I've just tried to buy a region free bluray player but the shop said it would be locked to a region regarding dvds. I wanted to still play my region 1 and 2 dvds. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best way I can do this. It sounds like I might have to buy 2 players, one British and one American player. I've just tried to play a couple of region 1 dvd's on my UK laptop and they play. They are old b/w Warner Bros films, but they won't play on my dvd player, which is a cheap one I have to say. Does anyone know why they played on my laptop? I didn't think my laptop had a multiregion player installed (it's a Samsung notebook), so I'm wondering if the discs are region 0 even though they say region 1. Thanks.
