I want to bring a USA region free portable dvd player and region free disks to Europe and hopefully hook up and play them on a Euro tv. Is this possible, and if so, what do I need to know to make this work? We are staying in an apartment in Western Europe with no English language cable tv. Thanks for any advice! I am not at all a techie about these things.
Welcome to the forum.
That all depends on if the Euro TV can display in the NTSC format, which is what North American DVDs are encoded as, or whether your DVD player can output in the PAL format, which is predominant in Europe. Basically, one of the devices has to be able to speak the other device’s language, and if not, it won’t work.
Don’t forget, the power outputs are also different in Europe, so you’ll need a power adapter for the player as well.
