Hello, I have a DVD recorder (Philips DVDR75) that can play R1 DVD's and also record in NTSC if I am copying an NTSC video. However, what I require now is too record something from the default settings (PAL) to NTSC. I have a contact in the states and we have agreed to trade UK for US shows, however he cannot play PAL videos or DVD's. I don't think the Phillips recorder will be able to re-record something that is in PAL converting it to NTSC. What equipment will I be able to need to record PAL into NTSC format. It doesn't matter if I can or cannot see the recording, aslong my friend in the states does then its fine. Hope you can help. Stu.
