Converters for NTSC TV

Postby ComingtoSingapore » Sat, 25 Jun 2005 3:45 am

Will be moving from the US to Singapore soon. Would like to bring in my 53" SONY projection TV (NTSC, 110V). Are there converters available to convert local PAL signals to NTSC? Can we get them at the local electronics stores or say Mustafa? Approximately, how much do they cost? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

There're plenty of Pal/NTSC converters available. You should be able to find them at Sim Lim or Funan IT Center.

But as for you TV (US-Made), do note that the voltage for most (in fact, I think all) of Asian Countries are 220-240V instead of 110-120 (as is found in USA/Canada).

Projector TVs are cheap now. Why not just sell off your tv there and get another here? :)

Hi,

Previous post by arrow makes a good point, but also try here ...

Better still, sell the old TV in the US, buy a good one here that handles both NTSC and PAL, then you can take it back to the US when you return.

Good luck

NTSC stands for Never The Same Color, correct?? :P
