It's a pita to go through one channel at a time especially with 60 available channels.
I have not used it too much yet but on the house tv I have set up in the menu for favorite channels and its only about ten it scans thru.

Brought a 22" flat panel Visio from Costco. It broke my heart to pay for the 22" than the 26" on clearance but the 22" is the right size for my trailer.

I'm using a portable DVD player that I connect to the TV for movies. Since I have an unit that I really like and paid too much for (but worth it) I opted to use what I already had from tent camping. The portable DVD player came in handy on the 4th of July when the power went out for the day.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

22" Venturer in the bedroom and a 26" Toshiba in the main part of the trailer. Haven't used the one in the bedroom as we have only had the trailer out on one trip. Kids have used the Toshiba for DVD's and XBox tho!

19" Westinghouse and I will NOT buy another.
Picture is fine.
Menu's are OK but no option to scan only digital so it takes a long time
scanning analog signals that aren't there anymore.

Main complaint is sound.
Tiny built in speakers are very weak. We often run the TV volume at 100 and
still can't hear very well. There is no audio out jack on the TV!! I can
put a cable in the earphone jack and run that to my sound system input but
it cuts off the TV speakers when you plug into the earphone jack.
Once in a while the TV will come on with no sound at all.
I have to unplug it and wait a few seconds and plug it back in and "re-boot" it
to get sound.

No more Westinghouse for me.

We got a 22" in the bed room and a 32" Toshiba in the living room, I have HDMI running to the TV from a PopCornHour media player with a 2TB hard drive connected to it. On the drive I have my entire music collection, a few TV series and about 200 HD movies. The only thing I'm missing is the 5.1 sound as there's no way to connect the digital audio to the Concertone.

Where did you pick up the mount? I'm thinking of mounting my TV similiarly. I'm just using a 19" Dynex unit I got @ Future Shop up here in Canada.
