    I have a silly question, how do multi-region DVD players work if the DVDs from other regions are PAL and I live in a NTSC country?

    You have to make sure you buy a player that is not only multi-region (in other words, it doesn't recognize the region coding on the DVD), but that will also convert the PAL format to NTSC.
    The Malata player, available at www.avdeals.com , does such conversion and seems to be very popular.

    are there players that output both PAL and NTSC? if i have a display device that is capable of both, that would be useful.
