Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

1 Answer

Is this DVD player multi region?

Hi we have a Magnavox MDVD300 and have lost the manual. As we are in Australia which is region 4 I am wondering if i buy a dvd from the US (region1) or the UK (region2) could this player play it ok? Unfortunately the movie the kids want is no longer available here so before i pay the extra to get it shipped i want to be sure they can watch it. Hope you can help! :0) Thanks Lisa

Sorry I was not able to find information specifically about the MDVD300 but the MDVD302 does not support region free play so, I don't believe the MDVD300 will either. Hope this helps in some way.

What region is the DVD player that comes with the new TEAC TV that I bought? I can't find the info on the manual or the internet. Please help. I live in Australia. Thanks.


It depends if the DVD player is separate to the TV or built into it. Assuming the DVD is a separate unit, it must be region 4 for Australia, unless specified otherwise (on the player's rear panel or in the operation manual). The only types of DVD players/recorders allowable in Australia are region 4, and multi-region. If the player plays region 4 DVDs, but not other regions, there's your answer. A model number and/or brand of the DVD player would help.

I was just wondering if Magnavox Dvd/VCr combo MWR20V6 is a multi-region dvd player?


all dvd players are region free when you first buy them, they set the region themselves, after 5 dvd's have been played on them. So if you had a european dvd player and played 5 USA dvd's on it , it would lock to the USA region and you would be unable to play european dvd's on it. Exactly what a friend did many years ago when he bought a load of american dvd films from someone and played them on his brand spanking new dvd player :)

Hi Scotty,
I have some bad news for you, this player is preset to region 1 and it cannot be changed, here is an extract from page 7 of the user manual...If you need the manuals email me at [email protected]

DVD video disc region numbers
DVD video discs that have incompatible region
numbers cannot be played on this player. The
region number of the player can be found on
the bottom of this unit and this manual (refer
to Specifications on page 113).

Region code lock out


You can only change this code 5 times before it locks out the CD ROM drive. If it's locked out, you will need a new CD ROM drive. Your best bet is to get two external CD ROM drives and set one to region 1 and the other to region 4. This way you don't have to keep buying CD ROM drives. :)

DVD REGION CODE FIXED TO WRONG REGION


You can only do 5 resets of this for the life of the DVD drive.

Instead of resetting it, consider buying a piece of software that lets you disregard region settings, such as AnyDVD (google for it).
