Hi guys, hope u can help me...I own a Samsung HTDS 400 Home theatre and was bough in Europe and declared to support Region 2 DVD Media. The thing is that I would like to buy a movie - currently issued only in US on Region 1 media. The thing is that until just a few days ago I hadn't had the chance to test my home theatre with a Region 1 disk and when I got one from my friend I put it in and it worked (the dvd player owns a PAL-NTSC converter). The disk is Jim Hensons Storyteller and it has a RCE protection which as you may know, shows itself as region-free to trick multiregion players. Here's additional info on the disk
R1 - Will only play on North American Region 1 or multi-region DVD players.
Please Note: Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE): has been added by Warner and Columbia to certain Region 1 DVDâ€™s. RCE will prevent the DVD from playing on some â€œMulti-Regionâ€ DVD players. If you are in any doubt that your player may not be able to play RCE DVDâ€™s, we recommend that you do not order this title, as we are unable to accept returned RCE DVDâ€™s.
So I guess my qestion is does this mean that my player is actually a multi-region RCE compliant player if it can play this disk?
