I have a situation and I'm hoping someone, anyone can shed some light for me and possibly be able to give me information for the problem I'm experiencing. I have a JVC XV-S300 and I am experiencing problems when playing an All Region DVD. Since Once Upon A Time In America is not yet available in the states I bought the Greek version a certain website is selling. I had already dealt with a cheapy Asian version and felt the Greek version would be of better quality. It plays great, but when the point where the dual layer transfers to the next layer the DVD completely freezes. I have to skip ahead and rewind to the point of the problem, almost as annoying as a flipper. So I'm wondering if anyone has had any problems playing All Region DVDs in their JVC dvd player, my sister owns a JVC as well and experiences the same exact problem. I've read on the internet that usually JVC dvd players won't play All Region DVDs. Why would they do such a thing? I thought the DVD was defective, but it plays fine in a Sony dvd player, a Sony Playstation 2 and a Panasonic Laptop. When I contacted JVC I was told it was not the machine and if the problem was not with a Region 1 DVD they could not help me. What really burns me though is she was acting like All Region DVDs were illegal, but if that was the case why do many bands and small DVD distributors use All Region coding on their DVDs that are sold in the U.S.A. I'm completely lost! Any explaination as to JVCs lameness or the dual layer freezing problem is greatly appreciated and welcome. I've never heard anyone complain about not being able to play their Once Upon A Time In America DVD and the company said they have never had any complaints and would replace it, but should I? Thanks in advance!
