Comment:        RE: SHK 14.0809 Re: All Region DVD Players

I'm pretty sure the issue is the DVD player, not the TV itself. I have a
"code-free" DVD player (bought off the internet) which plays British
DVDs perfectly well on my American television.

I'm NOT sure, though, that an ordinary British DVD player (not
code-free) would work with an American television, or vice-versa. I
think that code-free players are modified to eliminate this
incompatibility.

Anyway, a good online DVD seller should explain all the coding and
PALS/NTSC issues, and should provide full information on any player
before you buy.
