Thanks a bunch to all of you regarding the info - and to those who will bring some more info - yes my TV
is rather new, all systems - all regions compatible - any voltage as well (!), has surround sound etc... and plays any VHS video in PAL, NTSC or SECAM formats but for the DVD I have to have two seperate players...
Why in hell did (SONY is the brand of all that) made it so convenient for the VVHS, but did not think about the problems if playing DVD... strange...
Again, thanks a million to all of you
