Hey everybody, a cousin of mine is a serious film nut, and there are a lot of foreign discs he would really like to get his hands on. Since Christmas is coming up, I was thinking about getting him a region free DVD player, but I really don't know much about them, so I'm looking for advice on a few issues: 1. I know a lot of common players can be "hacked" with codes. Is this effective? 2. What would be some good players to look at, and some reputable (probably online) retaillers? 3. Will any PAL discs even play on normal TVs, or do they still have to be NTSC? 4. Any other issues I should consider? Thanks!
