    I Have a BUSH multiregion DVD and a NTSC recordable VHS by Samsung.
    When I want to backup my region 1 DVD's, I have trouble getting the picture.
    When playing the Region 1 DVD in PAL, the pictures jerks but the picture is good.
    When playing in Region 1 DVD in PAL 60, the picture is recorded in a greeny colour.
    When Playing in Region 1 DVD in NTSC, the picture is recorded in Black and White

    Where am I going wrong?

    Macrovision? An analog copy protection system. If it's not disabled on your player then it can cause the mentioned problems.

    I have no trouble with the Region 2 discs at all
    I wouldn't have thought it was macrovision, when I bought it I was told it was disabled.
    The Region 1's record spot on in PAL, but it jerks!

    Ok, that should exclude MV then.

    Could only suspect a fault or incompability of the VCR. Is there any setting for different NTSC formats (3.58/4.something)?

    Not to insult you, but is it actually a NTSC recordable model? Most VCRs are NTSC playback only though I know that Samsung makes a model or two which are multinorm.

    Are you sure that this VCR is capable of _recording_ NTSC material?

    Many offer NTSC _playback_ - this doesn't mean that they can record it.

    From the sounds of things, it can sync to a 60Hz source (many 'sort of' can) but can't record the NTSC colour signal ... and it seems to be getting 'confused' when you feed it PAL60.

    From what you said. On the one hand it sounds like you VHS player not handling the NTSC input, but also could be a lead problem. Try using a better quality scart lead and I hope you are not using some kind of chaep scart switching unit??

    The VCR is a Samsung 645b and DOES recored in NTSC as it describes as 4.43 mode. This automatically selects the recording mode netween NTSC and PAL. The other mode is NTPB, which is just PAL.
    All my leads are the gold oxygen free ones, and I have also tried doing it the RCA way. My video displays a perfect picture through AV1 and AV2 and through the AUX depending on which I connect it to.
    My DVD allows me to choose to play in PAL, PAL60, PAL60R, NTSC ,Auto.
