    Hi people,
    Long time lurker first time poster. I have a Panasonic S75 EBS player and i have just ordered Clerks anniversary edition on region 1 disc. My player supports NTSC progressive scan so do you think this will play ok?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Cheers
    Mikey

    As long as your DVD player is multi-region or region 1 enabled then it should play.

    You will need to check your TV can also accept NTSC playback

    Thanks Astaroth,
    Not sure if my tv will recieve NTSC. I know it accepts 60hz from my consoles, dont know if this is relevant.

    I think the S75 can do Pal 60 for NTSC, if it doesn't play the disc try these for a chipped remote

    Cheers for the site Ged,
    Ill try the disc when it arrives, if it doesn't work i'll try the remote option.

    Was your player made multi-region before you bought it?

    If not then it doesnt matter if your player can handle an NTSC picture or not as the player will refuse to run the disc as region coding has nothing to do with picture format and in order to run discs from other regions you need to get the player hacked or chipped.
