It plays NTSC perfectly, but the picture is streched so much, even if I use the settings and reduce the picture size as low as it can get, it still cuts off over 1cm top and 1cm bottom, which means I often see the tops of peoples heads cut off, or a foreign film, liek Japanese, the subs unreadable as they are cut off. Now i know you can get PAL NTSC covertors, and my PS1 and PS2 boot discs let you change picture to PAL, but then there is huge bar at bottom of screen, and I cant scroll down low enough to stretch it. My XBOX seems to convert the DVDS to PAL but I'm selling it tommorow to pay for bills.. Also the NTSC signal is dark coloured, I do have a HUE control, and a tint control.Which dont do much good. Plus NTSC signals are curved at the sides of screen which is annoying. Any advice?
