BEING A LIFE-LONG NEW ENGLANDER,................
I CALLED A FRIEND AT BOSTON'S CHANNEL 5, HE SAID "NO."
Not the voltage, but the signal (tuner) would not be compatible.
I suggest further research. Good luck,
If you use the TV inputs rather than the RF input, I am sure it will work from the cable box.
But, by the time you ship it and buy a converter, it might be just as cheap to buy a new TV here and sell your old one.
In the UK they use the PAL system.
In the Us we use the ASCT or NTSC, they are not compatable. John
to pick up an old thread!
Many TV's in the UK have will work in the US 'out of the box'. My Poleroid works great, it is Pal and NTSC compatable. All i had to do was put a US lead in the back. and with my region free DVD player I can watch all my old UK dvds, new US ones and watch all the US TV I want via the Digital Antenna or Cable. Like I said many TVs will do this. But you have to look into it.
Need clarification please
Bighouses, when you say all you needed was a 'US lead' do you mean just a plug adaptor for your UK tv and multiregion DVD player? Did you still need a transformer for the voltage difference? Any clarification would be appreciated!
The TV mentioned was probably dual voltage 110/220
In that case all you would need is a new plug ("lead") for the US.
Keep in mind all TVs sold across the pond aren't like this.
