Whats up with this. if the DVD came from the UK I cant play it in the USA.. can i get around this or am i screwed out of 230 bux with useless dvds that i mine as well use as coasters??
USA DVDs are NTSC format and Region 1. UK DVDs are PAL format Region 2. You will have either get a Region 2 (or multi-region) PAL capable DVD player or you may be able to modify your DVD player to be "region free." The mod is usually a simple but secret "back door" setting with your remote. Try going to VideoHelp.com and looking in the "DVD Hacks" section.
Buy a $24 LG DVD-RW drive. It will come with PowerDVD. Install it in your PC, insert the disk, let the drive change to region 2. You will be able to play Farscape in that drive, as well as any other videos you buy from amazon.uk.
