    Can anybody point me to a good DVD guide/article on DVD Players/Discs, as I'm a bit confussed over certain issues regarding regions, progressive scan, PAL/NTSC etc.

    eg. How can you find out what region a DVD is besides whats on the packing.
    How can you find out what region a DVD player is set to.
    Is a region 1 DVD allways NTSC and why does it play on my PAL TV?
    What is progressive scan?

    etc etc etc

    This all started when I bought a packaged marked DVD "Region 1 NTSC" and it plays on every DVD player that I've tried even though 3 of them are supposed to be Region 2 only???

    Any pointers would be helpful.
