    Well I'm sure that your impending global success (better get a PAL version out quick :D) will eliminate the domain fee problem. :lol3

    Did some research on the PAL issue.

    It turns out that my wise and gifted with foresight partner set the country code to "0", which (should) allow it to be played in any type of DVD player.

    So, you Euro's should be good to go... if not, I'll give a refund.

    The paypal issue is still pending. Not for lack of trying, but some folks are still getting the evasive "country" issue, and we haven't found a smoking gun yet. We're working on it!

    :lol3

    Some updates:

    1) I've spent a bunch of time trying to track down the paypal "country unspecified" issue, with no success. Neither paypal nor I can recreate it. I really apologize for the trouble it has caused.

    To get to the bottom of it, I need to be able to recreate the problem. If someone who has the problem is willing to help me with this, I'd love to give you a T-shirt for your effort. Shoot me an email at ned AT motopeak DOT com.

    2) I'll add a 2XL shirt size to the website this afternoon. I'm working my way back through orders emailing everyone who asked for a XL if they'd prefer a 2XL if available, since it wasn't an option at the time. Going forward, it should be easy to order from the site (once updates happen in a few hours).

    3) The first pre-release versions of the DVD have arrived (only a few, so they won't be used to fill orders)! Yahoo!

    We're donating a few of them to Westfest as door prizes, so any of YFF's in attendance may have the chance to be the first on your block (by about 2 days :lol3). In addition, we're going to send a few out to folks who helped with clinics and so on... the real deal will be along soon, and all orders placed will go out immediately upon having inventory.

    I have a paypal order that is 'pending' due to the country issue. Was able to get through with a regular card, though. Hopefully, you'll catch the extra order...

    Looks great, thanks! :clap

    Ned:

    PAL and regional coding are two different things. Region code 0 means it can be played in any region and the Neduro movie studio doesn't care to control which of it's movies are played in what part of the globe.

    PAL is the encoding format. In North America our TVs and DVDs are NTSC, so your DVD will be NTSC.

    Your dvd will NOT play in PAL DVD players, unless the dvd player is a multi format DVD player, as most Europeans tend to have multi system dvd players. Your NTSC format DVD player will also play in any computer's DVD-ROM drive, so our European friends who are unable to watch it on their DVD player can watch it on their computer.

    If Europe is anything like here, if you buy one of those super cheap Chinese made dvd players that cost around $30, those DVD players play both PAL and NTSC discs (on the fly, just insert any format dvd, and it plays it), as well as everything else: MP3 discs, jpeg photo discs, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc...

    Bottom line for our European friends: If Ned's DVD doesn't play in your DVD player, it will play on any PC with a DVD-ROM drive. :thumb

    Shows what I know! Thanks, GB, for the clarification. The offer to refund for any Euro who has trouble playing it stands.

    Also, an update re: paypal. We've found a patch/ update that may, potentially, fix the problem. Many thanks to the folks who have emailed offering to help.

    As soon as we're sure we have it fixed, I'll post back here. In the meantime, credit cards are (and have been) working.

    I ordered a couple days ago and am excited about the DVD! One thing though, when I ordered I thought it said it would email me an invoice, but as of now I have not received anything in the inbox.
    Was this a mistake or will an email be coming once you have DVD's to send out and start processing orders?

    Thanks

    I got two confirmations from MotoPeak - a welcome email after signing up and my invoice copy.

    Might want to check your junk mail folder, to see if it got diverted by either your ISP or your email software :dunno

    What he said. The invoices are automated, and that might lead them into a spam trap from time to time.

    Paypal issues appear to be resolved! :clap Many thanks to the folks that helped me work through that, and many more thanks to those who were patient as we got it fixed.

    Hey Ned,
    I'm just wondering how long the DVD is?
    It's probably listed somewhere, but I didn't see it.:dunno

    Actually, I'm not sure it is listed anywhere.

    The total length is about 50 minutes. The main portion, which includes 9 chapters on riding techniques, including drills and examples, is about 30 minutes. I was amazed at how much information fits in that time- we cover significantly more those sections than I do in my clinics which take all day!

    There is also a garage portion, which includes a tire change, suspension setup, and an overview of setup and preparing for trailside repairs.

    And finally, we also threw on a little gratuitous riding, just for the joy of it. :ricky
