    I found a listing for an Italian seasons set. The art is really nice. Anyone know if this is official too, or no?

    I just found an online version of my TV/DVD manual. Would this indicate I have an ALL region player? would it work?

    Actually, most DVD players 3 years old or less are made so that you can play any region of DVD on them. All you have to do is look up the imput code on the net, punch it in the remote, and you're good to go.

    Unless you specially bought an all-region DVD player, chances are you don't have an all region DVD player. Most all region players are regular players which have had aftermarket modifications done to them that allows them to play anything.

    I don't know about Italian releases.

    While this is true to some extent, a lot of modern DVD players will only let you do this a certain number of times, then it locks you into whatever you have selected.

    I wasn't aware of that, Quin - I never saw that information before. Probably a good thing to know!

    Australia and New Zealand are both PAL, like the mother country.

    I just found that my DVD Player is a Region 1 player. I am in the process to start searching for an ALL Region player. Does anyone have any recommendations or comments about them (any problems using them?) Any links to DVD All Region players you have bought?

    Assuming that I can get an All Region player, does the player also have output to convert this from PAL (DVD input) to NTSC output for my television?

    Thanks,
    Steven Mac

    A good all region player can convert both PAL and NTSC to the appropriate signal for your TV. One that can't isn't worth the money you pay for it.

    The Pioneer DV393S is an excellent option. It's quite loud though (be prepared to have the hum of spinning disks accompanying your movie soundtracks). I recommended this player to my mom when she was looking for an all-region player (British family in the US, wanted to be able to play british DVDs) and it's served quite nicely.

    This one is a little more pricey, but has hdmi support, if that's what you're looking for. I can't offer any sort of information of quality based on a lack of experience.

    Google is your friend when it comes to this sort of stuff, research, look up all region and multi region players and look for reviews if you can. Be aware that many such players have been post-factory modified in order to be multi-region, so don't expect things like "warrantee" to be a factor :p

    Hey Guys,

    After the recommendations made, I decided on ordering the Chinese/English version from Amazon.com. I just received it today and have to say it is great. The Menu is in Chinese & English text (side by side) and plays in Dolby 5.1 English and turned off the chinese subtext. I really like how it arrived, though the manual is in chinese. Well pleased with pay the $104.00 for the full G1 episodes and Transformers Movie.
