Default Region Locking on HD DVD ...

Quick question ...

right now HD DVD does not use region coding like DVD and BD.

Is that something that is stipulated in the standard? or is it something that could be added to HD DVD players via a firmware upgrade?

thanks

I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure region coding is built into HD DVD. Its something they just havn't chosen to unlock yet. Personally, I could care less about region coding. HD DVD is shooting theirself in the foot on this issue.

There is no region coding, but CH-HD DVD (the newly agreed HD standard in China) will be locked.
