So my in-laws moved into the US with a HUGE collection of VHS tapes - obviously in PAL They did bring in a multi-system VCR (one that can play PAL or NTSC tapes) but didn't realize that they will also need a TV which can display PAL. So now we have two options: 1. Buy a multi-system TV. This will probably be more expensive and less portable. However, image quality won't be bad (unless there is something wrong with the tape). 2. Buy a PAL-NTSC converter. This, I hope, will be a little less expensive. And it does give them the flexibility to view their tapes wherever they want - provided they don't mind moving the VCR and the converter box. But I have heard that these things don't work as advertised. Even after the conversion, it is possible that these things still can't display color. Currently, I am leaning toward the coverter, but the range seems to be HUGE on the web. And frankly, I am not that familiar with the technologies to figure out which converter will do what I want it to - display the PAL tapes playing in the multi-system VCR on an NTSC TV relatively clearly (with color please). So, from the expertise that we have here, I was hoping to find a solution; and also a bargain from some of you that might be out there - I would ideally have liked to spend about $50 on the thing, but would definitely like to keep it under $120. Can I get a converter that will do a decent job in this amount - or should I shell out the big bucks for a new TV (21" PAL TV ~$250 w/shipping). I would greatly appreciate a response. Also, if any of the administrators find this post belongs in another section, please feel free to move it. Thanks.
