Default Freeview Box with RF Modulator?

Hi - grateful for your advice.

We purchased a freeview box recently for the spare room, with a view to
taking it with us when we go away in the caravan. Unfortunately, it
requires a Scart connection to the television - ie it will not operate
solely through the RF lead. Fine in the spare room but the 5" B/W
television we have in the caravan has no Scart socket.

Apparently, some freeview boxes incorporate an RF modulator for this
reason. Any recommendations? It will only be used occasionally and as
I said will need to be reasonably portable - so as cheap and small as
possible preferably.

Cheers
Shaun

Have a look at www.maplin.co.uk and carry out a search for
"modulator". Looking at the prices, however , it wouldn't be that much
more expensive to just buy a new freeview box with modulator already
built in.

Are you sure Tv is RF only input?
My Caravan TV doesn't have a scart but does have seperate video and audio
inputs.
We use a scart adaptor to link up.
Please take another look at the TV set and report back please.

Do you have one of these portable DVD players with the LCD screen built in?
These make a great TV feed by a Freeview box.

Just bought the Thomson 2300 @ Currys, it has a modulator, variable channel
output, software controlled.
With TopUpTv Card for 69:99, OK picture on RF, pity the TopUp Channels are
such a restricted time slot.

Very small and runs cool, 10Watts only with less than .5 Watt standby..
