Does anybody know where and how I can buy
external NEC Teletext Decoder VX-101A

It looks like the middle black unit here:

It seems to be the only external WST (World Standard Teletext) decoder which has in and out in composite video (RCA) level.

I know that such units were popular in Australia and New Zealand

I need it for UK/German/Netherlands/Nordic PAL LaserDiscs with Teletext Subtitles.

Thank you beforehand

If you are after this particular model, it may be a struggle to find.
One collector lists the TX-101A but does not sell.
The Panasonic TU-1000X also has RCA jacks for video in/out.
They appear on eBay, but are US models.
Besides needing 110V, I have no clue if they would work with PAL.

Cheers!

This unit is only for US NABTS Teletext Standard which was aired only with NTSC analogue programmes...

This is not World Standard Teletext used in Europe, Australia, New Zealand etc.
