I live in India. My Sony TRV95E PAL purchased from Europe has gone out of order. I have a few Hi8 tapes to be digitized - I have started looking for a compatible SONY model (one with DATA CODE feature and play Hi8 - some D8 models are backward compatible). I find a few in the US ebay and amazon and can manage to get one with help from my friends.
However I want to ensure that SONY NTSC models can play PAL tapes. (I once had a PAL VCR that can playback NTSC and guess the same would be true for some NTSC camcorder models). I checked the manuals for a couple of NTSC models but there is no mention of whether they support PAL playback.
Can someone confirm if there are SONY NTSC models that support PAL playback? If they don't support PAL, then I'll have to start looking at the UK markets.

Thanks hech54. This model of mine could play NTSC too.
I'll start looking to get a compatible PAL model one from Europe.
