Where to purchase a PAL to NTSC signal converter?

Postby Calmday » Wed, 07 Apr 2010 9:57 am

I have been to Best and a couple of other places with no luck. LOL they keep telling me that such a device does not exist but I know better.

Would anyone on here know where to purchase one?

Possibly Sim Lim or Funan.

I remember having used similar devices during the times of ATARI, Family Computer/NES. So yeah, they should exist; I'm guessing Sim Lim rather than Funan.

usually modern electronics already have this built in, particularly lcd/led/plasma tvs, and dvd players. Even many old vhs vcr's do as well.

OK I went to Sim Lim today and found exactly what I was looking for. It cost me S$100. S$3000 later I made it out the door.
Great place.

Heh, expensive trip. :) You have to watch out at Sim Lim because a lot of stuff is not under warranty... and if you want the same thing with a warranty then suddenly the price is no better than overseas.
