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

The set should at least light up on the screen and have noise when you turn the sound up---yes, if a North American made set it will be NTSC format and I think your system is PAL, you would likely have no audio and a black and white image at best.
Hi tomblasio BluRay is the latest video technology on the market and has nothing to do with NTSC DVD HQ . First came VHS , followed by VCD ( video cd ) and later DVD ( digital video disc ) . NTSC is the standard manufacturer's technology in use mainly in the States and Japan . Europe generally uses PAL system . Bluray discs produce superior image quality and offer 5x more stockage capacity than the dvd discs . They are also the far more expensive than other products . DVD and BluRay are NOT compatible .

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.
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).
