Question about Kenwood KVT-817DVD DVD/CD/MP3/WMA 7" Motorized In-dash Monitor With 5.1ch DSP Car Video Player

2 Answers

There is a Sound but can't see the image of a DVD

I bought a KVT 819, from the US, (i'm in Australia) as far as i know the screen only accepts NTSC images. Australia has PAL. I was aware of that but i didn't think i was going to have a problem with burnt DVDs. I can hear the sound of the movie, but i can't see the images, this is driving me crazy!!! i didn't put it in the car yet, it's just on my table, maybe i forgot something??? The ignition weire and the yellow wire(12V) are together. is this bad? i don't get any messages saying that the car is in motion and cannot see video, or something like that. Any Ideas?

NTSC and PAL are DVD Formats data formats, like CAD and WMA. You need to NTSC to PAL converter to convert the video before you burn it, its a long process and you may lose noticeable quality. My neighbor does this with NTSC videos he d/ls of the net. Search the net you may find a conveter(software) for you. And a fast computer would help, he has a dual core 2 and it still takees a bit of time.

Well i bought a game called 2k8 basketball here in philippines, but i bought my xbox on australia, then i tryed my game and it said, ( The disc's region code is incorrect for this consol ) so how can i...


Sorry you can't fix it. Most games are Region specific meaning that they are playable only on Xbox 360 systems from the specific region that you have. If you bought your Xbox 360 in Australia then it is likely PAL system and can only play Pal games.

"Determine whether the game disc is from the same region as the region where you purchased the Xbox console. To determine the region, view the back of the game package. Look for one of the following codes:

* NTSC: North America and South America (United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, and Brazil)
* NTSC-J: Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan)
* PAL: Europe, South Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand"

If the game you have doesn't match with your Xbox 360 Region then you won't be able to play it. (but a few games are playable on multiple regions, check list below)

Check out this site prior to buying games to help identify which games that aren't PAL might be still playable on your system.: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-00-3-xbox360_compatibility_guide-49-en-84-t.html

Notice that NBA 2K8 US version is not compatible with PAL system. If you had bought the US version of NBA 2K9 then it would have worked.

Will the dvp 311ok play ntsc dvd i am in australia and i am reg 4


As long as the NTSC DVDs are not region coded, and your TV is multi-standard (able to receive NTSC as well as PAL signals via A/V inputs or similar connections), the player should play NTSC just fine through it

I assume this is a PHILIPS player? If so, most PHILIPS DVD players support NTSC playback on PAL TV.

You are correct, Australia is region 4 for DVD standard. The only restriction would be region codes.

My ps2 which is NTSC/J couldn't accept PAL CDs. how can i make it accept any CD for playstation?


You would need to either mod your PS2 or get Swap Magic to play PAL PS2 games on an NTSC console. Unfortunately even if you got the game to work, the screen would be jumpy and almost unplayable unless the game has a 60Hz option (there are not many with this option at all). Most PAL PS2 games are 50Hz to be compatible with European televisions, and NTSC games are 60Hz to be compatible with American and Japanese televisions.

No, the American Ps2 game will not load on Australian one because in Australia the TV system mode is PAL and the in America its NTSC standard.You can't load any game until your Ps2 is modded.You can buy a modulator than can convert PAL to NTSC and vice versa.

How can I set my FLM-2632 to accept Pal-N?


The only way you can do this is if where you are going there is available a box or adapter for Pal to NTSC--I have talked to several people who had this problem and this is the only solution.

It is available in some places but not others.

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 or ntsc


Hey abinanth,

NTSC and PAL refer to two different analog TV broadcasting standards. In North America and Japan, PS2's and other electronic devices generally are sold in the NTSC format only, as that is the standard used in those parts of the world. PAL devices, on the other hand, are primarily used in Europe, Australia and portions of Asia.

While NTSC and PAL do share some similar properties, images are not displayed the same way on a TV screen with both formats. What this means for the average consumer is that in order to ensure that a PS2 will work with their TV, it will probably need to be purchased in the format used in their home country.

Please keep in mind that while NTSC-to-PAL/PAL-to-NTSC adaptors do exist, many electronic devices (including PS2's) are still subject to regional lockouts that prevent the use of any media/discs that were not purchased in the same region of the world.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Pal/ntsc


PAL is the European lines of resolution, NTSC is a stateside. In nutshell PAL has more lines of resolution but won't work in the states unless you have a screen that will accept both.
