Imported PS3 can play PAL DVDs via Linux


Well-known Member
Title pretty much says it all. I was fiddling around with my Fedora install yesterday, since I had all the Xine libs installed anyway thought I would give a PAL DVD a go. Sure enough, it worked perfectly, looked very good as well :thumbsup:

This guide will get you sorted:

Superb stuff. I assume this makes it region free? Now if only Sony would release a patch to make the upscaling better.......

Will a US PS3 play a region free PAL DVD out the box?
