NTSC AND PAL TROUBLES

I bought a new Panasonic DMR-E75V DVD Video Recorder, I chose it specifically because the people at the shop assured me it would playback in both PAL and NTSC. Only now do I discover that only the DVD will play NTSC.The video only plays in PAL. This is potentially a massive waste of cash as the main reason I got it was so I could copy all my old home videos onto DVD. My old, analog camcorder is NTSC,and I need to copy all the tapes I've made of my kids to DVD to send to my in-laws in Japan. I can watch NTSC VHS through the new player but there's a black band at the bottom of the screen.. I still have my old NTSC/PAL VCR. Would it be possible to hook it up to the new machine and record to DVD from it? I half feel like just taking a hammer to the bloody thing right now.

What I use. My best tool is an Artec DVD+R/W recorder. I can use the resulting DVD on the PC for editing or such. For digitising on the PC, my best tool is the 49USD Hauppauge TV PCI card. As to your sound issue, if it's the same USB device I used a few years ago, it tortured me to get the latest video driver, sound card driver and directx before it would work. I also connected the audio to the line-in.

DVDs are encoded in NTSC or PAL but not both it seems. And you will run into band issues as you transcode from one format to the other. On the surface it seems the store did a poor job of education.

Need to find a manual for remote eur7721x10

Since the EUR7721x10 remote shipped with specific Panasonic DVD/VCR units, the manual for the DVD/VCR recorder may give you the information that you need. One of the models is the DMR-E75V. Panasonic has the manual on the product support page: http://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/DMR-E75VS.html?supportpage=true . The direct link to the manual is http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRE75V.PDF . The remote buttons are described on page 6; the TV codes are given on page 17. (Note: these codes will probably only work on TVs that are older then the programming in the remote.)

I do not know of any available manuals for the remote that are separate from the DVD/VCR Recorder manual. I hope this helps.

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).

Panasonic dvd player

On your original remote which came with the unit itself, just try pressing the button which changes the video output from PAL to NTSC or from NTSC to PAL, which would be supported by your TV.. You can look for buttons like P-scan, I/P, N/P....
