    Two questions given that I know nothing about DVD recordable:

    Can the Philips machine play multi region DVDs?
    Can recorded DVDs be played on standard DVD players?

    Hi, Alan
    Yes with a remote hack most dealers will do this for you on purchase. DVD+R and DVD+WR compatibility is down to the DVD player that is playing the recorded disc but the +WR and +R format is supposedly the most compatible. Most of the new DVD players should play them.

    Thanks Graham, so my Pioneer 545 will be OK, but any ideas about my much older Sony 725?

    The site http://www.dvdplusrw.org/ maintains a list of compatible players allthough it's not exhaustive.

    See here .

    Looks like there are 3 versions of the Sony 725 of which only the DVD S 725P will play both DVD+RW and DVD+R media. The other 2 will play one or the other.

    BTW, the dvdplusrw.org site also has good and well visited forums, one of which is just for +RW recorders which basically means just Philips models at the moment.

    Michael.

    Thanks Michael, that is a very good site you have suggested. Been reading some of your other thread contributions about DVD+R and DVD-R, and I am with you, it has to be the +. Think I will go ahead and get the 890.
