I have a PAL VCR and was thinking of purchasing tapes (VHS) from France. Are most PAL VCRs capable of playing SECAM tapes. My VCR does say PAL/SECAM.
If your VCR says PAL/SECAM, you're fine on that front.
But is your TV accepting SECAM? and even if it does, you have to make sure you watch your VCR through the Scart and not the RF (which probably won't recognise Secam, it doesn't even recognise Euro PAL if it's british).
Or you watch it in B&W :
