Can You Use A Uk Tv In Australia - Pana Viera Tx32Lx08
Posted 05 July 2012 - 09:16 AM
My brother shipped a UK Panasonic Viera into Oz and he can run consoles on it but when he plugs it in he doesn't get a picture. He apparently tried connecting a set top box too.
Anyone know if there's a specific setting that needs changing or if one of these TVs is even usable with Australian digital tv?
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Theres a possibility that you may be able to adjust the country setting in the TV (normally found when first booting up the TV) to a European region, however a STB should work fine.

The differences between UK and Australia are;
Australia commonly uses Band 3 VHF transmissions which are not used at all in the UK
Australia uses UHF channels which are only 7 MHz wide where as the rest of the DVB world uses 8 MHz. This makes most of our UHF channels different frequencies.
If in the installation menu you can select Australia as a country you will be ok. Otherwise as stated above get an Australian HD set top box and use an HDMI lead to plug it in.

This model is programmed with a UK DTV tuner that will not operate in Australia.
A HD set top box connected via HDMI should work fine with this set.
