    hi

    I have recently bought a DVD playback kit which claims to support both region 1 and 2. I plugged it in to my Xbox and put a region 1 disk in - played no problem. I then put a region 2 disk in and it told me it was the wrong region.
    Then i stopped being dumb :oops: and realised that there was a switch on the remote sensor which toggled between region 1 and 2. I switched it over to Region 2 and got a message saying my playback kit was invalid. I have since found out that the xbox locks to the first region you use on it and as such i can't watch any DVD's due to them all being region 2. Is there a way i can reset my box to play region 2 only or am i stuck with Region 1 forever.

    Also whats this Region X all about and does it work as this may be my only option

    thanks
