I was looking at new players online the other day and alot of sites that advertise multiregioned players said that "to play PAL movies your display device must be able to handle a 50hz PAL signal" or words to that effect. I thought nothing more of this until tonight, whilst looking for a new player i noticed machines like the 905sony do not have component outputs and this is a must for me. Thinking back 5 years, which was the last time I bought a region 1 player I remeber the US machines could never be modded for region 2, well they could but only NTSC, so Jap films only. So are the new NTSC machines capable of PAL region 2 now ??? just that they us versions all have component so it would give me a far greater choice than I get here.
