Hi, you are partly correct, your region 1 player is also in NTSC format, other regions are in PAL format...... So even if you converted your player to multi region or bought a multi region player it still would not play a PAL disk which the Chinese disks would be! The only way you could do this is to buy a multi region PAL/NTSC format DVD player.
Hi Elizabeth. Not all DVD players are able to be made "multi region". The model numbers of DVD players that are multi region have the same model number as a "home" region player. There is no difference in the appearance of the unit. If it was sold to you by a retailer on the understanding that it could be made a multi region, then I suggest you call them ask ask for the code. Quite often, there is a procedure to follow when converting a DVD player to multi region - along the lines of - place the non region disk in the tray and press buttons X, X and X. I know this doesn't answer your question but I hope it gives you an explanation!
