    Hi, I'm in a bit of a quandry, and I'd like to get some advice from you
    guys. I have just gotten introduced to the Buffy tv series, and I'm loving
    it. I have a modded
    X-box hooked up to a 16x9 HDTV using a region free progressive scan DVD
    software. What I have read on the internet indicates to me that Season 4
    and up have been released in Region 2/4 in anamorphic widescreen whereas
    it's regular 4:3 in Region 1. Since playing the PAL dvd's won't be a
    problem for me, I have a question: Should I order the PAL widescreen dvd's
    over the NTSC 4:3's. I just want to know if the image quality will make up
    for the sound speed issues when playing PAL disks. Or if there's a way
    using my receiver to fix the sound problems (Pioneer Dolby digital EX
    supported, but the model # escapes me at the moment). Thanks in advance!
