Pay peanuts, get crappy transformers. I've had one of those cheap Chinese jobbies quite literally burst into flame on me after being left on for too long... 500W for ~300W is a tolerable margin, but please make sure you switch it off whenever you stop using it.OogieBoogie wrote:I was in Funan vicinity yesterday and gave it a shot. I found exactly what i was looking for at a big electronic shop on 2F. It cost me 69SGD for a 500W. They even had 1000W (99SGD) and 1500W (159SGD). It's actually cheaper than the prices i've found on some website.
No such beasts exist, the TV has to be designed from ground up for the correct system. Buy a new one.So now, should i buy a new TV or can i find something that can transform PAL in NTSC... no idea
No it does exist, I just need to find a place that sells some at a correct priceNo such beasts exist, the TV has to be designed from ground up for the correct system. Buy a new one.
You will probably be using a cable box, which will be PAL only, if you use the antenna connection. However, you should be able to use the RGB connection and connect to one of the video connectors. You should also be able to do the same thing with a DVD player.OogieBoogie wrote:So now, should i buy a new TV or can i find something that can transform PAL in NTSC... no idea
You will need to find a multi output or NTSC output DVD player and/or you will need to find an NTSC to PAL converter, (google to find) unless:OogieBoogie wrote:I already have a Starhub box, which I'm mainly using for the Internet right now. I never looked at the back to see what's output i have, i will check tonight.
What i hope to do is plugging the Starhub box on a DVD player that would be able to output the signal in NTSC. I'm sure this kind device exists. Do they?
I have to say i know nothing of RGB, SVideo and stuff... I never really bothered, as i spent 10 years without having a TV. I just bought my first one 2 years ago.
