I flew in May with a cheap ($100) 32" tv. I was not taxed but my problem was that it did not arrive with me on the plane. Had to do paperwork at NAIA and had fun with the officials about the 'Element' brand name. Wasn't really worried about it being stolen. Found out that it was actually Delta's fault that it got stranded in Atlanta. They delivered the tv to QC 12 hours later.

Previously the USA used NTSC signals and the rest of the world used PAL.  This now maybe moot since most everything is digital

yup, always check if the TV needs a transformer or not. Not a big deal though in the Philippines.

 it's nice in the Philippines that you can just get an abs-cbn box for less than P2000 and have access to some local channels without any monthly payment.
