If a DVD player plays PAL or SECAM, will a NTSC TV display it?

    If a DVD player plays PAL or SECAM media (in addition to NTSC), can it be hooked into and displayed on an NTSC TV?

    Probably that's an oxymoron, but you never know.

    Well yes, it will play NTSC DVDs fine, but since the TV can only play an NTSC signal you will not be able to play a PAL DVD.
