    Now that I have bougt a new PJ want to set it up properly

    Im using a region 2 player with Pal into a TW100

    Will this CD be suitable or is just for NTSC?

    As far as I know, AVIA and other calibration discs are all Region 0 so it should play in your R2 player. However, it is NTSC encoded and as such is only suitable for calibrating NTSC settings, not PAL. We are currently without a proper PAL calibration disc but future releases such as "The Calibrator" and "DVD Video Essentials PAL" will remedy this.

    :).

    So are you saying that there in little point in buying this then.

    If so how about the Ultimate DVD Platinum.

    Will you only be watching R2 PAL discs?

    If so, then don't buy any of the calibration discs, even DVD Platinum as they are all encoded in NTSC.
