Hi Folks, This is my first post here, so bear with me if this has been asked before, but my cousin has just bought a Toshiba DVD player, which is multi-region, but he has now discovered that his old Sony TV won't play NTSC. Well, it does, but not in colour! I suggested to him an NTSC - PAL Converter, currently on offer at Maplins for £29.99. He phoned Maplins, but they have told him that for the converter to work, he needs a 60 (yes, sixty) Hertz TV, and his Sony is only a 50 Hertz, so it won't work. Well, I was under the impression that most TVs were either 100Htz, or 50Htz - I've never come across a 60Htz model, so one of us must be wrong! Could someone please clear this up for me? Am I correct in thinking that most TVs are 50Htz, and that either Maplins have got it wrong, or my cousin misunderstood? Further, will an NTSC - PAL converter work with a 50Htz TV? Thanks for any help!
