I hope I am in the right place with my question here...
I am using ADS DVD Xpress and have captured using CapWiz 3.1. and 3.5. hours and hours in PAL DVD Format in excellent quality and without any major problems. (PAL, DVD 9mb/sec, SOurce and Output set to PAL) For this, I play PAL VHS Tapes on a so-called multisystem VCR (aiwa FX3800). (I say so-called because it won't play "real" NTSC on a PAL TV, but rather PAL-60)
However, I have serious problems when trying to capture a NTSC-VHS Tape using the exact same settings. The output is either only black and white, or it will randomly show some color with heavy flickering. Both source and output are set to NTSC. Experimenting with different data bit rates and video formats doesn't help very much. Switching from CBR to VBR brings randomly some color in, not permanently. I know that a multisystem (PAL native-) VCR has to work harder to play a NTSC VHS Tape , but is there something else I'm missing here or is my only option to try to get a native NTSC system here in Europe?
Thank you for your help!
