I'm considering purchasing a Panasonic HS-830 VCR. However I want it in Black instead of silver. Fortunately the HS-830 is available in Black on the the German/Euro spec model. The same VCR in the UK only comes in silver which I do not want. Price is about the same but my question is: Will a German/Euro spec VCR work in the UK with no compatibility issues? The direct link to the site selling the VCR is: http://www.computeruniverse.net/products/90056210/Panasonic_NV_HS_830_schwarz.asp I assume it will as the Voltage is the same and they use PAL as well but need to be sure before ordering. I understand Germany use Pal B/G whereas we use Pal I, but I know this is a selectable option on some UK VCR's. I also realise the Germany use a different carrier to NICAM but the specs for the VCR above state NICAM Digital Tuner as being onboard. Can anyone advise?
