There used to be a few decks that offered NTSC playback. Today, it is hard to find a VHS deck in the shops at all, never mind an NTSC compatible unit. JVC was about the best known for the multi standard decks and a search on the internet might just come up with one. Alternatively, some specialist shops may still have them - if you are close enough, Edgeware Road in London has numerous retailers that buy from Europe and the Middle East, where multi standard players are fairly common. If you manage to find one, adding the make and model number to this answer will help others. The other option to consider is to buy a US player (the shipping charges will be largely offset by the lower purchase price). You will need a transformer to supply 110V and also a television that will handle true NTSC. A note of caution: Some UK televisions claim to handle NTSC, but in fact will only display a transcoded signal that results in a PAL signal at US line and frame rates.

What are the specs to look for in a video recorder in the UK that will play American videos?

The TV system for the US is different to that of the UK, which is different to France and so on. Some use the same system but not always. I won't go into technical details, but the differences affect the colour and sound content of the video signal. The US television system uses a system called NTSC where as the PAL system is used over here in the UK. (In France they use SECAM). Basically, look for a UK video recorder that supports NTSC playback (you can get more expensive VCR's that will record in NTSC too!). That's it. The picture quality should be okay, but may be a little poor compared to the UK PAL playback.

Video frame rate?

Video frame rate refers to the number of individual frames or images displayed per second in a video sequence. A standard frame rate for video playback is typically around 24-30 frames per second, although higher frame rates like 60fps are common for smoother motion. Frame rate impacts the perceived smoothness of video playback, with higher frame rates providing more fluid motion.

Is NTSC TV and HD TV the same?

No, they are different things. NTSC is the color encoding process used in North America for standard definition video signals. In Europe, a similar encoding system called PAL is used for standard definition video. HD video is never encoded into a single signal and therefore neither NTSC nor PAL play any part in the transmission of any HD signal.
