PAL DVD Plays in XBOX360 & Blu-Ray Player

I have a wedding project that involves both NTSC and PAL (Germany).  This is my first experience with PAL.  I exported in both formats (Premiere CS5) and everything seems to work great.  I tried the PAL disc in my XBOX360 and my Insignia Blu-Ray player and it works on both of them?! 


I need to send the drafts to Germany but I wonder if they're really in PAL format.  The display in Encore's Project Settings seem to indicate that I'm indeed burning in PAL (the "Television Standard" button has a grayed out PAL selection). 


I'd hate to waste the time and expense of mailing these to Germany if they aren't going to work.  I'd appreciate any knowledge/experience on this topic.

    Can I ask what makes you think they are not in PAL?

    However, X-Box is different, and most Blu-Ray players seem ignorant of the difference as they all upscale output these days to 1920x1080.

    Insignia is also quite a well-known make internally - the electronics are from someone very well known.
