T.V. in the fishhouse

Recommended Posts

I am looking to hook up my underwater camera to a t.v. this year and wondering what type of t.v. people use. What type of picture do you get? Do you run it with a generator or battery pack or battery? I have both a Marcum and an Aqua View camera.

I also have a Marcum camera(color), Last year using 110v power, I hooked it up to a new 20" Sansui HDV flat panel. Now I have way to many people stopping by to see it at it's best...Big screen walleyes,pike & alots of panfish. Sometimes I just watch the action, the picture is so real and clear that some people think it is a DVD. Just run cable for your TV and then to your camera(you will need 1 small adaptor for your camera). Good Luck

I am a bit jealous. With two camera's already it is hard to justify the color Marcum....but dang that would be nice. I also like the design of the color unit, it seems so much more compact. I have to say, compared to the Aquaview I like the Marcum much better. I have a lot of fun with the camera, nothing better for me then sitting in the house watching the camera and seeing all of what is down there...

I am looking for a decent TV/DVD combo for the wheelhouse. Is the Sansui a combo unit? Also, do you bring it in out of the cold to avoid freezing issues with the flat screen?

I picked up a TV/DVD/CD/MP3/Radio combo on the bay between d & f for under $100 (it's an under cabinet mount model made for kitchen applications). The screen is only 9" but you have your all in one unit right there and the size is fine, really you are only 8 - 10' away from it at any given moment anyway. Hook up the satellite dish, set up the camera in the corner hole and hook it to the AUX ports, crack a beer and let the vegetation begin!

I have 2 Sansui HD flat panel's in the house and now 1 in the fish house. The one in the fish house allow's you to slide the dvd in from the side, it doesn't take up any extra room. It stay's in the fish house 24/7...I also heat the fish house all winter long 24/7, I have a forced air furnace with 3 batteries. I also run a 36" ceiling fan which is a big factor in keeping the hole's open all the time. It set's 100 yards away on the ice from my front picture window. For security I have 2 solar polared night light's. The best part is, my decking business allow's me to have late fall day's off and all of the winter to fish almost every day. A friend of mine last year let his batteries run down and his house froze,he also has a flat panel. All he did was let it dry out for a day and it worked the rest of the season. Good Luck!

    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
    • The window on AIX that I read Usenet News on was....   I started on computers with punch cards, then moved up to a 2260 and MTMT (multiple terminal monitor task) which was an IBM Rochester homegrown thing for running terminals attached to the 360/65 we had at the time.   Actual first computer I ever used was a CDC 1604 at the U of MN.....
    • There I might have made it a little easier to read😁    Hope we are all still around in another 10 years!!
