Just pondering... Aren't all DVDs from movie sources mastered as effectively 24P - i.e. 24 frames per second? Then the output (NTSC/PAL) is created by the DVD player. If so, wouldn't it be possible in theory for a PAL DVD player to actually output NTSC discs as proper PAL? This would get rid of 3:2 pulldown problems. My subject mentions progressive mainly because those players actively dissect and then recreate the 3:2 pulldown on NTSC discs, so they are potentially more capable of real PAL conversion?
