  • How to Play DVDs and Blu-ray Discs from Other Countries

    how to play dvds and blu-ray discs from other countriesThere are plenty of reasons for purchasing movies on DVD or Blu-ray from overseas. A few examples are that some countries censor films and exclude critical parts of the story, some films may not be available in your country, and films from other countries are often cheaper to purchase. Certain genres such as Kung-Fu and Japanese Animation are available around the world, yet often the best titles are only sold in the countries of origin. Many independent films are also not for sale internationally and anyone interested must purchase them from the country where they were produced.
     
    The age of the internet has made it remarkably easy for cinema fans and movie collectors to acquire films from various countries, and you can even shop for movies by region from stores who specialize in selling foreign discs. However, there's a slight setback to owning foreign film titles on DVD or Blu-ray disc - they're usually not compatible with your player.
     
    With the basic intentions of maximizing profits and protecting copyright status, production companies and manufacturers work together to limit the playback capabilities of DVDs and Blu-ray discs purchased from other countries. Normally, a Blu-ray player purchased in North America will only play discs purchased in North America. Likewise, a European Blu-ray player will only play discs local to Europe. Attempting to use a European-bought disc in a North American player will result in an "error" where the player will tell you that the disc format is not supported. This is solely due to the encoding and decoding process. Each region uses it's own disc encoding, and the players from each region are set to only decode discs that originate from that home region.
     
    Of course there are ways around these regional limitations. Some people have found that they can hack their players, giving them the ability to play DVDs and Blu-ray discs from other countries regardless of the disc encoding. There are many ways that people go about hacking their players but the methods aren't always effective. Often times, the hacking results in a player that locks up or gets stuck on a different region, eliminating the possibility for playback of local discs. It's a risky decision to try and hack your player, and the benefits aren't always worth the cost of a broken unit. Also, there's a much better solution for playing movies from anywhere in the world; a Region-Free player.
     
    Region-Free players aren't sold by major retailers. You'll have to find a reputable retailer who specializes in region-free players and purchase directly from them. These players have been professionally modified and will easily play discs from any region, without any issues. Both the software and hardware of region-free players is altered to ensure proper and efficient playback of any disc you can imagine. In addition to playback, most region-free players feature worldwide voltage and internal Pal/NTSC conversion. Worldwide voltage gives you the ability to use your player in any country without a voltage converter - simply set the player to the proper voltage (110/120 or 220/240) - while the internal video conversion ensures the player will work with any TV without an external video converter. A Region-Free player is basically universal. You can take them anywhere, plug them in, use them with any TV, and play any disc. It's really rather simple and while they do cost a bit more, the price increase isn't absurd.
     
    Most retailers of region-free players sell the same models from the top brand names that you'll see in stores. Good retailers even sell high-end models that have been modified for universal region-free use. These players usually cost 20 - 40% more than the un-modified model, but the value is self-explanatory.
     
    Now that you know how to play DVDs and Blu-ray discs from other countries, you can get on with watching your foreign movie titles. In fact, you can even start shopping for foreign discs to expand your collection! Just be sure that the player you decide do buy is advertised as being region-free, and be sure you're purchasing from a reputable retailer.

  • Consolidate & Centralize Your Digital Media with a Smart Home Theater System

    centralize your media with a smart home theater systemWhen the term "home theater system" first originated, it was based on creating a theater-like experience with the use of a surround sound audio system. Over the years, the term Home Theater has taken on new meaning, encompassing all types of media - from music and movies to home video, photo albums and more. What was once the ability to enjoy great sound has transformed into endless entertainment possibilities. So what exactly does a Smart Home Theater System do? Practically everything!
     
    Thanks to the advances with television and Blu-ray technology in recent years, we're now able to consolidate and centralize media from multiple devices on our home network. Rather than acting only as a devices to watch Cable TV or movies, TVs and Blu-ray players have morphed into smart media hubs equipped with features like built-in Wi-Fi, voice and motion recognition, and the ability to make video calls with people halfway around the world. You can download and use apps that allow you to keep up with sports, surf social media, stream 4K Ultra-HD movies, listen to streaming music from thousands of channels, and even play video games. If your Blu-ray player or Smart TV are equipped with DLNA compatibility, you can watch movies or listen to your music playlist from a laptop in your bedroom, wirelessly, directly on your TV and surround sound system. The days of burning discs and messy cables are over - everything can be handled wirelessly through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
     
    Screen mirroring is another great feature that allows you to share your smartphone or tablet's screen with your Smart TV. Let's say you want to watch a 45 minute documentary from the web on your big screen - just connect your phone with the TV, start playing the video on your phone and it will appear on your TV in full resolution with surround sound. This allows you to watch videos on a much larger scale, with improved audio and without the need to search for the video using the TV or Blu-ray Player's web browser (which can often be slow and fussy).
     
    Many Smart TVs and Blu-ray Players are now featuring dual-zone audio, which sometimes goes by different names. What this feature does is utilize a 7.1 channel audio system to set 2 channels to a different area. A great example of this would be to use two channels for the speakers for your outdoor patio, bar, or a basement. What's more is that while you can listen to your playlists from other devices, you can even use your smartphone as a remote control with many TVs and players. This means that when you're outside having a party (and listening to music that's both inside and outside your home thanks to dual-zone audio) you can use your phone's screen to access the user interface from the TV or Blu-ray player, select music, skip tracks, adjust the volume and more! If that's not impressive, we're not sure what is.
     
    Many people aren't aware of the true power of their Smart TVs or Smart Blu-ray Players. They can do a lot and they can do it all wirelessly. The technology is becoming more flexible, more capable, faster and more complete. When you're ready to consolidate your digital media for easy wireless access and playback on your TV and surround sound system, look into upgrading to a Smart Home Theater. For even more flexibility and universal use with any voltage, any TV and discs from anywhere in the world, look into purchasing a Region-Free Home Theater System - the ultimate in digital media flexibility.
     
    Don't take our word for it, start looking to create your own Smart Home Theater System today. You're going to be amazed by the features that come packaged with Smart TVs and Blu-ray players. It's easier than even to consolidate and centralize your music, movies, photos, and home videos with the smart interfaces they offer.

    The Region-Free Oppo UDP-205 Blu-ray Player is here and it's ready to deliver the finest home theater experience imaginable. The UDP-205 is a 4k UHD player similar to the popular UDP-203 but with an enhanced focus on producing reference quality audio for true audiophiles. As always, this Oppo machine features heavy-duty construction that's designed to last a lifetime, plus the very latest in cutting-edge audio/video technology. Precision engineering and unparalleled performance has given Oppo a name that's respected around the globe, and the UDP-205 does a fine job of keeping that reputation in place.
     
    region-free oppo udp-205 blu-ray player
     
    The Region-Free UDP-205 is more costly than the 203 and comes with a different set of features, but for anyone who's serious about audio the 205 is a must have unit that provides excellent control and compatibility for a wide-range of use.
     
    What makes the UDP-205 so special? It begins with the components. This machine is equipped with a torodial power supply to enhance power delivery why reducing interferences that can be caused by traditional steel-core transformers. It provides cleaner, more focused energy to each and every audio component in the system, resulting in exceptional sound clarity and depth. The machine is also equipped with two SABRE PRO DACs (ESS Technology ES9038PRO) - one for 7.1-channel audio and another for stereo - to ensure the richest and most powerful sound regardless of your audio setup. The headphone amplifier also utilizes the high-end SABRE PRO DAC, giving headphone performance that is unmatched even by Oppo's previous machines. Furthermore, the unique asynchronous USB DAC input supports sample rates of up to 768kHz PCM and DSD 512, and can convert digital signals from other home theater components to analog, bypassing the low-fidelity DACs of computers, video game consoles, etc.. A second audio zone can also be setup, allowing you to utilize the 7.1-channel system to feed audio to speakers in a second part of your home such as a bar, basement or outdoor speakers for improved coverage and acoustics.
     
    Featuring an HDMI audio jitter reduction circuit, the Region-Free Oppo UDP-205 offers increased audio timing and accuracy when the audio-only HDMI port is used for connecting your audio signal. This improves the quality of both PCM and DSD audio, while aiding in the production of error-free audio when using compressed bitstream audio. No matter how this player is setup and configured, it offers the utmost flexibility for superior sound quality. In the case of the Region-Free Opo UDP-205, the statement "you get what you pay for" couldn't be more true. This player offers the best of the best with no boring fillers or unnecessary features.
     
    Compatibility is another factor that the folks at Oppo have mastered with the UDP-205 as the player is compatible with nearly all file formats and every type of disc imaginable. Yes, this includes SACD. Whether you're popping in a disc, accessing files from another device via your home network or utilizing a USB port to play your favorite audio files, the 205 plays practically anything. In fact, there wasn't a popular audio format that it wouldn't play for us and we tried many. The same can be said for high definition audio decoding, as all major formats are supported including the latest such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Lossless audio decoding is also packaged with the 205, lending support for AIFF, WAV, ALAC, APE and FLAC formats.
     
    It's important to mention that our Region-Free Oppo UDP-205 has been professionally modified for universal playback and compatibility and that this model is not available in stores. It is equipped with worldwide voltage, allowing it to work anywhere in the world (110 to 240 volts and 50/60hz) without a voltage converter/transformer. It also features internal PAL to NTSC conversion which eliminates the need for audio/video converters and makes it simple to plug & play with any TV. More importantly, it will play any Blu-ray or DVD disc from any region in the world. You can take this player anywhere, use any TV, and play any disc - it works every time and delivers superior performance that only Oppo can offer. What more needs to be said? Learn more about the Region-Free Oppo UDP-205 here and get yours today, you won't be disappointed.

  • Top 10 Things You Need Before Moving Overseas

    top 10 things you need before moving overseasSo you've decided to move overseas. It might be temporary or it might be permanent. Whether for business, retirement or a long-term change of pace, you're heading to a foreign country to live amongst the locals for longer stay than just a typical vacation. It's not uncommon to think you have everything planned out and are ready to go, but you might be able to benefit from just a few pointers from professional travelers and expatriates.
     
    Before we begin with our top 10 things you need before moving overseas, let us cover the single most important thing you can do - research. Research the area you'll be living, the neighborhood, the main supermarkets and the central areas of the town or city. Google Maps is great for this and makes it easy to create a custom map with pinpoints of particular places of importance. Familiarize yourself with the location of the closest supermarket, hospital, police station and your foreign embassy. Get a general feel for NSEW (North, South, East, West) to make it easier to orientate yourself until you become familiar via firsthand experience. You'll also want to use the most central point in the city/neighborhood and your home's location as your two points of reference, which will help familiarize you with the larger area as you learn. When you find a new point of interest, mark it on your map. You'll learn your way around more quickly by using these methods. Also, research local customs, culture, foods, holidays, and familiarize your self with the monetary exchange rate. Learning as much as possible about your destination before you depart is one of the most important steps you can take. Now, let's take a look at our top 10 things you need before moving overseas.
     

    Top 10 Things You Need Before Moving Overseas

     
    1. GSM Unlocked Cell Phone
    Yes, we're sure you won't forget your cell phone. It'd be hard to imagine life without it; we have the whole world at our fingertips. One mistake that many travelers make is bringing along their cell that's already on contract with a service provider from their home country. This is wrong for two reasons - you're going to be charged for roaming (if it's even available), and even without roaming costs your service is going to cost more as compared to a local service in your destination country. Instead, buy a GSM Unlocked Phone from eBay or any reputable retailer of global phones. You can even get the top brands in "factory unlocked" format which means the phone isn't locked to a service provider and only needs an activated SIM card for service. Once you have your phone, purchase a SIM card on eBay for a service provider in the country where you're heading. This prevents you from trying to activate a phone in a foreign language or searching for the best service provider once you arrive. Your phone will be ready to go when you land at the airport. There's plenty of information online for setting up your phone service with a foreign SIM card. Many eBay sellers of SIM cards also provide helpful instructions for setup as well as making payments for minutes, data plans, etc. Once you're familiar with this, you'll be able to go to any country and simply purchase a local SIM card to have a fully functional smartphone. This is a huge money saver and makes you much more flexible when traveling. Heading back home next year? No problem. When you arrive, just purchase a SIM card from a local company and you're ready to go. Global flexibility is key.
     
    2. Rosetta Stone
    No, not the ancient artifact. Rosetta Stone is the world's premier language learning program and is used by the top institutions in the world for rapidly and effectively learning foreign languages. It's the next best thing to a personal language teacher and it allows you to learn at your own pace. The program is extremely detailed and depending on which one you buy, can teach you from a beginner's level up to a college graduate. There are a lot of language systems that claim to be the best, but in the long run, Rosetta Stone is a proven winner. It's not cheap, but it's worth every penny. Learning the local language is critical for to day-to-day life in a new country and it's also a great way to make new friends.
     
    3. Lots of Clothes
    When we say lots of clothes, we don't mean 3 suitcases full. However, beware that it can often be really difficult to purchase suitable clothing in a foreign land. Often times the sizes will run differently and the styles will not be what you expected. Furthermore, not all countries sell a large amount of quality clothing due to the average income, and therefor the prices can be astronomical just for a decent pair of jeans or a high-quality shirt. If there's something important to your wardrobe, bring extra in case they're not available in your destination country. A few packages of extra socks/underwear/bras are always a good idea.
     
    4. Backup ATM/Credit Cards
    You really don't want to imagine what it's like when you're in a foreign country, out of cash, and take a trip to the ATM only to have it malfunction and eat your card. Likewise, it's easy to lose a purse or wallet - whether on accident or to a thief. If your card is gone and you have no access to cash, you'll be in a bad situation. Furthermore, most banks don't like the idea of sending new cards overseas and even if they do, mail is not always reliable. The best bet is to ask your bank for a second card before you depart. Keep this card in a safe space in case you lose your first. If your first card has been stolen, the backup card at least allows you to quickly access an ATM for emergency cash before contacting your bank to cancel the stolen card.
     
    5. Voltage Converter and Plug Adapters
    Yes, different countries use different voltage. Although it may be confusing, electricity is not universal. While North American uses 120 volts, other areas of the world use 220 volts - and it's not compatible with your North American electronics. A voltage converter will change the voltage for you so you can use your electronics and personal appliances without ruining them or running the risk of fire or electrocution. Plug adapters are another important thing since the electrical outlets are not the same in foreign countries. You can't use your electronics if you can't even plug them in, right? This travel voltage converter kit is the perfect solution as it has adapters for every country and a voltage converter perfect for personal electronics and appliances, plus a high setting for things like a curling iron or hair dryer. If you're bringing more than just the basic devices along with you, you might need a voltage converter capable of handling larger appliances. For more information about voltage converters, check out this voltage converter buying guide.
     
    6. Battery Backup for Cell Phone
    When you're lost in a foreign country, or need to order an Uber at 1am in a not-so-safe area, you need to have enough battery to use your phone. While it seems like our phones only run out of juice at the most inconvenient times, there is a safe and easy solution - the portable battery backup charger. here handy little devices range from the size of a Bic lighter to the size of a large cell phone, depending on the type and quality. Some will give your phone a 50% boost while the more expensive (and larger) ones can fully charge your phone 3 times or more. These can be bought in any electronics store, but you'll find the best deals and selection on eBay. Some will even fit in your wallet, making them truly easy to carry at all times.
     
    7. Waterproof Document Bag
    Moving overseas requires paperwork. Even for vacation, you'll still need to ensure your passport is safe and dry. When living overseas, you might discover that leaky roof has unexpectedly flooded your home during a rainstorm. Maybe you drop your backpack accidentally into a fountain, or there's a minor fire in your hotel and everything is soaked by the fire sprinklers. Whatever the case is, it's better to be safe rather than sorry. A waterproof bag is an excellent place to keep your passport, identification and any important papers of permits you may have. You can easily find a waterproof document bag on eBay, some are just simple sleeves. If you really want to protect your paper valuables, you can even put your waterproof document holder inside of a fireproof storage bag. It might sound extreme, but if you care to imagine what it's like to be in a foreign country with no passport and no proof of entry..... Let's just say it's not fun and it's not cheap.
     
    8. Google Translate App
    The google translate app isn't a substitute for learning a language, but it can supplement your studies with Rosetta Stone, and can also make daily life much easier. One thing that's really cool about this app is its ability to translate signs. Yes, signs. Simply shot a picture and highlight the text - the app will detect and translate the text from any photo you desire. That's a really cool thing to have, and in some circumstances can even save your life. A quick example? A sign reading "Caution, Crocodiles! Do Not Enter The Water!".
     
    9. WhatsApp
    If you haven't already heard of it, WhatsApp is a free messenger app for your smartphone. It can be used with data or wi-fi, making it a cheap and effective way to communicate without wasting your precious minutes. It's very popular in many parts of the world and gaining popularity in North America. Chances are that everyone in your destination country is already using it. You can use WhatsApp to make phone calls and video calls to other WhatsApp users. You can also share images, video and even documents. This is a great app to have.
     
    10. Personal Effects
    Whether you take medication, have a favorite perfume or are addicted to a certain cooking ingredient, it's important to evaluate your personal effects and double/triple/quadruple the amount you take with you. If you can't live without it, take plenty with you, and then some extra. Everything you're used to isn't always available overseas and if so, it's not always the same - sometimes it's not even slightly resembling of what you're used to. SO make a list of the most important things. Note allergies, medications, supplements, and anything/everything that's really important to you and check if it's available where you're heading. If a skin condition requires a specific brand of hypo-allergenic sunblock, be sure to purchase plenty because there's no guarantee you'll find what you need in your destination country. Prescription lenses are another thing that you might want to consider. Take an extra pair with you because if you lose or break your glasses, you don't want to be blindly searching for a new eye doctor in a foreign language.
     
    We hope our list of the top 10 things you need before moving overseas covered a few things you've never considered, and we hope you learned a pointer or two! Moving to a foreign country is one of the most beneficial and enjoyable experiences you can have, but it's important to be prepared. You'll learn more as you go along, but a few tips can always make it easier to adapt. Have fun and safe travels!

This is often hard to accomplish in foreign countries where the product selection isn't always as large, the stores don't carry what you're looking for, the prices are too high, and the language barrier makes it difficult to find out where to buy exactly what you need.

  • Voltage Transformers for United States

    voltage transformer for the united statesWhen you travel to the United States for an extended vacation, a job opportunnity or to permanently relocate, you need to be prepared for using any electronics you may bring along with you. In the United States, the standard voltage is 120 volts. This means all electronics in the USA are designed and sold to be used at this voltage. Electronic devices and appliances from other countries designed for 220 volt electricity are not compatible in the USA, and attempting to use foreign electronics in the US can result in broken or damaged devices, electrocution, or even fire. The simplest way to avoid any problems would be to purchase new electronics and/or appliances in the US, but this isn't always economical. If you want a simple, safe and effective solution, you'll need to purchase a voltage transformer.
     
    Voltage transformers convert the voltage up or down so you can safely use devices intended for different voltages. For example, a step-down transformer can change voltage from 220 volts down to 120 volts, while a step-up transformer can change the voltage from 120 volts up to 220. Voltage converters have outlets built into them and are used by plugging the transformer into the wall outlet and then plugging your electronics or appliances directly into the transformer itself. It's really no different than using an extension cable or multi-outlet device.
     
    For those going to the USA from a 220-volt country, you'll need to use a step-up voltage transformer to safely step the 120-volt electricity up to 220 volts for your devices. They're simple and effective to use, not to mention much cheaper than purchasing new electronics or appliances.
     
    One important thing to note when choosing the proper transformer is to choose one with the correct wattage, which much be sufficient to power your electronics. You'll need to purchase a transformer with a wattage rated for 1.5 to 2 times the wattage of your devices to ensure there are no issues with eletrical surges or fluctuation. For example, using a 500 watt-TV from Europe in the USA will require a 1000 watt voltage converter. A 500-watt TV and a 800-watt blender - if ran on the same transformer simultaneously - would require a converter with approximately 2500 watts to ensure safe functionality of both units.
     
    It's really quite simple. Voltage transformers are a safe and effective tool to use for international travel and are common with expats, long-term travelers and retirees who go overseas. For more information on choosing the proper voltage converter, visit our voltage converter buying guide.

  • Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players for Global Use

    region free 4k blu-ray playersThe newest Blu-ray technology is here, and it's 4 times the resolution of 1080p HD. 4k resolution, also known as Ultra-HD (UHD), has been in the works for quite some time now. The technology has actually been readily available with TVs for a couple years now but the market for 4k Blu-ray Players and 4k discs was lagging far behind. While several manufacturers released players in the past with 4k upscaling, it wasn't true 4k resolution unless the disc and the Blu-ray player had the actual UHD format.
     
    In the last year, three of the top manufacturers have released true Ultra-HD Blu-ray Players that perform in all their glory to deliver an astounding - and very lifelike - picture of 3840 x 2160 pixels. In unison with your 4k TV, you can now play 4k discs on a 4k Blu-ray player and experience the true, intended quality of Ultra-HD.
     
    What's more than the ever increasing availability of 4k Blu-ray disc titles and 4k Blu-ray Players? Region Free 4k Blu-ray Players. If you're not familiar with the term, let me break it down for you as quickly as possible. All discs are coded to play only in players purchased from the same region where discs are sold. Chinese Blu-ray and DVDs are not compatible with North American or European players and vice-versa. If you want to watch discs from other countries, you'll need a Region Free player. Furthermore, Region Free 4k Blu-ray players are compatible with any electrical voltage, allowing you to use the player anywhere in the world without a voltage converter. They even feature internal Pal/NTSC conversion which eliminates the need to use an external video converter for foreign TVs. In all reality, the Region Free 4k Blu-ray Player is a truly global player. It works universally, with any TV, at any voltage, to play any disc from anywhere in the world.
     
    Although there's only a few true 4k Blu-ray players on the market, it's already possible to purchase the Region Free models from reputable retailers such as ourselves.
