    I have a Panasonic DVD player and will be moving to the US. I know the regions are different and want to know whether I can take it with me to the US. Will it work in the US? It's the Multi-region DVD-XV10 super slimline with silver front (very cute:blush: ).
    :lease:

    Hi travel8102

    Welcome to the forum - I am moving your post to the DVD Players forum as you are more likely to get the answer you want there...

    hey travel.
    Well if your player in multiregion you won't have to worrie about disc regions. i.e. 1,2,3
    But
    You may have to buy a power tranformer as they have a different votage
    and you should check if the player outputs ntsc and if it does pal to ntsc conversion so you can watch your pal dvd's on a us telly.
    It will tell you this in the manual.

    So if it outputs NTSC you will be able to watch Us dvd's on a us telly.
    If it does Ntsc to pal conversion and not stand alone NTSC you can't
    If it does Pal to NTSC the you can watch us and uk dvd on a us telly.
    And if it does Both Pal And NTSC you can do it all.

    hope that helps.
    Sorry if i waffeled on a bit!

    Most likely it'll play back raw ntsc for ntsc discs but less likely is the PAL to ntsc conversion.
