You'll never get an answer to that, it isn't even a sentence let alone a question people can understand:rolleyes:

If I understand correctly you want to run your digiboxes off a 12v supply.

There are two ways to do this. The first is to buy a 12volt to 240volt inverter and then plug your digibox into this. They do consume a lot of power this way though - watch out for flat batteries.

The second way is to not use your old digiboxes but try to find a Pace Minibox. There are plenty on Ebay _http://search.ebay.co.uk/search/search.dll?from=R40&satitle=pace+minibox or try the small ads in the newspapers. The Minibox runs directly off 12volts and normally comes with a plug-in mains adaptor to supply 12volts. The Minibox is much more efficient in its use of electricity so the battery sould last longer.

I don't know the digibox but this is valid for everything, you can always by-pas the 220v internal power board an plug DC directly into the main board.(you may have to adapt the different DC levels ex. 5V,9V... but that is easily done with a simple IC)

I thought that in a standard SKY STB the tuner block runs on about 35V ?
