I have a zinwell/dse one that taunts me with the output system option in the menu, and it changes the menu but as soon as the onscreen graphics go away it reverts to PAL.

Emailed and told it was by design that it did that. What a stupid design decision but anyway, it didnt do it on the SBS channels when I had them setup on it so I am assuming its something with the transmission to force it to PAL, not the box.

Does anyone have any of the el-cheapos off tradme, and can you confirm if it will do NTSC on the composite out without issues? Proper NTSC, not 50Hz or anything daft.

Im asking since I have a small LCD with a 2.4GHz reciver in it that only does NTSC, and I want to be able to carry TV around the house, and also run the freeview into the quad splitter that does my cameras which are all NTSC and the quad splitter cant handle different standards on different inputs.

Maybe get a cheap PAL to NTSC converter to stick on the output? Save you getting a new unit. Also may do a better job than the inbox converter.

Quality doesnt really matter, its a crap handheald "baby monitor" that I recieve it on. keen on not adding yet another power sucking box and wallwart to the mix, winter power bill is really hurting :(

have in the past tried asking trademe sellers but it seems that they know less about their products then I do from just looking at the picture of it.
