Re: blu ray player for region A1

So is there another type of converter that would solve the problem?
Well, if you are looking at bringing over a US powered device, you will need a step down converter [1]

I don't know for sure. I might just have to take the risk. In the specifications of the DVD that I want to buy it does say "region A/1".
If you are not sure that you want the A/1 region encoding, why are you going through the effort of getting it over from the US. In Europe BluRays (if encoded) will be region B, while DVDs are region 2. It would mean that you are unable to purchase or borrow disks locally. I've not looked in a long time, but you were able to pick up region free players here a few years back, where you would avoid messing about with the power, and would play disks from any region. This is what I've done, but over the past couple of years it's barely been used as there are so many streaming options available.
