I purchased the DVD player mentioned above from ebuyer but although it plays region 2 DVDs(UK)it will not play region 1 the DVDs he has from Canada, I found a way to check what region the DVD player is set to and it is set to region 0 which I understand means it is region free so why will it not play the region 1 DVDs?
I checked that and it is set to PAL. I discovered something very strange the region 1 DVD that will not play in the supposedly region free DVD player plays in my Panasonic HD recorder DVD player and my Toshiba DVD player and an old unbranded DVD player that I have lying around none of which to my knowledge are region free weird or what!!!
I did read something about that and could explain why it will not play in the region free DVD player but why then does it play in all my other DVD players which to my knowledge are all region 2. I have only tried the one DVD but will ask my mate to bring over more of his Canadian DVDs to try out.
