    Hello peeps,

    Heres my dilemma, a Panny TX32PD30 set with Pal / NTSC progressive and a Panny SCHT870 DVD cinema box with NTSC progressive output only. Is it really worth buying region 1 discs so i can get a progressive signal or is it worth just sticking with region 2?
    Is a "native" NTSC signal not as good as PAL anyways due to less lines?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Stuey :)

    It is definately worth getting region 1 (and 3 and 4). Whether you prefer PAL or NTSC is up to you, it is not as clear cut as which is better - They both have +s and -s

    The difference in the number of lines is not a major issue. More important is mastering of the disc.

    I had a R2 copy of "Dead Ringers". I replaced it with a R1 as he PQ was vastly superior because of the care taken with sourcing and mastering.

    Plus if you buy a lot of dvd's you aren't stuck with just uk releases, you can buy from anywhere which can in some cases save money :smashin: .
    And buy early.
