Hi all. I have a lot of dvd-r PAL .img and .iso files on my HD and I'm wanting to back it up to DVDs. I'm from the states, so all the equipment will be ntsc.
Here's the setup I plan to have (I don't have the tv yet):
Toshiba regza 42" lcd. It can receive PC input up to 1080 resolution via HDMI input (DVI=>HDMI)
I plan to play the PAL movies from my laptop.
I've heard that playing the PAL .img or .iso files through VLC media player shouldn't be a problem. Correct?
However, if I were to burn them as a proper DVD using ImgBurn, will I run into problems using the laptop and NTSC tv combo?
I've tried burning a PAL DVD to test it out and it seems to play fine on my laptop screen, but I don't know if I'll run into problems when hooked up to the TV via DVI=>HDMI.
BTW, I read somewhere that you have to set your computer to either play only ntsc or pal dvds and you couldn't have both. I never set anything on my laptop, and it played the PAL dvd fine. Am I missing something?
