I have a shop and we received our UK Xbox POD this afternoon so I've brought the machine home to play (I already have a US one). First good news is the 60hz option is indeed in the dashboard so no more borders (as long as you have a scart TV). Also I've tried the US DVD kit and it works fine so I'd also assume the UK kit should work with US machine. Just about to try my US Hi-def kit (component) to make sure that's okay but I don't have PS right now so I can't try that.. Wanna know anything..?? feel free to ask.. Shame it came with a crappy demo disc though..
