Good Afternoon!

I have a Philips VR530/16 VCR which is supposed to play both PAL and NTSC tapes. PAL tapes play great, but NTSC tapes just have this gray static on the screen. There is audio on NTSC tapes. Any idea why it's having issues with NTSC tapes?

Thank you!

If you are playing back a NTSC tape why PAL is selected in the video you posted?

It still outputs in PAL right? Although I tried it on an NTSC TV with no luck either, but I can try using the capture card as NTSC.

I have read the german manual from the philips 530vcr and found this.

NTSC Playback:
Cassettes in the NTSC color television standard are recorded (e.g. American tapes) can be played on this VCR.
Playback only works with PAL TVs that have a frame rate of 60 Hz are suitable.

Your vcr can't play real NTSC.

Two questions - are you sure that's the /16 version, and if so I'm kind of confused what that means. It says NTSC can be played on PAL TVs right?

No, What it means is your capture card can't capture PAL 60. You need a true NTSC VCR or true multi-standard VCR labeled 525/626 or a capture card that accepts PAL60 but with a slight loss due to signal conversion.
This has been discussed here already.
