Question about Televison & Video
Most bravia do not switch between NTSC and PAL.
As you found out, this is a huge problem if you want to use the TV with either standard in the wrong region.
There are several way to proceed, all involve troubles related to conversion.
1) Get a Receiver, DVD, BRD etc. that support NTSC (now ATSC) standard. Many devices of this kind have dual PAL\NTSC that can be set using the built in menu. You will need an external receiver to replace the internal receiver.
Do the same with the DVD.
This will be the best solution in terms of picture quality (you get full HD). Replacing all devices can be expensive. Check if your BRD or DVD supports NTSC. Computer and console can be connected to NTSC TV with no big troubles.Just set up the console, computer VGA does not need setup.
Here UK freeview receivers that support dual PAL\NTSC:
IceCrypt T5000 Digital Receiver
2) Buy a PAL to NTSC converter. This will be the cheaper solution. You will not be able to get 1080p using a converter. At most you will get a signal at 720p. The converter must still be connected to an external receiver or DVD. Any cheap unit will work using the converter. Here converters:
TV Video System Converter (PAL to NTSC)
Composite AV/S-Video to 720p HDMI V1.2 Converter - NTSC/PAL.
The second converter is much better
