I live in the U.S. Here's my overseas/PAL list: Bionic Woman S1 UK R2 Digipak Bionic Woman S2 AU R2/4 HOLOCAUST MINISERIES ITALIAN (ENGLISH AUDIO) R2 HONEY WEST COMPLETE SERIES UK R2 RICH MAN POOR MAN BOOK 1 MINISERIES UK R2 SAINT COMPLETE B/W SERIES UK R2 SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN S2 AU R2/4 I can't detect any PAL speed-up issues with these. All play perfect on my code-free PAL/NTSC Pioneer DV-578A player. They also play the same at a friend's home on a JVC code-free unit. It's interesting that it seems to be a highly-individualized thing with the speed-up detection. I've played some of these sets for others and none have been able to detect it either. The PAL/NTSC technical differences (as well as the ability of what they claim is a small percentage of the population's ability to detect the difference in a 45-50 min DVD) makes for an interesting read at the online Wiki Encylopedia.
