Hey LauraJPL,

Because PAL-format and Region 2 DVD's are primarily used in Europe, they generally will not be sold through Best Buy™ stores located within the United States or Canada. While U.S. and Canadian stores may sell some multi-region or region-free DVD's, the vast majority of the titles offered will be Region 1 NTSC-format discs.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

I just bought a series of movies from the UK and found out about this whole regions thing. I have a Sylvania sdvd4101c an do can't figure out how to unlock it. Help!


Your trouble may not end at the region of the DVD player. There's the issue of format. There is NTSC (USA), PAL (UK) and a lesser used SECAM format. These are NOT interchangeable unless the player supports it. See this link for more:

What is the difference between PAL NTSC and SECAM

Many players can have the region changed. Most however, are computer drives. Home audio equipment can be tricky - and you might want to have a look here first:

Some players allow you to make several changes and that's all, or allow you to set to "Region Free" (which is ideal).

Philips dvd 3445h doesn't seem to support pal format


You would have to either convert the DVDs to NTSC by ripping them to your computer and using conversion software, or you need to get a player that supports PAL and NTSC. Phillips has players that do both NTSC and PAL but it sounds like the one you have doesn't.
I have a Phillips DVP 5140 that does PAL and NTSC and is region unlocked.
There are other players on the market that do support it, but you will have to look around a bit.

Best of luck

Only black and white


If you are playing different region dvds, they can be of different color formats also
(US = NTSC, Europe = PAL). If your television is not multi-format then non-compatible
DVDs will play black and white. The solution is to purchase a mutli-format TV (accepts
both PAL and NTSC formats)

Multi regional DVD player?


Hi,

To my knowledge, yes it is. The Panasonic NV-VP32 will play all DVDs.

However, to be able to view multi region DVDs (PAL/NTSC), the Panasonic NV-VP32 must be connected to a multi system TV (capable of both PAL/NTSC).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

HI,
it depends on whether the drive is multi-region ?
Some drives are region Set, i.e Region 1 ( NTSC-USA )
Region 2 ( UK PAL )
Most Players Are Region Set, To the country they are purchased in, you can sometimes set the player to become, multi-region, via various buttons on the remote or by the front panel.
I offer a service to unlock 99% of DVD Players, to play all or many regions.
We do have a charge for this Service.
Many Thanks mike @ Compurepair.
