    It is only multi-region if it has been made so via internal upgrade.

    For example, Sony DVD players sold in your average high street store in the UK are Region 2 only......meaning one of the back of a lorry will also be Region 2 only.

    Only if the lorry wasn't going too fast, the DVD player was well packaged, the drop in height from the lorry was not to high, and the damage was minimal after hitting the ground.

    Offcourse any other meaning to Off the back of a lorry is expressly discouraged.

    Well I don't like it as it encourages crime.

    There is an obvious connection with getting you house burgled/ being robbed and then buying something cheap down the pub "off the back of a lorry / no questions asked"

    Don't do it, or you or I may be the next victim.

    Offcourse it encourages crime and my post was not meant to be anything other than light-hearted. As you say Brox, there is an obvious connection between stolen goods and the term "off the back of a lorry" but nothing has been spelt out or implied so it would be wrong of us to assume the original poster was meaning this.

    At the end of day, he asked a question - I answered it. The Sony is most likely R2 only.

    I had not problem with you answering his question - just wanted to highlight the bigger issue to the poster.

    Oh my God I cannot believe you actually picked up on that "lorry" thing.... How sad are u 2 go on about it... It was just a figure of speech... Jesus Christ.... I have enough money in my bank account to buy what ever I want from a shop and do not appreciate you going on like I am supporting crime or some thing... It was a joke muppet....

    Good day... and thanxx for your answer on my multi region question... The other person is sad and obviosly just sits around all day and nite reading posts and replying with stupid comments like that....

    I found the banter between brox and groundy to be very funny and that they didn't 'Go on about it' as snuffy1 so put it.

    Just my 2 cents. Ignore me.
