I had an interesting question this morning, and I gave what I thought
was the correct information, but I would like confirmation from the
gurus on the list. The question was whether DVDs, in addition to
having
region codes (1 for USA/Canada, etc.) also had the problems with PAL
vs.
NTSC going from say, a regionless DVD player to a PAL TV in northern
Europe. I said that, yes, all these things would have to be overcome
to
play a US disc successfully in Europe. Was I right?
Thanks for any advice.
