Keep in mind that a PVR-150 sold in North America (the US and Canada, at
least...don't know about Mexico) will have an NTSC tuner, while a PVR-150 sold
in Europe will have a PAL tuner. If you only intend to use the composite or
S-video input (with a cable box or satellite receiver serving as the tuner), it
doesn't matter which card you buy...the rest of the capture hardware on the
board is multisystem-capable. (I've used a multisystem VCR and an Avermedia
M179 bought off the shelf at Fry's to capture PAL videocassettes so I could
convert them to NTSC and burn them to DVD.) If you intend to record broadcast
TV or plug directly into the local cable-TV system, though, you need whichever
card type is appropriate for your location. An NTSC tuner won't pick up PAL
broadcasts, and vice versa.
