    as new in this area, i dont really understand the use of EBS (offerd by this model) or the freeview offered by sony's range. can anyone explain in simple words please.!

    i'm considering buying the e85 from england but i will use it in cyprus. are there any possibilities that the tuner wont work? (ie. the ebs)

    so confused :-(

    UK model tuner is PAL-I only what broadcast sytem do you use in cyprus? SONY have mulitsystem tuners but FV is DTT and unique to UK in Europe as far as i know mate....... so a sony with an analogue tuner.....

    Rascazk is the man to ask........ sure he will be online to help soonish..... if it is PAL b/g/h then a german E85 may welll be a better option for you (cheaper too)

    some sites even have an english option and you can buy online see pricerunner.co.uk and look for E85 then click international prices

    Richer Sounds has this model for just £330 (brand new). Down from it's £600 rrp. Best price I'd seen previously was £400.

    hi rob20. the problem is that i will use it in cyprus where we use PAL B/H/G insdead of PAL-I used in england. although i dont know many things about these stuff, from what i read it wont work in cyprus. do you know if this is the case? can i "switch" it from PAL-I to PAL G/H/B?

    I'm the one who got it from Germany and it is fantastic. If Technicdirekt don't have any left just do a search via google.de, all you need to do is put in panasonic e85, it will pull up a load of sites and you keep clicking on them until you find a site that is in english (won't take long, only took me about 1 minute) then you will be able to get the Panny for a lot less than UK prices.

    Ireland is PAL-I but bosco can tell you what his german E85 can recive and yes they will deliver outside UK see the CD1 thread in speakers forum for german sites that ship across europe, most of teh guys on here used UPS Cash on delivery so didnt pay till the items turned up...How safe is that!
