I-Macs default after seven changes, I believe, to the last region that
was set.
In the UK a DVD player costs about £45 ($70US) and that plays all DVDs
(if need be there's a code you type into the handset that sets the
regions, these codes are normally available on-line)
I have three DVDs, one in an old computer, one in a less old computer
and a DVD player, in the UK DVDs are now everywhere - rewards for
spending on credit cards, gifts if you buy a new washing machine,
whatever. Surely in America the situation is the same..? If need be,
surely have multiple DVDs set to different regions?
