I just saw this on Cool Tools. It contains info about a cheap, readily available DVD player that can be easily reprogrammed to ignore region coding and play international DVDs.
Also at the same link, a couple sites that feature nerdy chatter about all manner of international DVD releases of interest to the people who get so worked up about such things in Lucius's movie threads.

How did I miss THIS thread for the last 12 days?
I suffered for years with the issue of VHS quality degredation in standards conversion (NTSC-3, NTSC-4, SECAM, good grief.) At the dawn of the DVD era I refused to buy a DVD player until I could get one that was all region and that converted between PAL and NTSC. I'm now on my 3rd, a 5 DVD changer and I'm about to buy a backup.
I'm one of those people who get so worked up about these things - and proud of it. Thanks for the site recommendation!!! Never heard of them before but you may be sure I will spend plenty of time there now. (I really do like Asian films, although you wouldn't know it from my posts. Hope you enjoy JSA.)

JSA is the one film on the library lending list that had a handful of holds ahead of mine. I know that THE ISLE is en route, but JSA is going to be hanging out there a bit longer. I'm excited to see it though.
Rich, I'm afraid I can't handle the long torrent downloads (my pipe is not all that phat), and I have a fetish for actual packaged DVDs. My pipe is not phat. If I get desperate, though...good to know about.

It is woit de wait. TOTALLY not what I expected when I started watching it - and that is one of my favorite potential characteristics of a film, book, or CD.

Pretty good analysis, PsychoGirl.)
