Bogus region coding

Written by Jari Ketola @ 13 Oct 2000 13:52

As suspected, the Regional Code Enhancement (RCE) from Warner Brothers is turning out to be little more than a minor annoyance. In their recent review the DVDFile staff tested The Patriot DVD with a region free player. Indeed, the disc would not play, if the player was set to accept all regions, but worked flawlessly when the player was set to region 1 exclusively -- just as I suspected earlier on.
So if your player is not hardwired to an "all-region" -mode, you can keep buying them region 1 DVDs without worries.
