PAL Capability I have just bought a new Toshiba REGZA 37RV530U LCD HDTV along with a Sony Bravia HDX500/i home theater system. Can either the dvd player on the HDX500 or the Toshiba tv display PAL dvds/signals? If not, is there anything I can do to allow either of them to do this? Cheers.

    I have just bought a new Toshiba REGZA 37RV530U LCD HDTV along with a Sony Bravia HDX500/i home theater system. Can either the dvd player on the HDX500/i or the Toshiba HDTV display PAL dvds/signals? If not, is there anything I can do to enable either of them to do this?



    I also have my original LG PAL dvd/vcr from Australia, which I was using until this problem occurred. Is there any way I can get it to convert the PAL signal into NTSC in order for it to successfully display on the Toshiba HDTV?



    It would appear that the problem is simply one of finding a way to either convert the Toshiba HDTV from NTSC to display a PAL signal, or the PAL signal into NTSC to show on the NTSC tv. Given the models I've mentioned, is this possible? And if so, how? I mistakenly assumed that the newest of HDTVs would automatically be able to display both formats. As I may have to return this item for exchange very shortly, your timely assistance is greatly appreciated



    Cheers,

    All I have is an original PAL Xbox hooked up to my PAL LG dvd/vcr (both from Oz), then the dvd/vcr hooked up to my Sony BRAVIA HDX500/i HTS. This connects directly to the Toshiba REGZA 37RV530U 1080p HDTV. Before this setup (minus the Toshiba) was hooked up to an older Samsung tv with no problems. Do you need any other info to assist you?

    g'day mattozan, I've purchased the Mayflash PAL to NTSC converter from Sewell Direct as you suggested, so we'll see how that goes...

    In the meantime, is there any way I can get the dvd player on my Sony BRAVIA DAV-HDX500i Home Theater System to play PAL discs and make it region-free?

    Cheers

    This converter will get you from NTSC to PAL. But it sounds like you really need the opposite.

    This converter will go both ways (NTSC <-> PAL, plus more).

    It's not cheap, though. USD$180

    The conversion can't be done just with adapter cables alone. It is a true signal conversion, requiring a processor box.

    You're right in assuming that newer TVs can process this signal conversion themselves. But I guess your Toshiba is one that does not...

    Sewell Direct has an PAL -> NTSC box for much less. I'd get that and see if the output quality is satisfactory. If not, you might consider the other professional-grade converter.

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.

Toshiba HDTV + SONY PLAYSTATION 3 + SONY Home Theatre DAVHDX265


I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!
