I agree Rolf.
Definetly the difference between PAL I & PAL G.
The sound spacing from the picture is different so when you get the picture tuned in the sound is not where it is meant to be!
A scart lead as channel Hopper mentioned will bypass the RF tuners and therefore the problem!
If its a Euro TV then there is no upgrade, no ferrite adjustment in the receiver, only a crystal change from 5.5MHz to 6MHz in the TV will work (then you lose the Europeant terrestrial and possibly the video playback). SCART is the only option. If the TV hasnt got one then run it through the video as suggested.
The question now is, as European TV is more interesting than Sky, why would anyone want to downgrade ?
I have a perfect picture and sound using the scart in two different rooms:for the bedroom i made a cable 8 meters long..but i have other rooms,the video is never a problem ,but in the basement i had to bring there the sound from the audio output of my drx 100 amstrad to a separate hi-fi,the problem is the terrace on the roofs where i can't have other cables exept the uhf cable.We wanna watch British TV becouse my wife studied english at the university,and maybe becouse we found the neighbor grass greener than our or maybe we don't wanna watch Berlusconi's tvs.
Might be worthwhile investing in a video sender Ugania, then you could pick it up where ever you wanted. The units are fed by scart or RCA plugs so it wouldn't be a problem. Either that or take a feed from the video using a small 2 way setback amplifier, you can then watch video anywhere as well.
Sorry,everyting is more complicated,I live in a building,where i own the first floor,the basement,the terrace on the roofs,two gardens..but there are moor floors on the building,all the cables are internal...if was possible to do something without causing trouble with the neighbours I could do it ..Usually I can manage in all kind of practical situations..This time a was looking for a simple device who could modulate or translate the sound from pal-i to pal-g,maybe the video sender could be the solution(but if a neighbour has a similar device...could be the risk to tranmit xxx films sometimes?)Very interesting your experience with the Bekker family..any sister around? Thanks UG!
