I bought a Blu Ray DVD player a few months ago here in Australia. It wasn’t sold as a multi-zone player but I did receive instructions on how to set it up to be multi-zone. I’ve heard of people who have had the same experience, i.e. having to follow instructions to set up their DVD players as multi-zone players.
Why aren’t they just sold as multi-zone players by default instead of having to go through a set of instructions? Is this some legal thing? Does this only happen in Australia or does it happen in other countries as well?
