    i'm an HT newbie and am wondering what the differences are, the pros and cons of the Region 0 dvds sold by some asian dvd companies, versus the standard, US purchased dvds.

    i'm looking for the Hong Kong version of Farewell My Concubine, and the movie: "To Live", also known as "Lifetime". they appear to be available in only foreign released versions (in order to purchase the original, Hong Kong released versions with complete scenes, not the reduced scenes version released here in the US) but they are all region 0.

    don't know what that means.

    many thanks.

    my direct email is: eieio@nyc.rr.com

    Hi Vincent. To begin with I'd check out the HTF Primer located here.

    You specifically want the section "What is Region encoding?"
