Hello,

I'm moving from Canada to The Netherlands in a few months and naturally have an NTSC TV. I'm buying a converter (TVOne CDM830T) to convert the PAL signal to NTSC so that I can use my big screen TV over there for normal TV.

In terms of HDTV, I still haven't found a satisfactory answer to whether my TV will display HDTV in Europe. My current thinking is that as long as I'm on satellite or cable, the tuner will convert whatever transmission standard that they use over there, with the MPEG2 compression scheme currently in use into a standard 1080i signal that my TV will display. Does anybody know otherwise?

Thanks.

J
