    PAL vs NTSC

    eiorga

      I have a Slingbox Solo box that I am using in Canada and I was wondering if it would work in Europe.

      Does the box support both PAL and NTSC or there are different models manufactured for the North American and European markets ?

          Yes    The PAL & NTSC only applies to the tuner, and the Solo doesn't have one.  Composite and Component are global standards.

            When you find out please email me and let me know ...

            I'm leaving for Europe in a week - and bought the slingbox specifically for this purpose.

            Now I'm hearing it doesn't work in Europe.

            Bummed.

             

            Did you find out?

                Where did you hear that ?   I can only repeat my previous post and tell you a Solo will work fine in Europe.

                    Have you tried it in Europe?

                    It seems to me that all I need is an internet connection - unless there is some "block" that the Europeans set up.

                     

                    Have you done it?

                        Yes, I have been running a USA Solo and a USA Classic for years in the UK, using the composite and component inputs.   The ONLY PAL/NTSC relevance is to do with the Internal Tuner of the Pro-HD, which obviously won't work in Europe.

                            Thanks so much …. we are running a Macbook Pro and have the sling box from six months ago.   Should work.

                            Leaving in nine days.

                             

                            Thanks again.

                              As I said in my previous posts, you cannot use the built-in tuner (you don't say what model of Slingbox you have), but there is notihng stopping you using the other inputs.  I am feeding a USA Classic and a USA Solo with my Sky box with no problem.

                                    I have the Slingbox Solo - set up in Boston in the USA.

                                    Leaving for Italy next week and hoping I can use it … will the Solo work there with a WiFi connection?
