Converting up to 1080

I bought player relying on it being able to convert regular dvds to 1080 dvds, I don't think it is converting up to 1080. How can I be sure it is?

Re: Converting up to 1080

Hello. You have to use the HDMI port and connect to the HDMI, or DVI, port on the back of the TV to get 1080. Even if playing HDDVD, this cable is necessary to get the increase. That, and the TV has to be in 1080 too. If you look at the display, on the front of the player, while watching the DVD, it will tell you at what resolution the DVD is playing. The HDMI to HDMI/DVI must be installed to get the increase in resolution. I have a Panasonic HD 34" 1080i widescreen TV, with DVI connection. When connected, the player played my DVD's at 1080i on my TV, while at only 480i thru the composite cables.

On some older movies or series(I like Star Trek- TNG), it doesn't work well due to the transfer to the DVD. Most newer DVD's, such as Batman Begins (there is an HD out, but I have DVD only), improved on the upconvert for me nicely.

We want to convert our US DVDs to work in a UK "LG" DVD player.

Rather than converting all your DVDs, it may be better to find a DVD player which will play both kinds of DVDs, NTSC and PAL. They are available. If you do want to convert the discs, probably a video conversion service would handle that but it would cost you for each disc, probably $10 each and they may not convert any commercial DVDs. These services are usually available locally or you can mail off the DVDs to one in large metro areas.,or.&fp=89e96c95c947f3f0

Of course you need the dual power, 110V for USA and 220V for UK.

Converting Toshiba HD E1 DVD player to codefree

Hey! It is possible to convert your Toshiba HD E1 DVD player to region free. But you need some DVD Copy software to help you remove the region code first and then burn it on a new DVD disc. Thus you can play it on your DVD player. I recommend you use this DVD Copy which is very esay-to-use.
If you want to watch your DVDs on PC or some portable palyer, you can use some DVD Ripping Software which can remove CSS protection from DVD and convert DVDs to video palyable on PC. You can have a try of this DVD Ripper.
Hope that helps.

Converting Movies To Play On My Home Dvd Player

Convert video to .avi or DVD (Audio TS- Video VS) format.
Many common dvd players can play .avi files
(.avi files are very compact).
All dvd players play TS/VS format.
AVS4U is a reasonably priced (approx $50)downloadable suite of programs that can perform all the conversion tasks you need for audio & video.

I want to convert an avi extension video file to wmv

"will converting an avi extension file to wmv make it work on a dvd player??"

No, a DVD player uses .VOB files

"I have a Philips GoGear SA 3020 and it only supports wmv files. Can I somehow convert an avi extension to wmv?"

Your device is only 2GB so it won't hold a lot of video content but wmv files are generally smaller then .avi.

Go to

That will give you a place to start. Have fun :)

PAL to NTSC conversion

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.
