    Hi
    Just wondered if anyone can help me on this.
    I have been thinking about purchasing the new Panasonic DVD recorder from America fro a while now. I am just not sure if it would record ok over here.
    I am not btohered about playback, I just want to be able to record pal broadcasts.
    Anyone got any ideas?

    I wouldn't of thought it would be able to record a PAL signal being a US model.
    The NTSC system is completely different to PAL in terms of scanning lines, fps etc.

    It's not like a UK DVD player or VCR that has NTSC playback. This is aided by the TV that converts the NTSC signal.

    Maybe somebody else could be more technically detailed.
