Default Multiregion DVD Player in Edmonton?

Does anyone know where you can get a Multireigion DVD Player anywhere in Edmonton?

I usualy send my brother over a few UK DVD's for Xmas and he has problems playing them. So this Xmas I want to get him a player that will play all the DVD's I sent.

They are all over the place here in the UK, but when I have been over to Canada, I had trouble finding any..

The cheapo ones in Wal-Mart are multiregion (search the forum for specific models, some with and some without hack), and London Drugs sell multiregion ones straight out of the box. Stick with the no-name ones, they're more likely multiregion than the big brands.

I recently bought an RCA247N in Walmart for $49. It plays DivX & XViD as well, and can be made multiregion by typing in a code on the remote - although you need to do this every time you want to watch a UK disc.

I also have a LiteOn DVD recorder which I cannot remember if I typed in a handset code or updated the firmware. Anyway, it plays UK discs fine!
