.

        Hi,

        This depends where you are travelling to.

        A 65 dish will work fine on the east coast. However in central and western Australia a 78/83cm dish is the minimum requirement.

        All our kits have the larger dish, but we do sell a smaller 65 for those just travelling in the east.

        Regards,

        Philip

      • I have a Foxtel iQ3 box connected to satellite at home and Foxtel say that I can't move my Foxtel iQ3 box as it's paired to my home satellite dish. Is this true, or can I take this box with me in the caravan and get TV with your Pay TV satellite kit whilst on the road? I'll want to free camp a lot and as the Foxtel iQ3 box is 240 volt then can I run it on an inverter (which model) or will I also need to purchase a Vast 12 volt box to get free-to-air TV when in free camp areas?

        Hi there,

        If you read Foxtel terms and conditions, it states that the box is to remain at the registered address.  If you choose to remove the box and use it with a mobile system then it will absolutely work providing it is a Foxtel satellite box and not a cable box.  It is not paired to the dish and will work on any dish that is pointed to the correct satellite anywhere in Australia.  For free to air you may require the VAST box.  As far as power is concerned, you will require a small inverter to power up the Foxtel box on 12 V.  They only use about 40 watts of power so the smallest PURE SINE WAVE inverter you can get will do the job.  The lowest power one's I've seen are around 150 watts.

        Cheers

        John

      • Hi Maybe a silly question but the weather proof wall plate goes on the outside of the van.If so is there covers for the plugs to stop dust etc from going in ?

        Hi George,

        Yes, the wall fitting has an architrave plate for the inside and a silicone rubber cap to keep out dust and water on the outside.

        Cheers
