    Please excuse the stupid question... :b

    Does anyone know if the CyberHome portable DVD players have to be hooked up to a PAL tv to watch a PAL disc?
    Or am I right in thinking that it'll only converts NSTC signal into PAL?
    Does the built in screen support PAL?
    If it does support PAL then it would have to be a region free player too, right?
    Otherwise what the point of supporting PAL playback if you could not play region 2 DVD'S? Unless you took your own dvds with you.

    I only ask because I was interested in buying a portable player in the future and saw that the features on the cyberhoime list PAL support and that made me wonder if I could order some dvd's from the uk that are not available over here.
