    Can anyone confirm that a multi region Panny E85 will definitely play American region 1 discs?
    I have heard that the Panasonic range of DVD Recorders are ALL region 2 players or non regional.

    Yes they will - however they are not that slick at it. To play a Region 1 disc you have to goto a menu and select NTSC.

    The MR will definitely play Region One, I watched Live Aid region one last night on one>

    Just beaten to it - but no need to go to menu to change to NTSC, it just plays it !

    why do they put people off with this region 2 boloney, is it cause they don't want to support it if someone manages to fnd a region 1 disc that doesn't play?

    or is it for some legal reason?

    DVD players and recorders are region coded to the area in which they are sold to satisfy Hollywood, i.e. region 2 Europe, including France, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Arabia, Japan and South Africa, region 1 United States of America, Canada etc:
