usa hd/dvd combo question


Active Member
i got 300 dvd/hd combo..

one side is hd..the other dvd..

it's region 1 so the dvd side won't play on my uk xbox..
i'm getting the hd addon next week..will i still be able to play the hd side as i think hd-dvd's are region free?

Hi There,

HD-DVD is region free, Blu-ray is technicaly locked to one of three regions, although i don't think it is manditory as it is in the DVD standard, hence so far a lot of blu-rays also happen to be region free.

Its kind of odd having the HD version unprotected and the standard def protected...Seems a little backwards somehow.
