    I am considering a Malata/JVC (w/mod) for PAL/NTSC conversion. I am concerned with the reports of poor video deinterlacing of the mediamatics chipset. How does this relate to video based PAL DVDs?

    Jeff,

    I thought South Park was video, so it is 30 frames per second. It shouldn't suffer from the speedup if it is video because they will convert the frame rate to 25 frames per second.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    So, how does this work (NTSC film to PAL video back to NTSC again).

    If the original is 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

    Then is the PAL version 1-2-3-4-5-7-8 (delete every 6th frame to get to 25fps)

    Then the Malata converts back to 1-2-3-4-5-5-7-8 (or even worse, randomly to something like 1-2-3-3-4-5-7-8)?

    Or is there something else going on that is less artifact-ish?

    Obviously, this would be less noticable with something like South Park.
