    hi there, I bought my self 'Beatmaster' on DVD. IT says on the back region free. When I try it in my (mult-region) DV88+ I get sound but a blocky unwatchable screen.

    On my computer I can see the DVD fine. Do I need to select something (or input something into my remote) for region free dvd's?

    thanks

    CaM

    it is the only one out of my dvd collection that suffers this problem - but it may well be the only region free dvd I have.

    I'll investigate further I think.

    thanks

    CaM,
    As Matt has said it should work OK if yours is set as 13. I think you can set the player to be region 0 as well as multi region. Certainly region free DVD's play OK on my DV27

    Regards
    John

    Ok, I'll investigate tonight to see whether my player is region 0 or region 13 and report back.

    thanks
