I’m in the UK I recently got a USA VB and today I got a TAP from CEX. I was expecting the US verion of the TAP but it ended up being Japanese. I looked through this forum and can see people saying US VB + JAP TAP can work fine with the correct power supply in the UK. I also found a link on this forum (directly below) which has a JAP TAP power supply for sale.
Thanks for your response. I actually decided after reading a few posts to buy a UK megadrive for this reason. I own a couple of megadrive games I was saving for a future sega nomad purchase, but I saw one that looks really good and it was only £29 delivered, not much more than power supply! So it made sense. I went and bought a smart TV yesterday from CEX with scart RF and component connectors in preparation! 😂
My concern is it won’t work, perhaps because the TAP is broken. I doubt CEX tested it. I’ll probably return it if it doesn’t work. I’ll post an update here once I’ve received the megadrive and have tested the PSU.
