Do Normal DVD players which are connected to the Tv have region coding or are region free . One of my friend owns a DVD Player and played a DVD with a region code 1 and soon after than he played a DVD with a Region code 2 . Both the DVD's played very well with no problem or errors . Now the thing is my DVD Rom is bounded by the region codes ! Right now it is set to Region 1 - thats the Region whose DVD's i mostly play . Whn i went to Sony World and asked the sales dude how many times can a region code be changed in their DVD players he replied only once and then it is set to that region . So how come my frnd could change the DVD Player's code 2 times (owns the same Sony model that i enquired abt) . If DVD Players dont have region coding (are region free) then why the Hell do Computer DVD Drives have Region coding ??? Kinda confused here..... !!!
