Hello all,

First post. Saw the Enclave on Sat, fell in love, got it today :thumb: My first American car, ever! And before you all hate me for the speed of getting a vehicle, the Canadian price was pretty high compared to yours, so think of your wait in a positive money-saving way!

We got the full DVD entertainment/Nav system, and being British, the kid has a lot of UK (region 2) DVDs. I slapped one in today for him, worked no problem. I told him all his DVDs would be fine after that, thinking the player was region-free.

I then read the manual, it says it's not, and I tried another region 2 disc - didn't work, said "region compatibility error" or similar. After the tears and tantrum (kid's, not mine!) we went back to the working disc.

So my question is, it's obviously got multi-region capabilities, is there any way of "unlocking" this feature? Anyone know? Or point me in the right direction? I don't know why 1 disc worked but the other didn't...

Thanks in anticipation,

B

I can't explain why the first CD worked when the other ones didn't. My speculation would be the first CD didn't have a region code. You can always back up your DVDs and make the backup region 1. That way you'll both have them in the house and in your car without fearing of scratching the originals.

I think I'll have to do that FlavaClav - rip his faves into region-free. Been googling with no luck although it seems I'm not the only one - GM are apparently selling Cadillacs in the middle East with the wrong region DVD players in them. Ouch!

Ah well, everything the kid gets from here on in will be Region 1 so it's not that big of a problem. I just need to make sure he chooses only R1 discs for the car to avoid the tears!
