[QUOTE=maid;2188943]Hello Sorry to be a newb but I have no idea what bing crosby bob hope movies are.
These are new DVD I bought in Bali.
That explains it…
From the sounds of it, the movies were mastered in PAL format.
Because of PALs greater number of scan lines, when played back on an NTSC analog set, the left side starts where it should, and the rest of the picture looks like it extends some inches to the right of the screen (thus moving images which should be the centre of the of the screen off to the right), if it’ll play at all. Are you getting any sound?
If in you’re playing these on an analog TV, see if you can find any neighbours who have an analog to digital converter (and are willing to let you try it) - that may correct your problem.
If you’re playing these back on a digital, or ready for digital TV, then I’m afraid the only solution will be to have them converted from PAL to NTSC, as they may not be completely DVD compliant. (If they are compliant, they’ll play back fine on either a Digital TV or an analog with an inline digital converter.)
