    having recently moved from the uk to the states i purchased an arcam dv78 dvd player for my sony ntsc kde-37xs955 plasma tv

    the dvd salesman convinced me that the system will play both region 1 and 2 type dvds

    i programmed the dvd player to automatically recognise and play both us and uk dvds thru the handset hack (eject, 1111, 13)

    the US dvds play perfectly, but when i try to play any of my UK dvds i get a flickering screen

    what am i doing wrong? how can i stop the flickering and watch both region 1 and 2 dvds?

    thanks

    This is definitely a problem with your television not accepting the PAL signals from the DVD player. Go into the setup menu and change the PAL/NTSC setting from 'Auto' to 'NTSC'
