My non-pro opinion on the subject. I don't need to convert videos but tried this "trick" out of curiosity (and because my father's old TV cannot display european PAL. We have PAL-N, here, which is incompatible with PAL443).

Of course, I can be completely wrong.

BTW, all this debate is well documented here:

I had no such problems. Mind you I only tried it on one show, results may vary later on, but from what I have seen so far, I like this tool.
