Sony HXD870 DVR confused over PAL/NTSC??!

I have a Sony HXD870 DVR which is set to PAL-I (I live in the UK) and displays PAL TV signals beautifully. However, when I have tried to plug an Xbox 360 or a Nintendo Wii into its input port (either the SCART on the back or the 3 x composites on the front), even though both consoles are set to display PAL signal, it comes up with the following message:

"TV system of this signal is different from the recorder's setting"

If I go into the PVR's settings and change its 'Input Line System' from 'PAL/SECAM' to 'NTSC', the consoles display perfectly, despite the fact that they're both outputting PAL signal onto a PAL TV - how bizarre!

Any ideas?

SOURCE: Curtis DVD8723UK Wrong Region Problem

This may be of no help to anyone but I have the same problem and I have spoken to Curtis Support today, they say there is no fix, its a fault in the machine and must be returned to the vendor as they have no service network in the UK. I bought mine with a 90 day guarantee off Ebay and it went faulty after 100 days but probably only used for 3 days so I'm stuffed!!!

How to turn a sony bdp-s790 dvd multi region


Buy two players. One from each region.
If you ave an NTSC TV only, you will also need a PAL to NTSC converter, if you want to play UK PAL DVD`s on US or Asian TV`s. But I think all Euro/UK TV`s are all both color signals (PAL & NTSC).

How do I get a US Sony Bravia KDL-42V4100 to work in the UK?


I have encountered this before---there are set top boxes that will convert the NTSC to PAL and the only other concern is the line voltage being the same or not.

Hi - My question is basic - If I have a NTSC DVR can I use an external PAL tuner to enable me to receive and record NTSC and PAL signals?


There should be an output option that you change to NTSC (on your external tuner), Dvr's are pretty "proprietary", and are very sticky about accepting non-proprietary signals. For instance, a sattelite dish dvr, will not accept these inputs, nor will their hard drives re-format or zero out.

Convert ntsc to pal for sony bravia tv


While a modern PAL TV can display NTSC sources (namely DVD players and PAL VHS players that support pseudo-NTSC), an NTSC TV can not display a PAL source, unless it's an expensive multi-standard TV. Sorry pal, bad choice.

Can't display Pal on My Sony 57" KP-57WS520


There are probably a few problems here. What are you using to play the disc? Some NTSC players will "play" a PAL disc but interpret it as NTSC with the symptom you are describing. You need a DVD player that will play PAL. Many of those will output NTSC directly when set up to do so. The other alternative is to have a PAL compatible player that will output PAL into the converter. To narrow this down specifically, please post the model numbers and the connection scheme for your equipment. Once I understand your current setup, I should be able to describe a method to get this to work for you.

Not working


first you should know that the uk system is pal and the usa system is ntsc. ok connect your cable box using the rca cable to your converter then out of your converter to you tv. the converter box should have buttons for out and in now remember that pal signal is going in to your converter (it should automatically selected it) but you would probly have to select the signal that is going out of the convert and the signal going out is ntsc so make sure u select out signal to be NTSC. hope i could help
