    Needed to know if you can change the region of your dvd player manually i.e. set it to region 1 ...will this mean that it will play R.C.E. discs or are there any exceptions to this rule.Apologies if I am over-simplifying this assumption? Any help much appreciated!

    As far as I know, if you can manually put the player to a specific region, it will play any RCE disc. I've not heard (so far!) of a manual region change failing to beat RCE.

    Yes, from what I have read in magazines and on forums like this, any manual region selection will get past RCE.

    Also nice to see a third member from Derry.

    I have a Sony CX850 that I bought from Linkonline well over a year ago. It only has manual switching, I have never had any problems with any discs (yet)

    Yes, one and the same - so ignore my comment about a third person from Derry - back to 2 again.
