I am looking to buy equipment to copy from PAL VHS to NTSC VHS (and vice versa). I have been looking at the CMD-850 systems converter (available from USA) at about 280 US dollars. does anybody have any experience of using the CMD-850? Also any experience with DVD/VCR codefree combis? interested in the Sharp DVD-NC70, available from USA, as want to use VCR part for the playing/recording of NTSC. PS not sure if this is correct part of the forum for these questions so please suggest better place if appropriate.
