    What is the best VHS VCR for standards conversion ie NTSC to PAL or SECAM and vice versa.??

    I know of the Samsung SV 5000 - are there better more recent ones ?

    I think the Samsung SV series are the only ones which have an on board converter.
    I have a SV5000 and a SV3000 but they are rare machines.

    Beware of other multi standard vcrs.They say they are multi standard but they will not convert the incoming signal.
    ie if the incoming signal is NTSC then it will only record NTSC not convert it to pal or secam etc.

    I have also used my Samsung to convert a NTSC dvd signal into a pal signal then recorded it on vhs or dvd as needed.

    They are really unbeatable IMHO :thumbsup:
