Why do new caravans still come with the old type coaxial analogue type sockets? HDMI has been around for years and a lot of modern TVs no longer have a coaxial socket.

I doubt that anyone knows the answer. I suggest you ask the caravan manufacturers.

All televisions have a coaxial socket for the aerial.

Likewise and one home Panasonic is less than 12 months old. It has 3 HDMI ports too.

I was a rhetorical question in case you missed it!

Our Avtex TV does not have a coaxial socket for the aerial?

Correct but they are for an audio connection and not for a TV signal.

Not quite sure why you would want HDMI in the caravan. As you quite rightly say, they are for unit to unit connections, so the caravan really doesnt need it.
