Re playing DVDs the problem is the DVD zoning (not the format), designed with new-release films in mind. North America (US & Canada) is Region 1 while (Western) Europe is Region 2 etc; some DVDS are multi-zone sometimes called Region 0. You can convert DVD players to multizone. In New Zealand DVD players are (legally) advertised and sold as multizone, and when we got a player which was not multizone some years ago the retailer sent it back to the Auckland distributor for modifying (DVD players and similar items here are generally Japanese brands though possibly made in Malaysia or Thailand etc). While Oz, NZ and Latin America are Region 4, most DVDs sold here are American or British (some of the BBC DVDs of Dad’s Army I have are labelled on the back “Regions 2 + 4”). Can someone say what zones the 2016 S&A movie is for; generally low down on the back of the case).
