    It will ask you once, if it can't figure it out itself.

    all right, i thought it will remove it regardless what i choose.
    are there any cases that i should use a specific region code instead of removing it?

    The automatic mode isn't perfect. It's not always possible to detect the disc region. Any time you wish you play YOUR region's discs, in a player of a different region; or play discs from a different region in YOUR player. You MUST specify the DISC's region in order to make it region free. (Anydvd does this by making the disc THINK it's then always playing in a player of the region it came from, essentially making it region free)

    If you don't import discs, or have no plans on playing yours in a foreign region, you don't need to remove the region. If you have such plans, you do need to remove it.

    Just a follow up question on this feature. I use DVD & BR from multiple regions, and also use Nimbie and MyMovies.dk so I can load a stack of 50 discs, and let it run. However, everything comes to a halt if the Region detection pop-up box appears. Is there a way to do a setting so discs from various regions will always play as my home USA region without stopping the process with that pop-up region box?

    Thanks!

    Not that i know of, the only workaround the dialogue is to set a fixed region, but if you then insert a disc that doesn't match (eg you specified fixed region A, but you insert a region B disc) you will cause a region mismatch and the disc will refuse to play.

    I figured that was going to be the answer, and of course I need the setting to remove region so I can play it easily on my networked Dune Solo TV device.

    It’s not the end of the world if the automated Nimbie stack has to be manually dealt with to clear the region pop-up...but it would be cool if they could just always remove any region without needing to answer the pop up.

    Thanks though!

    Well, you could do it one other way and process your multiple discs according to region. Eg: first all your A's, then your B's, then C's or something. That way you could set a fixed region and avoid the dialogue box.

    That’s a great suggestion that I had not thought of. Thank you again!
