    Replying to my own thread...how sad.

    Anyway, thought i'd share what i'd found while searching, Amazon has it inc postage for £57 which i ordered, then in true style i found it on special at DVDcrave at £40...so i canceled the amazon one and went with that. Its under boxsets.

    Cya,
    Lee

    Glad you found it at such a good price. Do they have that Customs agreement thing, where you're guaranteed not to pay import duty?

    Just got mine through, was marked as a gift and i didn't get taxed...chose the cheapest mail option, which took 12 days.

    YMMV....but i've had a few bits from them and not been taxed

    My mistake - my wife told me a package arrived that had been taxed. I assumed it was Xfiles, it turned out to be my Avia Home Theatre DVD that i'd ordered from amazon. Think she ended up paying around 9 squid in total for it. Which i thought was a bit steep considering it was a single DVD worth about $45.

    So i'm still eagerly awaiting my Xfiles box set (and Advance Wars 2) which should arrive in the same order.


    Fingers crossed - hope they slip through the net

    Cheers and sorry for the confusion

    Should have bought Avia from Piero!!! £25 delivered, no chance of it getting stung either.

    Thankfully after setting up my TV in NTSC, seems pretty much perfect in PAL.

    What TV's/PJ's support seperate brightness/contrast/colour settings for PAL AND NTSC? Rather than one for both? If black level is different between PAL & NTSC (and I think it is) then contrast & brightness would be off on one format.
