    So, I happened to pop in a PAL DVD the other day and to my surprise it

    Is this just a fluke or have other people been able to play PAL DVDs on
    Toshiba equipment?

    both NTSC and PAL DVDs.

    support. That's like 7 different DVD players altogether.

    My SD-1700 (purchased in 1999), unfortunately, plays only NTSC R1 DVDs. :-(
