I'm looking for a new DVD/Blu-ray player, but as I have a Samsung TV from the USA, I need something that can output a NTSC signal and handle PAL and NTSC discs. I thought that HDMI signals were independent of PAL/NSTC, but almost ran into problems with my Freeview receiver as it initially did not work on my TV (default was PAL, but luckily it had a NSTC output option). Region coding is no problem as my discs are region free. I know Oppo make a player that fits the bill, but I'm not willing to pay $1300 (max budget of $400). Can anyone advise on a suitable player?
