    Dvd question!

    If we take DVD's with us, do we need to take a UK Dvd player? :unsure: Would they work on Australian Dvd players? :unsure:

    TV and DVD compatability in Oz?

    This has been asked before but I am still unclear as to what the solituion is? I found this posted on GoMatilda but am unclear as many people say that their UK TV's work over there? Televisions and video recorders made for the UK will not work in Australia, because the frequency of the sound signal differs between the two countries - you might be able to tune into a TV station and see a picture, but you won't be able to hear the sound Any thoughts? Thanks

    TV, DVD Problems

    Sorry if this has been written before but I've been searching around for some time and can't find anything to help. I bought my large TV and DVD writer to Aus and obviously can't tune into the freeview channels here. The DVD writer will only play DVD's and play what's on the hard drive. It can't even find any tv channels at all. I bought a cheap set top box which gave me the additional channels but a bad picture. I emailed Sony to see if there was anything that I can buy/do to get this thing working and all they suggested was that I had to buy a new DVD writer. Does anyone know if there is anything I can do so that at least the DVD writer will pick up the terrestrial channels here so that I can record things. any help is appreciated as I've already spent many hours (hate to admit it) trying to get things working!!

    Digital TV and DVD

    I actually live in New Zealand, but hope that the information I'm after is relevant to Australia too. I am planning on returning to the UK after 20 years here. Can anyone tell me if my digital TV and DVD will work in the UK? I know that when we moved out here we had to ditch our TV, but that was back in the old analogue days. I'm hoping digital technology works the same in the UK as NZ and Australia. Thanks!
  9. Hy guy's Apologies again as to why i've not posted on here for a while, been mega busy since we bought our house, little did i realise back in the UK that my semi detatched front lawn would be a doddle now compared to the overwhelming task each week i now endure..............still i'm NOT WHINGING lol just a slight moan. Ayway i have managed to De-Regionalise my English bought Samsung dvd player :jiggy: The other day we sat down to watch Elf, that someone had bought one of my boys for christmas here in Oz.........put it in and :arghh: didn't play wrong Region. So i did a bit of googling and managed to De-Regionalise it, i'm not sure how legal :policeman: it is to do but, well ? Anyway i decided to explore what other money saving ideas i could come up with as most of us whether over here or ready to come over will experience the same frustrations etc, and this is where some of my time has been spent as well. I have started to hand write my ideas down ready to put on a site i created, the site is new and i would appreciate your feedback. P.s the info for doing the dvd thing id all explained on there. Happy New Year by the way

    Hi, this is a bit of a random question but we were just wondering about dvd's and cd's in Oz. I believe Oz is region 4 for dvd's and we are region 2 and so they wont work over there. Any ways round this?? Can we save things to a pen/hard drive and take that over or would customs check and think we had broken copyright laws? Just got a lot of dvds and not sure wot to do with them! Thanks x :wideeyed:

    Living Down Under DVD's

    Evening all Can anyone point me in the right direction, I am trying to get DVD's of the Living Down Under series (so that we can at least see it as we won't get there till 2012!). Does anyone know of a website I can order them from? Can't find them any where. Also, does any one know when the new series will start? Thanks all Lynda

    Living Down Under DVD...

    Im possibly going to buy one of these DVDs.....So thought i'd post the link, in case anyone else was interested? :wideeyed: http://www.livingdownunder.net/ Be good to hear from anyone that has already bought one too....:yes:
  18. Hi. It is my grans birthday next month so I thought that it might be nice to send her some pics and camcorder footage of our daughters and where we are living. She has a dvd player, so if I copy photos and camcorder footage from my laptop on to a dvd, will she be able to look at the photos on the dvd player/tv? We have a blu-ray thing so I'm not sure that if I test the theory on ours, it will work on hers. She doesn't have access to a computer very often and I don't want to send her a useless birthday present that she can't look at. Cheers!

    Living Down Under DVD's

    l have a copy of 'Living Down Under, Sydney, NSW' and 'Living Down Under, Gold Coast' that we no longer need and am happy to send these to anyone who might wanna look. l purchased these originally from Australian Emigration DVDs - Living Down Under and they are advertised as 'a real life view of everyday living in Australia for UK families considering making Australia home'. They are basically DVD's made on a home camcorder by a lady called Tessa Steven and are quite basic however they might prove useful for some people and dont really wanna bin em. Just PM me and l will post free of charge to first people to request them. Lyn x

    Dvd's about moving to Australia

    Hi, Can anyone recommend any good Dvd's about moving to Australia? I buy all the books, magazines & am always researching on the net, but my husband isnt really into that, so I thought a Dvd would be perfect (also good for my eldest son) Kelly.:smile:
