Hey Boom...welcome to ATS


Just to let you know that my dad is a TV engineer and he says that it is almost impossible to unlock regions unless you have the codes to the microchip that deals with the regional settings!

I think the best thing would be to just search the net for sites that deal with TV/Video/DVD faults.

Or...next time..get a multi-region?

Oh, by the way...where you from....i'll ask around at work and try and get back with info?

Hi Gryffen, i'm from York (UK). North Yorkhire.

I thought that the answer you gave me was the only one I'd get, but hey, thats life...!

It's for my little brother I've bought him a DVD player and he got some DVD's from the US and they don't play.

He thinks I've got him a dodgy player...!

Hey Boom

The problem is simple!

America is Region One..while we are Region 2

You do get Multiplayers which play both and i think the best make is either Sony or Sanyo.

If your looking for a Multiplayer, go to this site and you'll get them at good prices:

Comet

amazon


They are the best places to go and hope this helps!

Slow down, I have nothing against americans, at all. Very nice place, very nice people. Been a few time, love it. I just thought that this was a site used by a lot of americans. Thats why I used it to enquire about the DVD's and regions.

i was suprised to see some body was from Scotland. Maybe I'm ignorant, I've never used a chat site before, I'm new to all this.

Sory if I have offended anybody, my sincere appologies.

Appology completely accepted, sorry for coming off so harsh today, it must be the new moon... It just struck me with the thumbs down, that we were going to have another anit-American on here.

I see that you are new here...Welcome to ATS.

actually, google your model of DVD player and dig through all the hits. also search google groups. my DVD player had a secret option built in to unlock all region codes. it wasn't in the manual anywhere, but I searched my model online and it came up. good luck!
