Please when you are on site with free wifi do not watch your television by using your laptop, it just drains the system so even reading one's emails is very difficult in the evening.

If you must keep up with favourite soap then play the white man and use your own dongle.

To be fair the internet usage in most of Europe has way out stripped the supply facility

This was a major problem at Denia camperstop when we went there with MotorRoamers because some of the MHF members on site where streaming TV and Films taking the bandwidth down so low we at the far end of the site had little or no signal, it isn,t anything new Alan just unsocial campers.

You have NO CHANCE of things changing as the UK Sats are getting harder to find across the EU the more people will use internet to watch TV. 
Within the next 2 years IPTV will be fitted at new MH as standard, but the camp sites will not be able to cope...............
I have been playing with IPTV now for past 6 weeks and it is the way ahead the sat dish on MH will be a thing of the past very very soon

Would you mind please telling me what you lock onto first 19E and then how many presses up and down to lock into 28E. I have tied it here at home, but fail to clear picture. I think it is because of were I live so Portugal will test me somewhat.

Not been to Zahora so off to "google" it.

Yep, IPTV is really great. In Spain there are a few places offering it as a package ( the provider is locked to the MAC address of the box ) so it cannot be moved from box to box. I bought a MAG 250 IPTV box and bought a provider's address on a month contract. In testing I have found that 2Mb download is needed for best picture, but a 1Mb will work but not great. My dongle uses around 500mb for a 5/6 hour usage, so it is a bit data hungry. Will test it to the full over December/January/February.

With the correct leads ( it will have a charging cable in the leads ) it will last for ever, however I don't think it will play the likes of Filmon or BBC iPlayer via TV out only iTunes stuff and utube stuff. 

I could be wrong of course you would need to send Apple an email.

But Alan, this is the future unfortunately with the way things are progressing but it will need the site owners to provide suitable wifi signals for all (that will never happen) Sad
