DVD-VIDEO Playback and Region Codes (Region Numbers) The playing of DVD-VIDEO (DVD discs) is protected and controlled by a region code* setting. * Region Playback Control standard (RPC standard) In order for the DVD-ROM drive to play a DVD-VIDEO, the region code shown on the DVD disc, the region code of the DVDROM drive, and the DVD video software region code must all match. DVD-VIDEO Playback and Region Codes with the CRXP-90MU With the CRXP-90MU, the region code can be set up to five times, including the initial assignment (RPC Phase 2 standard). The CRXP-90MU region code is set by the DVD-VIDEO playback software. Important After setting the region code five times (including the initial setting), the setting becomes permanent and cannot be changed. Thereafter, you will only be able to play DVD-VIDEOs whose region code matches that set the fifth time. CAUTION Do not attempt to make unauthorized changes to the region code. Any problems that result from doing so will not be covered by the warranty. Points to Consider when Playing DVD-VIDEOs The playback conditions for DVD-VIDEOs are sometimes determined by software makers. Since the CRXP-90MU plays back discs as determined by the software manufacturer, some drive functions may not always work as expected. When playing back DVD-VIDEOs, refer to the instructions accompanying each disc.
