W.K.Jones - The review on High Def Digest; it gave it a real kicking. I think they were a little too tough on the Canal release, just as Blu were a bit too easy on it.

Are there any hacks available for my new Sony BDP-S570, which by the way is BRILLIANT, just need to be able to play all discs

I see on that a USA import of the film "Mother and child" on Blu-ray can be ordered. On it is Region 1, on no region mentioned. What does this mean? Anyone know?

Check with www. to see if they can help.

Region A is Region 1 ?
Why would a BD be orderable in the UK from the USA if it's not region-free? For people with a multiregionplayer?
I don't even know if my Sony is such one.
Thanks for all replies. Most appreciated.

Yes, you need a Multi-region BD player, some Sonys can be adapted but it costs around £150 sterling.

Mr Ernie Marsh
Reference my 13Oct 16:07 BST Panasonic Have just replied confirming exactly what you said NTSC on HDMI & SCART INTO TV RECEIVER. I had asked them before posting my enquiry. RE: DVD's multi region from
totally useless outfit. Ordered on system into basket and paid debit visa.
Hickup they said. Could be I enetered wrong digit or maybe big number should
not have been grouped in four. Whatever. In FIVE long weeks and numerous
E-mails to which they did not reply I had to give up. So Dr Richard Kimble has to
continue running (THE FUGITIVE - David Janssen) BE WARNED I'm still checking
my statements. Andruid

I think it is for a sizeable number of expat or temporarily expat Americans on secondment in the UK who bring their goods & chattels with them.

Hi Thanks for tyour response, but I think I went to an older one of yours.
Is there a remote control which will make my Zone B (Australia/UK) Sony Blu-ray BDP-S550 region free?

I got a Tevion 1100UKT player from Aldi, which plays regions A,B & C Blu Ray and is region free for DVD (using handset codes). Around £100. Yes it's an unknown brand name, but other than that and a fairly slow boot up, the machine is as good as any other (bearing in mind these far eastern sourced players are made by the same people who make top name overpriced western brands).

Don't think it's still available but there are similar players under other brand names that have the same or similar hardware and firmware and are region free. Just avoid the big names and you can find decent region free players.
