Hi janak911, Region coding is how Hollywood studios stagger dvd movie releases across the planet. These codes ensure that one country doesn't get a DVD movie before the same movie is out in that country's theatres. In their corporate omniscience, movie studios have carved the planet into regions with each region having a specific code.

All DVD players and discs have region codes. A DVD player and disc must be of the same region or the disc will not play.

If you want to watch movies from other countries, you need a multiregion DVD player. This will allow you to play any disc from any region. However, because TV standards differ, you might need a specialized NTSC/SECAM/PAL TV or a DVD player that can output any signal to the standard your TV accepts.hope u get the point.have a nice time.

Does my JVC HR-XVC33U have a disc burner or a reader only?


Greetings Lightfingers - Your unit is only capable of viewing DVDs and has no capability for burning DVD's

If you would like to burn DVDs you can buy a burner for a PC for about $20-25 USD at a place like newegg.com.

Regards and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Hi i was after a no region code for a dvd player!!!


To unlock the DVD code its defends upon what region you belongs or from were you bought the DVD unit. Just click this site to hack the region code ; http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

To keep it simple, this means that DVD players and DVDs are labeled for operation on within a specific geographical region in the world. For example, the U.S. is in region 1. This means that all DVD players sold in the U.S. are made to region 1 specifications. As a result, region 1 players can only play region 1 discs. That's right, the DVDs themselves are encoded for a specific region. On the back of each DVD package, you will a find a region number (1 thru 6).
The geographical regions are as follows:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs


Hope it may help you;

DVD Player Hack code


Hello, I realize this is a bit late to get back to you on your request for help.

You may be way past the need for this. But, changing the region you live in on a DVD Player so you can play new DVDs or view a friends DVD is not a hack. The international copyright laws recognize you or your friend have already paid for the right to view these anytime, anywhere you want to do so.

The problem with a Sony DVD player in the modern era is that they will not play PAL encoded DVDs. PAL is an encoding spec. used in the EU and mostly anywhere outside the US.

You could take your DVD player to an authorized service center in the EU and tell them you want your PAL decoder enabled and Sony has to grant you this right. Its actually addressed as "Unlocking the Region Code." Sony has told all authorized repair center to comply with this request.

What it breaks down to is this in the law, International and US: When you purchase a Movie DVD yoiu have purchased the right to view the disc for as long as you want to until the DVD is no longer playable and even then you could get a replacement. No outside agency, Sony in this case, has the right to inhibit your rights.

Hope this helps empower your understanding of copyright laws.

What is a region code 2 dvd player


Most of the DVDs available in India mostly use Region 2, Region 4 and Region 5 codes, all together in one DVD.

Education on region dvd codes:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

If you want something on the cheaper side try a Philips DVP5982 Multi-Region DVD Player.

hope that helps!
