Will it work in the UK ?
What should i look out for ?
DVD's sold in USA are region 1 coded. You need a multiregion dvd player or recorder to play them here in the U.K. They will also play in your PC dvd-rom or writer provided the region coding is set to region 1.
Region 1 dvd's can also be purchased online from outlets such as play.com - just switch to the international site from their homepage.
I don't think it would be worth at,
1. no warranty
2. might be only a region 1 player even if they say it's multi-region.
3. electric supply and plug will need to be change.
4. It would have to go in with your suitcases, you know how they get abused!".
Hope that answer's you question?.
Owey, he's talking about a DVD - not a player.
So, yes, if you have a multi-region player (or a PC) then you'll be OK.
It might be worth checking with the original poster, do you mean a DVD Recorder or a recorded DVD disc from the USA ?
Sorry I need glasses, I thought it said "recorder" .
PCs usually limit the number of region changes you can make to a DVD drive.
If you have two DVD drives problem solved.
sorry folks i did mean recorder and bring not brink
If its not worth the hassle tehn I'll not bother, just thought it might save me a few quid...
Knew you were right owey..
...and the NTSC issue?
Pretty much all modern Tvs (providing they have a scart or componenet input, will play NTSC materail.
However If a recorder/player is purchased in the US and then brought into the UK. I am not sure if it would be able to record UK pal broadcasts
I've edited the title
Crazy mad idea.... buy one in the UK....
I must be a mind reader
