Hello everyone,
I'm moving to Austin area from Europe in a short while, and I'll bring with me a lot of DVDs/BLURAY in PAL format.
I found online some multi-regions/multi-standards players. Expensive, but they look all right. I have no clue if a regular american TVs will work instead.

Anyone with experience in a similar move?
Thanks for any suggestions you may have! .. or if you know a more appropriate thread in the forum

You need a region free player. That's it. I had one back before it became so easy to get foreign films digitally. The PAL/NTSC issue was for analog signals and doesn't apply to DVD and BluRay.

Region-free DVD players are super-cheap at places like Amazon, etc., and Blu-Ray's are region free, soooo...

Is there a local store in Austin where the OP can buy a region-free player? If not, I'll move the thread.

You can usually only buy them online. MAYBE Vulcan Video or I Love Video though (or they can point you in the right direction if not)???
