I am really new at this, and old, but I have recently purchased several dvd's abroad that are PAL and in the US we use NTSC. Since I am a neophyte in this area I have read everything I can but, frankly, most of it is above me. Did I mention I am old, as dirt? Unfortunately, I do still work and don't have lots of time or knowledge to sit and try various programs that I still cannot make heads or tails out of. Anyway, other than purchasing Nero and begging for a step by step process, is there any other program that I can try? Do I need to memorize the frame rates for the different signals or will the programs talk in plain english? I have a new ATSC TV that plays everything, unfortunately, my other tv is HD but not atsc. Thank you. You guys and gals are brilliant.
