    Newision with TV capabilities

    I have managed to find a supplier of Newision in Australia and they sell the NW618TVT which is the 7 inch USB touch with TV tuner.
    1) Can anyone confirm if this TV tuner will work in Australia?
    2) Does anyone have this model and if so what do you think of it?
    3) it says that it doesn't come with the antenna/s from the Aussie supplier. Are they anything special and can I make something up myself?

    One would think if they are importing it then it would be able to pick up Aussie TV.

    Looks just like a normal 7" lilliput - whether they have imporved since changing to Newvision i have no idea.

    It is probably just a standard telescopic antenna - try looking for part/spares on the newvision site and see if they have a picture.

    I was hoping someone in Oz has one to confirm its operation.

    WRT telescopic antenna, on the Newision website it says that it has 4 antennas which is what has confused me. Anyone have this unit?

    I don't have this unit but it's a Pal unit

    It will pickup aussie tv shows

    The antenna has a few options you can get bunny ears the butterfly antenna's or you can get a antenna with an amp so it picks up the tv shows and looks semi decent in a car as apposed to the other antenna's cause they need to be in a stationary postion.

    Whoever your gonna buy it from ask them to make sure

    If it's a show then get them to demo it if it's ebay ask them if it doesn't then you can complain and get a refund or threaten them with bad feedback if u must :P
