my LVW-5115GHC+ was on Ebay advertised as "All Region".
When I got it, was a bit upset, because on the box it says "Region 1". After I hooked it up, inserted a PAL DVD ( I've got one which has both, one side NTSC the other PAL). It worked. Just for fun did a search on the net and found of course this Forum.
Did try as well the 2960 Trick. And to my surprise, the Recorder was set to Region 1. So, it played PAL in Region 1.
Then I changed it to Region 0 and recorded an NTSC Tape to DVD.
Then played it back on a Panasonic Combo (Tape and DVD). It worked fine although it says in the Panasonic Instructions '...Discs which cannot be played...with Region NO. other than "1" or "ALL" '
I do really wonder what Region it does record though. :doh:
Is there anyone out there who had to set it to a specific Region just to watch a different DVD? :rolleyes:
