You can get software that will capture the video and convert it. It will also make the DVD for you. If the video you have picks up the signal then so should the capture software. They have options to set the capture signal to the French system so that shouldn't be a problem. You however will need a computer that can cope with the video signals. Otherwise it will record it but the picture will jump as the signals drop.
There are some cheap software on the market for doing these, such as Sony Movie Studio, Magix Movie Editor and one made by Serif.

How to convert VCR to DVD


no easy way to do this unfortunately. You either need to connect your VCR to a DVD recorder and record it directly onto DVD or use a device such as this http://www.dx.com/p/easycap-usb-video-capture-adapter-5707 to connect your VCR to your computer and record it onto your computer that way.

Hi, does HVMX1SHR model have SECAM? Thank you!


As far as I can recall from mine, it can read SECAM and convert to PAL or NTSC but not write to SECAM. Which is why there is a SECAM detecetion light on the front panel.

VHS tape created in France


If it was made with the French standard you will need a machine capable of playing SECAM formats. Your cheapest way to go is to locate a video transfer business which deals in tape transfer. They should have the equipment which can play the tape and record it in a format which you can use. Cost should not be that much.

Can i use my samsung ws-28a116t tv in france on the secam system


Yes. If you have a built in tuner, then that should be ok. If it is antennae or converter box, then that is a really good. You may just have to check the video size like Pal or NTSF, depending on what France videos format is.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

There is no regional coding for VHS. Its only for DVD's. All you have to do select the correct playback format - PAL/Secam/NTSC
Usually N.American tapes are in the NTSC4.48 format. You could also just set your VCR to "Auto".

Hope that hepls.

Playing VHS tapes from Belgium?


Yes, having invented TV here in America, we have always used the NTSC format. It is not compatible with the other formats. There are some commercial VCR's that can play any format, but very expensive of course. If it is something important that you need, take it to a TV editing service that can convert it for you.
