I'm looking for a 12V TV with built in DVD player.
Truck stops etc advertise 22" etc, I'd like a 32-42 inch TV.
the Jenson brand which is the only one I can find that meets those specs, has poor reviews (quality.)

Any other leads, brands, or ideas?

How about an inverter? I've never seen a TV that size that ran off of 12 volts directly. AFAIK even TV's in RV's are 120V and run off of an inverter and or generator.

Inverters is the way to go. They come in all sizes. A 150 watt inverter which plugs into the lighter receptacle should suffice for a small flat screen TV. The cost is about $15. If you are going to run more devices with a bigger inverter you can connect it straight to the battery. Harbor Freight carries the bigger ones at a good price.
