Which leads me to ask, for those of us 'States-side;' are VCR's
available in the US that play in PAL mode?  I have a number of videos I
bought in the UK, before realizing my machine couldn't play them on my
machine...

Related to that, it is my understanding that the resolution of image in
PAL format is different, and can result in some fuzzy play-back on some
machines.  Anybody have experience with this?

Thanks,
Andy White
