Playing PAL formatted DVD?
Hopefully there are some electronic gurus on here that can answer my question.
I want to order a DVD that's PAL formatted (but "region free" so will play worldwide). I already know my DVD recorder won't play it on my TV, but will I be able to watch it on my laptop? I have a CD/DVD drive in the laptop, plus an external DVD/CD writer (operating instructions make no mention of formatting).
Also, if I can play it on the computer, will I then be able to watch the DVD on my TV if I connect the laptop to it?
