    OK, since the Toshiba player prices are coming down at the moment i'm thinking of going for a 420 but i need it to output Pal 50 for use with an old tv. I'm currently using a Cyberhome which can do this fine on my tv but before buying the Toshiba i'd just like to confirm that it will work ok. I've done a search finding differing opinions about Pal 50 and Pal 60 as to which the Toshiba outputs NTSC discs as.

    I've got this player and can vouch for its quality as a source. I posted a thread on this subject ages ago and the result was that it DOES output PAL 50 according to this site:

    http://www.dvdmagic.net/t420.html

    If you do a search in the forums for Toshiba sd420e the thread'll come up, I started it and posted most recently so you should be able to find it, can't remember how to link to it though, sorry!

    Unfortunately I havn't got the manual to hand so can't check this out properly for you.

    Hope this helps

    John

    Thanks, just wanted to make sure it was Pal 50 for sure. This means i can use it with an old tv i have plus my Toshiba RPTV which accepts component input.
