    Is there a handset code to force the Toshiba SD-220E to output PURE NTSC?

    If its like the Toshiba 210 just go into Setup and select NTSC. You should have the option of NTSC or PAL only. There´s no hack needed.

    *Sorry, quick edit, I should have said the option of AUTO or PAL. AUTO on R1 discs should give NTSC playback.

    On the SD-220E you have a choice of PAL/AUTO but I also have an SD-100 and that has a handset hack to force it to output PURE NTSC rather than the usual more uk tv friendly NTSC (not to sure was the actual technical name is for this type of signal, 3.58 rather than 4.43 I think)

    Can the 220 output Pal from NTSC DVDs so as to use it with an old TV which can't cope with NTSC?

    I have an SD220 and would also be interested to know about a handset switch to output pure PAL. My old TV will play NTSC output from R1 discs, but squashes the picture into 4/5 the size.

    Can anyone help?

    Cheers, PeterL
