You could invest in a PAL converter for VHS players.

That's the downfall of vhs. You cant trick your player into thinkin its ntsc.
you need the voltage converter to view it on a ntsc TV.

buy a mulitsystem vcr



Cheaper route

I'll do it, if it's just 1 tape.

I'm using a JVC HR-S7965EK to play PAL tapes.
And then one of two methods to convert to NTSC in hardware.

Or I could just make a PAL DVD, that works too.
