This may be a naive question, but which signals are PAL or NTSC specific vs. not? Obviously VGA is a computer signal which is not specific to any format. Similarly I understand all the analog formats (composite, S-video, etc) are specific to an encoding standard. But are Component Video, HDMI and DVI specific to NTSC or PAL, or not? Reason I ask is we're moving to the US for two years and want to buy a flat screen HDTV while we're there. We want the advantage of high definition there but want to bring the TV back to the UK. The weak dollar makes prices very attractive. Multisystem TVs seem expensive over there and are not necessairly HDTV. My hope is that we can buy a tuner which converts PAL to DVI when we return, and miss out the messy business of NTSC<->PAL conversion (one compromise to another I presume)? We obviously want all the features - wide screen, high definition, etc. Does anyone have either answers to the questions above or a good recommendation on how to proceed overall? Sorry this is maybe very vague. Thanks for any help.
