Okay, I guess I have two questions. First, what is the best program to use to convert a dvd from PAL to NTSC. I have used convertxtodvd, vob blanker and nero. Is one better than the others? It seems like it is hit and miss with actually getting the conversion to work. i know when i have done it some times the final (ntsc) product still will not play in my dvd player. Second, is there a noticeable loss in quality in doing the conversion?
