I live in the USA have a Toshiba 3107 which is supposed to be a mulit-regional player. (However, I don't exactly know how far it will take me given a region 2 DVD and I've never tried to play one.) Does anyone know if this player will play a DVD-R recorded in the UK. I am about to receive a DVD transferred from home movies and I wonder if my machine will be able to play the disc. I tend to think that a DVD-R could not be encoded with region 2 copywrite protection if only copied on a DVD recorder. What am I missing in this topic of regional compatability?
