Are PS2s naturally multi-region? I’m doubting this.
Mine, a refurb model with a very pernickety attitude to disc quality, seems to be quite happy playing US and UK DVDs and never complains. Is this normal? Have I bought a modded one by accident? I’ve got a million and one ways of playing DVDs of any region but it’s convenient to be able to play them through a box that’s permanently connected to my TV anyway.
(My Powerbook, though, will not. Some sort of issue with the Matsushita drive means that I can’t read DVDs and play them via a software decoder – or at least, nothing I’ve tried so far has worked, and, yes, VLC, MPlayer, ripping the DVD onto my hard disc and so on, done all that. Bah. My pbook’s screen is bigger than my TV’s.)
