I did a quick search and found the following information.
Power supply (V) AC220 - 240 V 50/60 Hz
This tells me it might not work since it doesn't support 110 or it might not have enough power to function properly in the US
DLNA certified yes
I couldnt find anything about ATSC or NTSC and PAL. All of our shows that are on our home server are from the US but some of them are .mkv and mp4 and avi so I dont know if that helps either in determining if it will work in the US. I guess I was more worried about the power.
Thank you all for your help.
My "guess" is since it says 50/60hz it may also work with our 120v. Personally I try it briefly and see what happens, my guess is the power supply is universal but they just don't say it. I'd be less worried about plugging a 220v device into 120v that the other way around. Low voltage just might not work, double the voltage something is designed for would be sure to cause damage.
OTA HD ATSC tuners start ~$40 from places like Amazon, search for iView 3500 which has HDMI as well as component outputs, oh with a USB HDD it also works as a single channel DVR.
As long as your TV is capable of displaying 60hz(sometimes called NTSC) you should be good to go. I've been told most European TVs(50hz) also support NTSC(60hz) but not necessarily the other way around.
I've never seen one but I wonder if anyone sells a N. American 220v plug to the Euro socket(two round pins)? One thing that would complicate things is we have so many different sockets for 220v, one vertical one horizontal, both horizontal and then you get into the various range style sockets(all for different amperage devices). Personally I'd still try the device on 120v and see what happened but no guarantees.
We currently live in Switzerland and bought a samsung ue55F6510 TV. Its a great TV and was hoping it might be able to make it back to the states with us next year. To save money will it work in the US without a transformer? We plan on having it hooked up to an HDMI cable so no worry about NTSC and PAL. Just wanted to make sure the lower voltage would still be fine for the TV. The company will ship the TV so again no worrys on cost of shipping just didnt want to buy a new TV if we didnt have to.
I believe you will need a transformer just get one that matches or exceeds the wattage of your TV .
