Question about Philips DVDR3435V/37 DVD Recorder/VCR
Unit plays PAL DVD and VHS but output sygnal has the same format. Another models (642, 5982) give output sygnal in NTSC. How to set conversion from PAL to NTSC?
Thanks for attention and help.

This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:
1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.
