    I've been looking at getting apple tv for while now. If I buy from the US it's going to cost be about £100 less. Can anyone see any potential problems with the hardware/software in running a US machine in the UK?

    I noticed it has a 2 pronged adapter, so if I plug a similar 2 pronged adapter of my own (UK version, like an old printer cable, ps2 cable etc.) would that work fine or would i just need to use the US plug that came with and a voltage converter?

    Would the TV run okay with it? My assumtion would be there's no pal and NTSC difference as everything running is digital, but worth checking.

    Anything anyone else can think of?

    *update, sorry completely missed the similar thread below that answered my question*

    There is no problem with it at all. The power supply is integrated and will cover the UK fine. The only thing you need is a british power cable. This is just a figure of eight cable (kettle lead) which is only a few pounds. Alternatively, you can use a US - UK adapter and use the existing cable.

    There is no differences in the software.
