Re: Using Samsung LCD TV from US in Switzerland

HD HDMI is far less problematic than PAL NTSC over component, composite or even scart.

It would appear that your TV can decode PAL signals then, which Samsung do you have? Do you know if it can do this over all input types or just HDMI? You obviously would have to make sure your new Digi box/ Sat box supports HD...

Unlike the US unless they are very high end machines most non HD machines (DVDs Sat boxes etc) do not have component video out, instead the old Euro standard scart (some with a different form of RGB) and the worst component over a yellow rca. Converting scart to component is rater complex which for such sources I would think your US TV would require... If you were only interested in HD sources this would cease to be an issue...
