    Hello!

    I live in Portugal and I own a Samsung LED TV series 8 (UE40B8000WW), and I have a Nintendo Gamecube that I bought in the USA some years ago, which I loved to use! But never played with it anymore like for 5 years! Then I changed tv and here I am, so my question is:

    Before I buy a power adapter, will my TV read the NTSC image from the Gamecube? Or my tv is PAL-only ? I can't find it anywhere!

    Thanks,
    Juan

    What exact model do you have?
    Anyway, even my 1995 CRT TV set could read NTSC signals, but they were translated via a very good VCR, though with LCD technology, displaying NTSC video shouldn't be a problem.

    Or of the TV?

    Have you tried watching DVDs from the USA. They're are encode in NTSC.

    I think its not likely you'll be able to use it.

    No, my TV is from Europe! But I don't know if this Samsung LED tv model is able to read both, NTSC and PAL, so thats my question.
