    Hi
    I got this LG OLED coming in from the US and the website indicates that it runs on 120VAC 50-60hz but unfortunately our supply is running at 240V. I brought down one of these voltage converters - Diamond Series with Regulator - BEST - Voltage Converters and it converts from 240 to 110V. would the 10V difference be any issue ?

    thanks!

    I would be most surprised if the missing 10 volts made any difference.

    You could have a bigger problem than that - US TVs aren't designed to display 25/50fps video.
    North America uses 60/60fps video.
    Blu ray will be OK, 24fps for all regions.

    Of course it won't have a Freeview HD tuner either but that will not be important if you are sourcing your signal from elsewhere.

    No, the EDID won't list 25/50Hz modes either, I have had this before and in the US/Canada there are shops that sell European import TVs for this reason.
    There is an ex-pat market.
