    99.99% of DVD players sold in Australia can output pure NTSC if the DVD is NTSC

    they output pure Pal if the DVD is Pal

    they can output Pseudo Pal if an NTSC DVD is played and the DVD player setup menu is set to output Pseudo Pal (not recommended unless user does not have a multi-standard TV)

    none of these DVD players can be used as standards converter

    Many UK DVD players can be set to output genuine standard NTSC, standard PAL, or some full or partial conversion between the two (PAL60, NTSC4.43 etc).

    There are, of course, much easier ways of getting a DVD into a PC. Assuming you have the content owner's permission to do this.

    Cheers,
    David.

    Wikipedia is your friend... most days at least.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macrovision
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PAL

    So PAL uses 4.43 carrier, while NTSC uses 3.58 carrier. Most PAL devices that "play NTSC" do so by generating NTSC 4.43, which is not true NTSC. It'll play back on a PAL display because it's "close enough" to standard PAL (and the display usually has some tolerance).

    A true NTSC signal, however, will not play on a strict PAL-only display.

    What of signal from a Video converter? Would you see/count this as either “pseudo-PAL or NTSC”?

    And kindly enlightened me on what you mean by Microvision protection.

    Thanks

    Don't forget to power down the unit before you switch to NTSC, because that will also cause rolling.

    Using a genuine NTSC player will work fine. Just remember that you won't be able to capture anything that has Macrovision protection.

    Dear GrassValley_KH,
    thanks for your reply.

    I've read the FAQ as suggested.
    So ADVC110 outputs a PURE NTSC signal ( which can only comes with a NTSC DVD PLAYER and not a PAL PLAYER ) am i right?

    So if i were to invest in such a player, would FCP Pro 5.0.1HD be able to "accept the incomming signals "? If i set to DV NTSC Projects?

    PLease advice.
    CHeers!
    Darence

    ADVC110 can accept either PAL or NTSC input, provided that the source device is outputting a true PAL or NTSC signal. A PAL DVD player outputting NTSC is not acceptable - it's the wrong type of signal. Have a read of the ADVC FAQs in the Known Issues forum for ADVCs. It'll explain further what is happening.

    ADVC110 - NTSC input

    Hi!
    I have a ADVC110 and i think it can accept NTSC inputs ( from DVD )
    Tried to use it with my Final Cut Pro and PAL seems to work fine.
    Tried to meddle the settings at the bottom of the device to accept NTSC inputs. But the images i am capturing is black and white and seems to be "scrolling" up and down with lots of lines.

    Any advice?
    Have i got the correct device to capture NTSC inputs?
Working...
