Dave, I want a DVD player that plays PAL DVDs on a regular NTSC TV. My dear brother bought me a Philips dvp642; we popped in a DVD he had bought me from amazon.de and it wouldn’t work. Somebody had mentioned a cyberhome dvd player they had gotten at Fry’s for around $50, but it doesn’t seem to exist. How can I make the present DVD player work or do I need extra parts or a different TV. Help!!
