I've done this with 3 different TVs and not suffered any problems. But I don't watch telly while the engine's running!

Very likely it will be fine with the engine off as the batteries will settle to a voltage no too far of the limit of the electronics within the tv , fine till human nature kicks in as I can imagine someone fireing up the engine for a shower etc with the tv still on.

The situation gets even worse with battery management systems as they charge when the engine is running at a higher voltage than normal alternator output , especially on the lead acid setting .
