    I am intreseted in buying the R1 superbit version of Das Boot and The Fifth Element , but not sure if the RCE protection is a problem for many DVD players. I also heard that there was a new version of RCE out has anyone come across it.

    I have a multi-region Toshiba SD220. Would I have any problems playing R1 superbit titles.

    many thanks

    it shouldn't have any problems

    it tends to be the remote hacked players that have problems with RCE

    Hi

    I can confirm that a hacked SD-220 has no problems with RCE.

    Superbit DVD's use the maximum amount of space on the disc purely for the audio and video of the main feature. Extras (if there are any) are on a seperate disc.

    They usually include a high bitrate DTS track as well.

    "According to Columbia Tristar, by reallocating space on the disc normally used for value-added content (like director's commentaries, documentaries and the like) and multiple audio streams, Superbit DVDs can be encoded at double their normal bit rate while offering full compatibility with the existing DVD Video format. The result is picture quality that provides outstanding detail which complements the performance of the latest progressive scan DVD Video players."

    Although it is meant to be superior on all dvd players.
