I will likely be moving from the US to Wellington, NZ in about three months or so. I'd love to bring my current LCD TV with me (or buy another one here at a similar price), given how expensive comparable models are in NZ. Shipping is all paid for, so that's not an issue.
I will mainly be using the TV with my existing PS3 and Xbox 360, but my wife has expressed interest in getting some local programming. If it weren't for that, my main issues would simply be dealing with the 120V -> 240V power requirements. I'm almost certain my set, which is a Samsung A650 series, will not accept PAL analog signals. I'm less sure though about digital signals, which is why I'm writing to find out whether a digital Freeview signal fed via HDMI will present problems for my display. I understand that HDTV signals are not made equal, and I'm going to hazard a guess that Freeview outputs at 50Hz, while my set probably expects 60Hz.
Is that definitely the case? If so, I may need to sell my current TV and find something compatible with 50Hz digital signals (I believe Philips and Sharp both distribute sets here in North America that qualify).
Thanks very much!
