A few years back (2007), I did some tests on my equipment.
The PAL signal is a true PAL signal, played out from a JVC HR-S7965EK S-VHS VCR, as produced for the European market and manufactured in Germany. The power supply inside these machines is switchable, so I merely need a power cord shape adapter, and it works fine in the USA.
The signal was viewed on an ATI All In Wonder Radeon AGP 7200 card, via s-video connections. Only s-video was attempted, not composite. Mostly because the VCR only has s-video and SCART, no composite or USA-compatible coax.
- SIGNVIDEO / STUDIO 1 DETAILER "IMAGE ENHANCER" - WORKS!
- DATAVIDEO TBC-1000 TIMEBASE CORRECTOR - WORKS!
- ELITE VIDEO BVP-4 PLUS PROC AMP - WORKS!
- AVT-8710 TIMEBASE CORRECTOR - WORKS!
And there you go.
From what I've heard from SignVideo, the current model PA-100 does NOT work with PAL. However, some older models did. There's a member currently looking for one in the Marketplace forum: http://www.digitalFAQ.com/forum/show...-pal-2485.html
