    Anyone had any issues with Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE) that they put in big red letters at the top nof Playusa.com?

    I have an Arcam DV79, I've done my multi-region hack (1 1 1 1 1 3) and it plays R1 discs I have, but is the RCE and different?

    Cheers,

    Jon

    Did you look on the PlayUSA FAQ's it explains what RCE is there.

    Its also worth noting that not all disks that Play mark as RCE are RCE encoded - the only disk I've had any trouble with is chitty chitty bang bang (its a MGM disk), which refused to play unless I select the second chapter. So if you take the plunge and get what you think is a RCE encoded disk it might not be - I'd check elsewhere first.

    Check the arcam forums for the hacks because as well as the 'auto region' setting you can also hack to any region specifically thus defeating RCE.
    Although I have a DV78 set to auto region and it plays all my RCE dvd's fine, so I wouldn't worry.

    You should check the DVD talk website as they have a lot of information about RCE encoding and have a list of currently known RCE titles and some helpful hints and advice
