Selecting U.S. Home Theater model for use in India

by fowlebc / August 3, 2006 10:07 PM PDT

I am moving to India at the end of the month and hope to purchase a Sony DAV FX-900W Home Theater to take with my. Besides bringing a voltage converter, will there be any other pieces of extra equipment that I would need?

many things

pal vs. ntsc (i dont know if india uses pal or ntsc).

regional codes on the dvd player. (your HTIB is meant to be used with dvd movies purchased in the US which is region 1. the region of movies sold in India will be different and will not work in your sony.)

there are probably other things that i can't think of right now.

Don't get a U.S. player

Besides the obvious power differences, the other poster is correct about region codes and TV formats. Region-free players are more readily available in other parts of the world, as are players that support both PAL and NTSC.

I have a friend from New Zealand who is constantly amazed at how restricted our choices are here in the U.S. He can get a DVD from just about anywhere and play it on his setup, but he can't buy me a copy of something he likes and pop it in the mail because I won't be able to watch it.
