Default Why can't i copy a region 0 dvd to vhs

sponsored links
When i try to copy a region 0 dvd to vhs i get good audio but the picture has some kind of interferance (three or four white lines across the screen)
A region 2 dvd copys fine
My dvd player is multiregion and macro free
My tv is pal and ntsc
I have tried changing the settings on the tv and dvd player but always get the white lines.
Is this a ntsc problem with the vcr (i have tried 2 vcrs)
Is it but the vcrs will play ntsc but will not record ntsc ???
Any ideas or as anybody copied a region 0 dvd to vhs ok???

I think you've guest it, when your recording an NTSC DVD onto a PAL Video recorder you have to set the video ouput on your DVD player to PAL or PAL 50 this will then allow the video recorder to record correctly. (The only draw back is the quality is'nt quite as good)

You can buy a video recorder that can record NTSC but the cheapest i've seen these are about £350.

Again there is hardware you can buy to down convert to pal but again they are pricey.

if you can try to set the dvd player to output in pal (not quasi-pal or pal 60hz).if it has the option to output in pal only then your recordings should be fine,what dvd player do you have?.
hope it helps.
ps the wharfedale m5 can output as pal 50hz and costs between £100-£150,so if your player can't output at pal 50hz then it's cheaper to buy a new dvd player than a convertor box or multi standard vcr.
