If it says at the back of the receiver only 110-120v you need a power converter or you will blow your receiver.

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...

Maplin has a good 240v to 110v convertor:

Doesn't matter. Only frequency - sensitive devices such as record turntables, clocks etc. may not function correctly.

You really need a stepdown converter. Plug it into 230v and BOOM!

to follow up on the plug socket situation - opened up the box the resistor is for 250 v so the USA DG station will allow for UK type plug -

have just replaced with UK plug and all has powered on

just to let u know.

Just to let you know,

I cut the plug of my usa box and replaced it with a uk one. Mutant has been working fine for a couple of weeks.

One word of warning, I found my box did not have the socket for the Jtag and I had to solder one on.
