UK ATI All in Wonder 8500. Will it work in Italy?



Guys again I wil need your help. I have bought an Ati All in Wonder 8500. However as I will be relocating to Italy I wanted to know if I will be able to receive the TV channels there. As far as I know normal TVs from UK do not work in other EU countries as there is a different PAL. Can pls someone assist me? Thanks Dimitris:confused:

You'll certainly receive the video ok.
Italy uses PAL-G
UK uses PAL-I
The difference is in the frequency used for the intercarrier sound.
I usually get this mixed up but I believe UK uses 6.0 MHz whereas they use 5.5 MHz on the continent.
So really it depends on whether the tuner on your card can handle both soud/video separation frequencies.
Check whether the specs say PAL-I (bad) or PAL-I/G (good).

This is the systems, that it supports:

PAL B/G/D/K/I and Secam L/D/K

So you'll be fine...
