Found 17th Sep 2008
My daughter loves this and im going to get it for Christmas but unsure if this will work on UK tvs as its from amazon.com and the price is in dollars.
Do the tvs have different connections if that makes sense???

Thanks in advance and sorry if its a dumb question!

They wont send it to you any way

Amazon.com

Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S.



Do you have any friends in USA who can receive it and then send it on to you? BTW, yes it will work on our TVs, nothing to do with PAL or NTSC

Try hamleys in london they tend to have loads of the americam import stuff.

But yes it will work, as it looks like on pic 3 thats its only a standard phono plug into the tv, you can get euro scart adapters for these.

You may have an issue with power supply, we are 240v they 220v. But you can get adapters

Yeah i did read that but my daughter has never really asked for anyhing before, this is the first thing shes ever really wanted, just my luck eh? :-D

whether it's a phone or tv plug(socket) on that thing
you must remember 2 things
american voltage is 120V adaptor needed
american tv is 525 lines and NTSC format
uk tv is 625 lines and PAL format
this will ONLY work IF your tv is able to display at the american format (very few will)
best advice buy the UK version, it's guaranteed to work out of the box
may be dearer but by the time youve added import duty, vat and the £15 or thereabouts the post office charges for collecting the duty it works out cheaper to buy it here.
