Looking to pick up the series Sapphire and Steel for a friend and haven't found any places this side of the pond. The DVD player will play any region DVDs (once I do the hack) so having a reg 2 or 3 DVD won't matter. It also has a built in NTSC and PAL converter so I am covered there. I already found what appears to be a good source for my asian DVDs at [url]www.dvdasian.com[/url].

Have you tried ordering direct from the UK? Try Amazon's UK site.

I had completely forgotten about ebay. Still looking at the overseas shipping though, which is what I was trying to avoid. Guess UK flicks aren't as popular as the asian movies.

Good suggestion! Lots of books for the UK market can be found there that aren't available at Amazon's regular site. Same should be true for DVD's and other media [url]www.amazon.co.uk[/url]

I was just at my eye doctor's office, bi-focal time, and came accross an article in an old Newsweek. Basically, it was about watching foreign films that aren't available in the US on your DVD player when they might be coded differently. They suggested that you try the sites codefreedvd.com zonefreedvd.com to look for a player that is code free. They say you can also "chip" your DVD player to play disks regardless of coding but some DVD disks are designed to determine whether your machine has been altered. Sounds like you best bet is a player that operates regardless of coding. Regards.
