    I have a sony slv-e710ux VCR, recently purchased second hand, which I am
    having problems tuning.

    From what I can gather on the case, it is a European model - so I'm
    wondering if the European broadcast spectrum is different to ours, hence
    causing this VCR to only tune in NZ UHF frequencies.

    If this is true, is there a way of manually lowering the frequency, or is it
    all done digitally? Can I perhaps change the RF modulator and get the lower
    frequencies?

    Cheers for any help,
    Jono

    The frequency bands are only one of the differences. There is also the IF
    bandwidths and the type of demodulation required. The changes require are
    much more complex than a simple tuner change. There is the IF, detectors,
    AGC, and some complex firmware differences.

    You would be best off getting a converter that puts out baseband A/V video,
    and use it as a tuner, providing that the PAL system you are on is
    compatible.

    if the VCR comes from the UK it will only do UHF and not VHF

    also UK has 6.0MHz sound NZ has 5.5MHz sound, apart from those problems
    it should work O'Kay.
