    Ok I bought an Aiwa XD-DV480 about 3 months ago from Richer Sounds.
    "Stop giggling at the back there":D Seriously though I did want the Aiwa :)
    They did the Multi Region upgrade in shop and it works great playing region 1 and the rest.

    The problem is that not being completely up with the buffs when it comes to the know how of home entertainment I was unaware of the dreaded "Regional Coding Enhancement".

    Now I want to purchase the Region 1 Spiderman and guess what, as most you are probabbly aware it's got RCE.

    My question's are these,
    1: does anyone else out there own the same model Aiwa with multi region set and knows whether it will play RCE.
    2: does anyone know where I might find out without having to spend money on a RCE DVD just to see if it will work or not.

    Hope someone can help,

    I have posted this question on five different DVD hardware forums and no one seems to know :(
    After further searching I found this which is the closest thing to a confirmation although I am still not fully convinced.
    Judging by the list, there cannot be that many players that will not play RCE (as long as they're multi-regional of course). Is this because RCE is not as recent as I'd first thought. I was under the impression it came into being last year but it seems that it has been around since 2000 maybe earlier.
    *sigh*
