PAL to NTSC Converter


Standard Member
I have a US model Sony 36" Vega. I am moving to the UK in the Spring of 06. Will I be able to use my TV with a transformer and a PAL to NTSC converter to receive satellite signals from Sky or any other broadcast signals? Thanks, Aaron

You will need* a full digital standards converter, though, not one of the much cheaper analog colour converters. Fairly poor ones retail for about GBP300. Better ones are nearer GBP800. None of these will do an excellent job. Standards conversion is actually always best avoided if you have any interest in picture quality.

And a transformer as you say.

* (In all probability - most US TVs won't handle our 625 lines, 50hz image structure; if you find that yours does, things will be easier)
