Hi all
I know there are quite a few people who take their Fox / Austar box with them when they travel, has anyone run into trouble with this set up??

From someone who doesn't have fox but does have Sat & Vast what's involved?

I believe my Oyster Sat has dual LNB frequency

Please explain?

dont forget the 240 volt cord we got BT to fit another 240 Volt power point on the side of the internal circuit breakers.

Also when on 12 volt with inverter the Foxtel box does not draw enough current for the 1800 watt sinewave inverter to detect it and stay on so we leave the microwave on.
The clock in the microwave brings up enough current draw.

Off course always fine when connected to 240V
we do not take an IQ box it may draw more power.

Regards

Scott, easy setting on your inverter. I think if you just switch off and on again in seconds it changes the default with Xantrex inverter. Perhaps it it is switch on then off, but too easy. It stays on then rather than detect usage

We have no trouble at all. We have the basic box.

Mick - To do this you need to have it delivered to your home via satellite and not via cable or Telstra etc.

Understood.

We used to have Fox then opted out, but i have always wondered what's required. I maybe wrong but thought the original Oyster box took two cards, one for SAT and other Fox ..

So to get it to work you take the Fox receiver from Home and that is connected to rear of Vast box or Oyster box in van and it requires 240v OR is it a stand alone unit connect to TV via HDMI


Highly unlikely I would bother but interesting to know. :-)

Thanks for the input
We now have fox up and running
Having not put an inverter in the van when new we had to install a 300w inverter just for the fox box then it's pretty much plug and play we put the fix box from home with the card in it all good
