HD DVD Player

Postby pnut » Thu Dec 06, 2007 2:48 pm

I think i read on here that hd dvd dont have region codes and such, but im still utterly confused by the whole thing.
do hd dvds have region codes? do hd dvd players play region 2,3,4 dvds??does anyone here know the answers to these questions???

also, do you have any hd dvd recommendations? (other then HF and SOTD)

Yeah, HD DVD doesn't have any region codes unlike Blu Ray. You can buy any HD DVD movies in the world and it will work on your HD DVD player. :mrgreen:

Hmm... Not sure about backwards compatibility but since HD DVD is region free, there's no reason why it shouldn't be region free for DVDs as well.

Wal-Mart Planning New Hi-Def Video Sale
7 December 2007

Wal-Mart plans another sale of HD DVD high-definition video players on Friday, but instead of dropping the price to $99 as it did on "Black Friday" last month, it will be including up to 12 free movies, depending on the model. List price for the players is $198.00 for Toshiba's HD-A2 and $298.00 for the HD-A3. The retailer will also be offering a free $50 gift card with the purchase of Sony's 40GB PlayStation, which plays Blu-ray hi-def disks.

I'm pretty sure your region 2 DVD's won't work. I think it's just for the HD-DVDs

I managed to persuade a friend to buy a HD DVD player over the Blu-Ray. He even ordered some Blu-Ray movies but cancelled them... :twisted:

So can you see a significant difference in the HD rather than a normal DVD????
