UK TV in France

Posted by MPlb-182376 - Created: 14 years ago

I have a uk spec TV which I'm having trouble with in France. I was told it should work if I tune it through a French VCR and feed from this to the TV via a SCART cable.

I get a perfect picture but it is in black and white.

The video is quite old but is PAL/SECAM/NTSC compatible but I think that is just for tape playback.

Should I be able to get a colour signal through this setup.

Hi, most TV,s are multi zone these days and if you go to the set up menu it will ask you what region you are in if the TV is old you may only get sound and no picture and if you tape something the same might result if you have a uk video,it may be you might have to invest in a new tv/video regards Kev
