    No that I have seen and I doubt we will see this either, you need to pick a region and stick with it, supplemented with the additional region free discs like those that have been issued by Paramount and Warner.

    Or buy 2 players.

    I'm not being flippant, that will be a real option for some.

    Example, if you buy a US PS3 and a UK Sammy dual-format player (or vice versa) you're covered for R1 & R2 SD DVDs and RA and RB Blu-ray Discs.

    Oh, and you can play HD DVDs, too. Not a bad set up. And you might be able to pick that up for less tha the cheapest BD player (or for that matter the cheapest DVD player) would have cost you at launch.

    Put a Pioneer 202 (£140) Blu-Ray drive in your PC along with an ATI 2400 (£30) graphics card and play any region you like. You might need powerDVD Ulta (£50) and maybe AnyDVD HD (£15) to play them.

    Less than £250 for multi region!

    (add a Xbox 360 HD-DVD addon at £100 and have multi format, multi region for less than £350)

    assuming you have a pokey modern PC with plenty of memory that is capable of this or a machine that is capable of an upgrade.
