TV's in Thailand are PAL the UK TV's are also PAL so it should work.

Edit. Forgot to add the voltage is compatable as well so I cant see you having any problems.

The TV will work, but the tuner might not. I've known friends bring over video recorders from the UK only to find they can't get any of the TV channels up. I would think also the reverse to be true.

DVD's are not the same as TV's they are region specific (or most are) sometimes it is possible to change the region setting on the DVD player though if it is possible it is usually limited to a set number of times.

 

If any of your friends still have the video recorders or DVD players tell them to see if they can change the region setting then it should work. UK is region 2 Thailand is region 3.

I've received a PM from a member who pointed out that Laawman was talking about video recorders not DVD players.<div><br></div><div>My mistake I just assumed when he said video recorder he meant DVD as there are not many video recorders about these days.</div><div><br></div><div>What I assume was meant and something I had not thought about was the tuner in the TV that tunes the TV to the respective stations so it could be that it would not be possible to tune it into all the TV station in the UK. That is something I am not sure about.</div><div><br></div><div>If the TV couldn't get all the station one way around that would be to connect a VCR or DVD recorder to the TV and tune the recorder to the UK stations.</div><div><br></div><div>My apologies to Laawman for not reading his post correctly.</div><div><br></div><div>Al.</div>

It might be possible to re-tune the set to receive all the UK channels but it would involve the services of a TV engineer. As they would probably charge you £25 just to look at it, I don't think the idea may be economically viable especially as it would also invalidate any sort of warranty you may have.

 

I guess one of those SkyBox doo-dahs might work with the AV out plugs though.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
