    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...
