My company needs to buy a PAL format TV for testing. We're looking for a model that is non-autoswitching with SCART connectors. Anybody know where this could be obtained? Size isn't critical, probably anything 20" and up would do.

I figured this board would be THE place to ask.

Thanks for any and all help.

WITH SCART?

I don't think you're going to find it in the US. There's a Sampo set that's PAL/NTSC compatible (and HD capable) but I don't believe it has SCART

Go to the German site Hifi Components (Link Removed) and order from there. They say they'll only ship within Europe, but I e-mailed them asking if they could ship the US too and they said they could. They have a good reputation and competitive prices.
You can call them at +49 (0)89 7485380 if you prefer that (I haven't tried, but I'm pretty sure they speak English).
I think it'd be very hard to find a SCART equipped TV in the US.

Just a comment on SCART. I would not constrain oneself to sets that only have scart inputs, in the end they are easily adapted to RCA leads. You say that even a 20" set would do so an RGB input is obviously not that important as anything under 29" will benefit little from RGB. S-Vid or even composite is fine. In that case SCART to Composite and S-Vid adaptors cost little more than $9. The link below shows such an adaptor.

The above adaptor supports both S-vid input and Composite and Audio inputs and output. NZ$17 is around US$9.
Mindlogic have several UK Sony TV models that sport scart connectors as well as AUS/Oceania models that do not. The latter are a we bit cheaper.

Somewhat related, somewhat not:

The All-In-Wonder Radeon 7500 card I bought SEEMS to have PAL capability, though I haven't tested it. Can anyone tell me whether or not the North American AIW cards support PAL?

The Radeon cards adapt the signal going to your monitor for TV output. PAL/NTSC is a non-issue for them

U.S. Military personnel are constantly bringing home dual PAL/NTSC systems from overseas. Look for a bulletin board where mil people sell their stuff or look in any pawn shop around a base.
