    Which is the best version to get, R1 or R2?

    Not really fussed about extras to be honest.

    I've noticed the region 2 version is not 5.1, is the Region 1 the same?

    Will I get charged import duty if I buy the R1?

    Thanks

    Series 1 didnt have 5.1 on either region, dont think the extra's are different either.

    There is a bit of extra footage on the R2, i cant remember what it is though.

    Id say go for the R2

    The Region 2 and 4 releases have 90 seconds more footage than the Region 1 release so they are the ones to go for.

    Having watched some of 24 season one region2 in addition to the region1 I had, I must say I'm very surprised that the region 2/PAL was superior, as I think it was a us video sourced series??

    In the past I tried the region1/NTSC via TheaterTek software DVD and alternatively an X-card/PDI/HOLO3D(Faroudja DCDi) at 60Hz scaled to 1440x960 on a 7ft screen.

    The PAL copy showed surprisingly slightly less deinterlacing artefacts. The scene where Jack is given his mission brief had a wicker pattern behind the actors which looked reasonably smooth on region2, whereas I remember it aliasing badly in the region1 release.

    Perhaps 24 was filmed on high-def or film stock??

    cheers,
    Rob.
