Does anyone know a mini-TV that runs on AA batteries? I want one for my hideout
I have a Casio model that runs off four AA cells.
You do realize that analog signals were switched off back in June of 2009, right?
My Mini-TV is now a fascinating paper-weight.
Nope, didn't know that.
I have one of the casios and even though we've switched over to digital it still works
so i don't believe all the analog stations have been turned off.
if you want it, make me an offer.
i have the ear buds and case.
I too have been searching for one.Amazon had one listed but it disappeared before I could order one.You can still find low powered analog stations in some places in the US,but if you want max usefulness you need one with a digital ATSC/NTSC tuner.
FLO TV is the most recent thing I've seen.
It's a subscription service and appears to only be available in urban areas.
I made a recent topic, asking about FLO T.V.
Do you think it's worth the monthly fee?
Forgot to mention that my Casio hand-held actually does pick up one channel. It's a signal that's apparently coming from Korea. I'm sorry, but that doesn't count as a working T.V. :thumbsdown:
I found one called a Tivax Scout it has a 3.5 in screen and uses lithium batteries normally ,but can use aa with a base that they sell.the base doubles the size of the unit and adds 30 bucks to the cost. The only others I can find are larger 7/8 in .
It only appears to work in certain metro areas and requires a subscription so I would say it's very limited in scope. If they somehow managed to make it totally mobile ala XM/Sirius, I might be interested.
I have to agree with you there.
I appreciate the response. :ty:
Built in ATSC (digital) tuner. The product exists, I have no idea how good it is.
Nice find! O0
If that thing works the way my old Casio used to, I might just have to pick one up.
Heres one i found for 10 bucks on craigslist
Cant beat the price,would be perfect for a hackaday user project or some kind of spy cam project.
I have a SONY that works with AA but no longer can watch because of the TV changes....
But I know if I travel too another Country it will be a good one to have....
I recently saw an older Sony one at Goodwill for $2. I passed. I already have 2 that don't work now, plus a 7" one. Those new 7" are neat, but they want nearly $100 for them!
Just saw these at Sears.
I own the Eviant one from Sears. It uses a built-in proprietary rechargeable battery. Not suitable for emergency situations unless you have a generator to power the AC charger. I have not run it down to see how long the battery lasts. I use it on the 8th floor of an office building. Attached telescoping antenna wouldn't pull in any stations. The included magnetic mount high gain antenna works pretty good.
Bottom line is this one won't meet your AA battery requirement.
