Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL40XBR 40 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

I recently moved from US to Norway and brought my Sony KDL-40XBR4 with me. 240V power was supported, no problem. I plugged a terrestial digital receiver box to the HDMI input and get an error message "unknown signal" on the TV. Is there a PAL/NTSC type difference between the continents still after everything has gone digital? Is there a way to change the settings on my TV to different frequencies or PAL/NTSC?

Hi,
KDL-40XBR4 and other USA model tvs only support NTSC color system and do not recognize other color systems in the world.
I'm afraid, KDL-40XBR4 will work in US only because it has only NTSC color system support circuitry.
There are multicolor system tvs available in other countries that recognize all kind of color systems like NTSC, PAL, SECAM, MESECAM etc.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

    Hi welcomjee,

    Thanks for your reply. Do you know of any way to convert a PAL signal to NTSC through a converter box? It is really too sad that I paid to transport my TV to Norway instead of selling it before moving from the US... Thought I would save a buck or two....

    Video signal converter would cost you more then new tv price because that kind of equipment is used in tv studios and price is very high.

How do I get a US Sony Bravia KDL-42V4100 to work in the UK?


I have encountered this before---there are set top boxes that will convert the NTSC to PAL and the only other concern is the line voltage being the same or not.

Are you trying to get the OTA channels? In that case you need to check out sites like antennaweb.org and tvfool.com. In many places, an indoor antenna will not work well for digital reception and both of these sites will recommend an antenna type for your location. They also give the direction to point the antenna for the stations. Antennaweb is very conservative in its listings. Tvfool gives significantly more information about all the stations around you that may be receivable with the largest antenna and correct positioning.

I hope this helps.

(Antennaweb.org lists only two digital stations in my location. With an exterior antenna, amplifier, and rotor, we actually get 10 in our standard setting and can get additional stations (losing the regular channels) on changing the antenna orientation.)
