<img src="" align="right"> Following is the press release from Roadstar on what it claims is the world's first 10" Portable Digital Television…</P><P>”Roadstar reinforces its reputation for innovative portable audio and visual products with the launch of the CTV1042D 10" Portable Digital Television.</P><P>Masters of "entertainment on the move", Roadstar introduces the very first 10" Real Flat Screen IDTV. It not only allows you access to a plethora of FREEVIEW digital channels, but it also has an analogue tuner with teletext for use in marginal reception areas. </P><P>The clever feature of this design is that, using Roadstar's unique signal boosting circuitry, digital transmissions can be received via the supplied internal telscopic antenna. Obviously, this is possible only in Freeview reception areas; therefore Roadstar has also kept the analogue tuner system for extra flexibility. </P><P>Being so small, it's a great space saving solution for the home, and with optional 12V operation you the can of watch Digital TV whether you're at home or on the move! The CTV1042D also features a multi system function (PAL I + B/G, SECAM BG + DK) for use in many other countries. On the base of the unit, there is a detachable swivel stand to ensure the best viewing angle. The neat front panel controls are supplemented by a full function remote control with a sliding cover hiding the least used buttons. </P><P>On the back panel a SCART socket allows DVD/VCR connection and phono sockets for Digital TV output to another TV or recorder. Easily accessible on the side of the unit are phono inputs for a camcorder or games console and a 3.5mm earphone socket. </P><P>The simple on screen menu system makes it easy to set up, adjust and use the unit, and being "real flat" the CRT screen ensures high contrast and minimum reflections. </P><P>In the unlikely event that there is nothing of interest on the 30 digital TV and 20 digital radio channels, there is a 'Block' computer game built in! </P><P>The EPG (electronic programme guide) gives you a thumbnail view and details of the current programme with a scrolling option to preview all other channels. Normal analogue teletext is also included and a handy sleep timer makes for an ideal bedroom alarm clock!</P><P>* Dimensions (mm): W270 x H262 x D325 </p><P>Price: £199.99 </p><P>Available: Roadpro,
