Jim and John,
I am 100% sure that Hong Kong uses PAL B but we'll be watching it in her laptop (Of course, i'm going to bring mine but the movie is for her) The Philippines uses NTSC
OK... I think the 1st link I posted mentions that "most-or-maybe-all" PAL boxes will also play NTSC... but using a software player you should be OK
