 I have a query about my Panasonic 'Viera' Generation 8 Plasma TV, that I bought in New Zealand. Will it work if I return to the UK? I know there are some issues with TV's purchased over there comming here. Just wondered if it was the same going the other way.

Only issue may surround the analog tuner, unless it lets you set 6MHz sound carrier then you may find you wont get any sound. But hey the analog service has already started to be shut down in UK, so should not effect you. Lack of SCART RGB inputs will limit what STB interconnect options you have, but if you get SkyHD then HDMI will be the interconnect.

 Cheers Cyril  ........ I had an idea from reading other posts about  TV's from UK to NZ. But trying to find out the other way is a little harder

The only issue could be the sound. NZ is PAL B/G. UK is PAL I. Check your manual for standards supported.
