This is to all of you who have querried the wisdom of bringing your dvd players/movies with you to Australia given the different region codes out there. I had the same question before I arrived (3 days ago). I just purchased at Tandy Electronics (in all the major malls - known as Radio Shack in Canada) for $89.00, tax in, a dvd player that is programable to player all region DVDs. The instrctions are not included in the manual to the player but are freely given by the staff to anyone who asks. You simply key a code on the remote control, very easy. The staff at the store said all of their dvd players are programable the same way. I had also asked at a video rental location and they had a philips player which was programable the same way for $149. Hope this helps. Mike
