FetchTV with American NTSC TV (Sony Bravia)

Hello,

 

I have an American Sony Bravia and it's NTSC. I've just got the Fetch TV box and when I try to use the HDMI the message says something is wrong with the signal. When I use the RCA cable, I can see the image but it's black and white and distorted.

 

How can I use it on my TV?

 

Thank you,

 

Clovis

Hey clovisjacob, could you please confirm what model Bravia you have and if its capable of 50Hz refresh? As almost all broadcasts in Australia are transmitted in PAL.

Re: FetchTV with American NTSC TV (Sony Bravia)

Hi -

 

Were you able to solve this?  Did you buy an adapter or something?

 

Does anyone know if there is a tried and true adapter that works?  I tired a cheap crappy one, and surprise surprise, it didn't work.

 

Any thoughts recommendations would be great.

 

Regards,

Tim.

Re: FetchTV with American NTSC TV (Sony Bravia)

Hi Tim, thanks for the question. I'm not able to make a specific recommendation for a PAL > NTSC converter. Cheaper converters may not include provisions for HDMI such as (PCM/ARC/HEVC etc) causing an error.

 

Another thing to consider is that the Fetch Mighty (3rd generation STB) can also put out 4k for certain content and this may also cause an issue with compatibility. Sorry that I couldn't be of more assistance with this. Let us know if you do have any luck.
