US HD-DVD's will play on UK players. I bought the UK version of Batman, and a few other Warner titles. They have an FBI warning at the start, so its just a US disc re-packaged in a UK skin.

I am looking to buy a couple of Region 1 hd dvd's off ebay this is what the seller says and will not refund for incompatibility issues:

"BRAND NEW AND GENUINE REGION 1 HIGH DEFINITION DVD, WHICH WILL ONLY PLAY ON TOSHIBA HD DVD PLAYERS!!!!

THIS ALSO PLAYS ON THE XBOX 360 HD DRIVE!

Please do not buy unless you have or are getting an american HD DVD PLAYER"

Can someone confirm these will play on a Toshiba HDE1.....

cheeers

To confirm something here:

HD-DVDs have NO region coding as of yet. HD-DVDs will work on any HD-DVD player from anywhere in the world.

It is only when you try to play an SD-DVD on a HD-DVD player, when the region coding kicks in.

So the guy on Ebay is most likely selling dodgy copies, as he is talking crap on several fronts there.

You can buy HD-DVDs from the US and they WILL work.

Greg,
thanks for the feedback....the ebay seller has got very good feedback so it's a case of maybe the seller doesn't really know......
