What?

You can always buy universal 120 -240V adapter. Almost any modern appliance comes with one.

WTF is PAL B/G ?

Bro, there is nothing regarding B/G which separates PAL and NTSC.

B/G are the wireless protocols.

PAL and NTSC are TV standards.

Neither Slingbox nor Hava (Nagila?) boxes should care about the format of the input signals. Signal in, signal out.

Although I understand your religion will not allow you to have Hava.

So those same standards do not apply to recording or transmission equipment such as a DVD recorder/player and even a VHS recorder player. Damn things have changed in the States. B/G is the standard for sound attached to PAL just like I is as well. Here just click on this link and learn instead of arguing: pal b g frequency chart - Google Search

I humbly apologize. I live in the NTSC land, I did not know PAL had different audio channel standards.

People were using NTSC slingboxes in the PAL countries for years.

Slingbox:

Hava:

There could be some issues, I do agree but most/all of them are resolvable.

Ideally it should let you to pick up your TV standard during the setup. Don't know whether either of them implemented that yet.

DVDs and VCRs are the different matter altogether.
