I have just a small question regarding Regional Coding Enhancement and the FAQ at http://www.dvdtalk.com/rce.html

I apologize if this has already been covered somewhere. :-)

When the FAQ lists a number of players and say that they "pass the RCE Test," does that mean, as one would assume, that they WILL play RCE discs?

I have a "region-free" (multi-region?) Samsung DVD-709 player myself. I have no idea how that feature technically works on the player - whether it reports itself as accepting any region or whether it does it in a way that is smart enough to handle RCE, I only know that it's automatic. I did notice Samsung DVD-709 on the list, so I thought I should ask you knowledgeable guys. :-)

A small second question: is the list on the FAQ page over titles that have RCE up to date?

Thanks!

Ole

Thanks folks!

Through further investigation it seems that the 709 DOES in fact play RCE disks. So I guess I'll take the chance and order one to check for myself. :-)

rce & JVC machines

I have a JVC XV-M557 that I disappointing just found is NOT RCE compatible when trying to play "The Patriot".

The "Q: Which players pass the RCE Test?" list at http://www.dvdtalk.com/rce.html does list a JVC 557 model as being compatible, but my DVD player doesnt quite match this model number & definately isnt compatible.

Does anyone know of a work around on this model?
tks

Have you tried this from the faq?

Q: Are there workarounds for RCE Region-Free or Code-Free DVD players?
A: RCE does affect these players but there are work arounds:

1. If your player has manual Regional Switch capability, then use the manual switch and set it to Region 1.
2. If this doesn't work, play a non-RCE Region 1 title for a few seconds, and then put in the RCE title.


This worked for my Region-Free player,
Prutser.

it worked!

tks for your reply.
As my player doesn't have a manual Regional Switch capability, I your second suggestion. Fter playing a non-RCE Region 1 title for a few seconds (past the FBI warning screen), I put in the RCE title & it worked!

BTW I had tried this before, but only to the menu screen. When I tried again I actually started the movie & this switched the player over to R1 mode. So the trick is to actually play the movie - not just the menu.

tks again
