    I am using a Plextor M402U USB capture unit with Intervideo WinDVD Creator to caputre in MPEG2. In the setup there are 3 different settings for NTSC - They are NTSC M, NTSC M_J, and NTSC 433. Anybody know what the difference is between the three? They all seem to work fine to capture video but I was wondering if there is a big difference between the three.

    Thanks
    Bob

    I suppose they are just different ways that NTSC Video is Transmited, In North America you are supposed to use NTSC_M....

    Would that be the same with the PAL (pal_b, pal_l etc)?
