Thanks for all the insightful comments on using 240v./50hz equipment in
the USA. My apologies to those who wondered what a playstation was
(it's a Sony video game system); until a month ago I didn't either! For
the record, it appears that using 50hz stuff here isn't a problem unless
the frequency is somehow being used as a time base, which is not the
case with playstations.
Thanks also to the "extra mile" people that wisely anticipated a video
compatibility problem (european PAL vs USA ???). I now know that this
will be the real problem in making the foreign Playstation work. I will
probably follow the advice of a couple of people who suggested picking
up a good used system at a pawn shop and using it instead.
Finally, thanks to everyone for indulging what wasn't even a radio
question, much less a Tentec one. You are a truly great group of people
for whom "elmer"ness is probably a way of life! Patrick, our 17 year
old German exchange student was honestly impressed with your knowledge
and your willingness to help.
