    Most players in the US can't. And if they could, the TV set wouldn't.

    Actually, most US players CAN output raw PAL, it's just an undocumented feature. 99% of our TVs cannot handle PAL tho.

    Jeff, actually it has NOT been my experience that most US players will output PAL. My old roommate had a front projector and I bought a region 0 PAL disc (a music program DVD). Both my Panasonic and his Sony refused to play the disc (it gave a message that some something like 'This DVD is incompatible with this player'. Neither player would even TRY to play the disc, but it played fine on my unmodded PC DVD-ROM drive. I ended up having to buy a region free player to make the PAL output work (but I wanted one anyway, so it wasn't that big of a deal). But it is possible that some of the brands now support it.
