    I was wondering, on some receivers it says at the video Specification part:
    "Video
    Television Format: NTSC" (for example marantz, hk)
    What that means? Can't I use the video entrances and exits runing PAL movies and tv? Let say I watch a movie on DVD (on pal format) the DVD is connected to TV by the receiver would it work?
    Would the on screen menu will work?

    It works for me. I switch a PAL VCR and a PAL DVD player through the video section of my receiver (Denon AVR-3600), and it works perfectly - never had any trouble.

    As far as the "Television Format: NTSC" thing, that probably just means that the receiver's own onscreen menu is output as NTSC, which would be normal in an NTSC country.
