    Can anybody else with a Panny HS2 try this to see if it happens with them?

    Tonight I started to watch Signs - a R1 DVD, after roughly 10 minutes the wife said she was going to miss coronation street so I stopped the DVD playback and set the DVD Recorder recording to the HDD.
    I then switched back to DVD but when I pressed play I was given the error - "Cannot Play This Disc - Incompatible TV Setting".
    I went to the Setup menu and changed the TV system from PAL to NTSC and the DVD played fine, but the recording on the HDD was all funny due to the NTSC setting.
    I then switched it back to PAL and tried the same thing with a R2 DVD and all was fine.

    So can I not record to the HDD and watch a R1 movie at the same time?

    No, you can play and record at the same time, but both have to be ntsc or pal to allow it. You can't play an ntsc dvd and record from a pal source or vice versa at the same time.
