This UK DVD company suppoesedly releases region 2 discs but they seem tobe region 0. Will they work on a US DVD? I made this as to not getoff topic in the sartana in the valley of death post.
Well…theoretically if they are actually R0 then they should work on any dvd player…
Silver is right of course but the key word here is ‘theoretically’. I have a DVD player in my room which only shows U.S Region 0 discs in black and white. I have no idea why. My other players all play them fine.
I don’t think it has anything to do with region codes, more likely because your dvd player/tv is not compatible with NTSC. Does you dvd player (or tv) have options like “Picture format: PAL/NTSC/AUTO DETECTION”?
My point would be that their DVD’s are PAL. Sartana in the Valley of death was region 0 PAL but worked on my DVD.
You’re right with the comments there. My dvd player is NTSC compatible but it still only plays some of the R0 ntsc discs i have. Others it flat out rejects for some reason…
Strangely enough in my experience usually the cheaper the dvd player, the more discs it will swallow.
