Hi all
Just trying to educate myself want enjoy this hobby and looking for bits and pieces to play with. I notice that there is a Satview secam/pal transcoder for sale on fleabay going very cheap. Does anyone know what this piece of kit does and would it be worth getting.

Cheers for now

It enables you to watch analogue transmissions using the SECAM standard on a PAL TV and possibly vice versa, only really useful if you are watching the French analogue channels on 5 West.

PS. He won't get much for it, as he's spelling it seacam and nobody will find it and also, many European manufactured TV sets handle all standards anyway. :)

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

My TV which is a good 10+ years old can handle SECAM transmissions (maybe even NTSC) as it can easily view the Analogue transmissions off 5w... :)

So unless you have a really old TV, then there really isn't much use for one of those Transcoders these days... :D
