"Region-Free" DVD Players Can't Post

I'm interested in viewing DVDs of both NTSC & PAL formats...I found this Web site that features so-called "Region-Free" DVD players, that can play DVDs of NTSC & PAL, like the Phillips DVP5140:

http://www.hometechanswers.com/codefreedvd/philips-dvp5140.html

However, a colleague warned me that I also needed an
HDTV TV, with built-in NTSC & PAL capability, even though I'd have one of these Region-Free DVD players...

Is that the case? I hope not, because I only have a non-digital TV set, though with a digital converter....

Thanks for any clarifications!

Have you tried to see if anyone has hacked region code for your current brand/model DVD player?Cool

It's a Sony DVP-NS425P...

BTW, I'm finding out that you DON'T need an HDTV to view PAL-format DVDs on a multi-region (which is how I should have termed in in the first place) DVD player....
