Hello everyone, nice to be here! I am a Greek user that has no luck in finding a good, reliable and NTSC-friendly recorder. I simply need a DVD recorder that will LAST and will be able to record both PAL and NTSC signal. I tried a couple of Philips models and both stopped working after like 7 recordings- no kidding! Here in Greece it is kind of hard to find a recorder that will also be able to record NTSC, I need one because I have quite a few NTSC VHS in my movie collection. However I wouldn't pay more than $450. I visited a local online electronics store which carries a couple of Pioneer models that look promising. The problem is I am calling their customer service and they cannot confirm if these machines can record NTSC or not. Anyone here could help? http://www.megamarket.gr/pioneerdvr...c_subcat=1&keywords=pioneer&categories_id=215 http://www.megamarket.gr/pioneerdvr...c_subcat=1&keywords=pioneer&categories_id=215 Above are the links to the pages of my local online store. I'm sure nobody here speaks Greek but you may recognize these Pioneer machines and give me some more technical details! Thanks in advance!
