    Ever so slightly off topic, but here's a puzzler which I couldnt rationalise but here goes...

    ...For Xmas last year, i bought my old man a specialist aviation DVD disc which I watched on his CRT television and cheapo DVD player, and all was fine and dandy. At the time, I also had an CRT telly and a Samsung DVD player but when I played the disc, all hell broke loose - as I got B/W output and a rolling screen, vertical hold-like image making it unwatchable.

    I was changing DVD players and changing to a Panny PW7 plasma within weeks so left if for a while....

    Tried my 'new' (a s/hand) Panny DVD player on my Sony CRT telly before I got rid of it, expecting it to be a DVD player issue, but heck no...still got same problem, and then tried a week later on my new Panny plasma and I still ended up with the same result! The disc still plays fine on my Dad's setup though...

    what the fudge is going on? None makes sense to me!

    I could be wrong (most probably) but sounds like the disc is playing in NTSC and either the DVD players or the screens can't cope properly with it or just need to have a setting changed to accept NTSC ??

    Once again before I get flamed...I could be wrong as its a bit of a wild guess :)
