NTSC to PAL

I live in Ireland and want to purchase a DVD recorder that I can convert my NTSC VHS videos to DVD PAL. I don't know what to purchase and can't find anything locally. I am in urgent need of this as I have terminal cancer and I want to convert all my sons tapes from when he was a baby to give to him. Any advice would be appreciated.

If you are already having the Samsung SV5000 VCR, it is a Systems Convertor model.Play your VHS Tapes on it, select System Conversion NTSC to PAL, and take Video out of the VCR and feed it into a DVD recorder. plenty available. For europe, I recommend Philips DVD recorders.

You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US). The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder. Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example: Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want You can go to this link to view other product: http://audiovisual.kelkoo.co.uk/b/a/sbs/100304323/16875665.html My father died of cancer 6 years ago and I am also transferring the Hi-8 videos to digital format using PC.

Can i convert at PAL video with this machine?

The version of the ZV427MG9 sold in the U.S. only supports NTSC video files. Thus it won't play a PAL VHS tape.

If you find a similar version sold in Europe, that would probably play PAL videos. However, if you used the tape to DVD dubbing feature, the DVD would still have the PAL format. I'm not even sure that a video capture device with video conversion software on a computer would do what you want to do.

I wish that I had better news for you.

(The video would also matter. If you are trying to convert a commercial video (ex: a movie) to DVD, the dubbing feature doesn't work due to copy protection.)

I need transform my samsung ht-tz212 to region free

First, in order to do what you're trying to do, you would need a device hack, a series of commands that break into the device's firmware in order to change the region code. This is possible for some players but pointless as the region code is only half the problem and if you unlocked it you would have to change the region code every time you used different Region Code DVD's and you can only do it a maximum of five times before the DVD player becomes a brick. Sites that offer region hack codes don't mention this fact or the more important issue of incompatible analog standards and it is very important to understand. It doesn't matter whether or not you hack your US DVD player's region code, it broadcasts (transmits) the NTSC analog standard to the television which displays the NTSC standard. All other countries outside of North America broadcast using the PAL analog standard and the two standards are not compatible. Non North American DVD's are recorded in the NTSC analog (look at the back of any DVD and you'll see near the bottom it will say NTSC) and Non North American DVD's are recorded in PAL. Region Codes are only security features built in by the studios to control international distribution that block media from being played, not from being displayed and have ZERO to do with the analog standard of a particular country. The media, player and the display must all have the same analog standard and your television does not support the PAL if you live in North America standard so region code changes don't solve that problem (and vice versa if you lived outside of North America). To do what you're suggesting, you would not only have to crack the region code but you would have to use a converter to change the format of your R2 discs from PAL to NTSC. Your integrated DVD player does not have this capability and few do. The only option that you would have would be to purchase a true multi region universal player that has built-in converters to convert from PAL to NTSC.

I just bought and set up the vhs to dvd program but when i coppied the video onto the disc and tried to play ti in the dvd player it said disc error.i made sure i followed the hook up directions.help!

You have either used a disc that is not compatible with your dvd player, or used the wrong file system for the dvd and/or format, have not finalized the dvd recording.
If you use a dvd-r for recording, the disc has to be finalized, regions use different formats of video(UK=PAL, USA=NTSC)
The easiest way to use your disc would be to convert the video to avi format(xvid divx mp4/3) and burn to a disc as data format.
Download ANY VIDEO CONVERTER FREE,
and ASHAMPOO BURNING STUDIO6 FREE .
Use the converter to change the video to avi, use the studio to burn the video as a data disc, you can get up to 14hours per standard dvd(28 hrs on a dual layer). Put the disc in and it will play as a DivX dvd.

Converting NTSC home Video tapes to Pal DVD or NTSC DVD

You need either an NTSC DVD recorder (keep in mind that the US has 110 voltage, while Australia does not), or a computer card that supports NTSC. Some video capture cards support both NTSC and PAL (often switchable). Choose good quality, and pay attention to video/sound sync - some bad quality cards loose sync. Once the tapes are transferred to DVD - and keep it native NTSC all the way, they can be played on virtually any PAL DVD player/TV combo. With an NTSC source, it's best NOT to convert to PAL, while with a PAL source in the US, you'd need to convert to NTSC or only show the DVD on a computer (where NTSC/PAL doesn't matter).

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.

Convert NTSC VHS video tapes to DVD PAL

If you do not have an adaptor to play the tapes to a standard VHS viseo player, you can use the camera as the player by connecting the AV out to a DVD recorder. There are hundreds of models in the market, and do not worry if it is NTSC or PAL because 99% of DVD recorder accepts both.
