DVD Player for Japan version


#1

Okay, I just received my Japan Kill Bill DVD’s yesterday and went to test them on the DVD player (Region 2) at home, only to find that the films don’t run fluintly (like it’s running at less frames per second then normal).



Then I tried them on my DVD-rom on my computer, only to find that they ran perfectly.



Anyone else had this problem with (European) Region 2 DVD players?



Is there a difference between Japanese and European DVD players?



Or could it be the TV, which is European? I did read something about NTSC and your TV needing to be NTSC or something.



Thanks

Strange man,

there shoudnt be a problem, I got the jap version two days ago, only I always play my dvds on my computer, I’ll check out how they work on my dvd player.

well yes the japanese have NTSC and europe has PAL. check if your TV supports NTSC or if your dvd player allows you to convert from NTSC to PAL. this could indeed be the problem. but it is the wrong forum section to post this, i will move the topic

We have topics about NTSC/Pal and Regions.

Okay, can you give me the name of yout DVD Player and your TV?
How old are both?
Normally it is no problem to see a NTCS DVD on a PAL DVD PLayer or TV. Cuz the modern ones support both. But there are some DVD Player which demand to switch from the one to the other. Same goes for TV.
btw, keep in mind that PAL is better (more frames) than NTSC. But again, on a modrn system it shouldn´t be a problem..

The dvd didnt play at all on my dvd player, but thats because my dvd player is pretty crappy, I bought it at the Aldi :-</E> . I just played it at a friend and it did work.

Well, I can’t check on the TV or DVD at the moment, cause it’s at my mom’s place, and I’m at my dad’s at the moment.

I can check wednesday.
