I have a portable dvd player with....ntsc/pal switch?

Hi. I received a Audiovox Portable dvd player for x-mas. It has a ntsc/pal switch. Does this mean I can play any region dvd's on it? Or, that I can play any european pal dvd's? I could not find any info in the manual about this.

Thanks, I checked but there was not a hack for my model listed. It's a Audiovox d1700.

Anyone else know if I can play other regions with this player.

try this it is for the model below yours it might work however....

Region code or Macrovision hack posted by Dappya Kaijuu at August 15 2001:
To change the regions you use the remote control Push the following sequence of buttons:

SETUP
+10
PREV
NEXT

A screen will appear which will show you that the DVD player is in region 1. Use the left and right arrows to select the region you want to play. When you have selected the region press the SETUP button to exit.
Power off the DVD player, when you power on the DVD player it will select the new region.

Note that you can select region 0 which is a bypass region, which will allow you to play any region, however some of the recent DVD titles being produced with RCE etc will detect that you are on Bypass and will not play.
