I've just bought a new spin bike and need to find some spin classes on DVD and/or the 'scenic route' DVDs that make you feel as though you are peddling through Death Valley or wherever. It helps pass the time and the pain threshold. There are plenty of them on Amazon.com but - the kicker - they are all in US/Canada Zone 1 format only. I'm in Zone 4 (Australia). Suggestions?

Thanks for the tips! The technogeek in the family has some kind of super duper DVD player that now won't play a lot of the movies that worked just fine on our old Samsung Rolling Eyes I will retrieve it from the kids' den aka Pit Of Hell.

Edit: The kids say the Samsung is dead. So if I went out and got a $50 special from the local Cash Converters or whatever do you reckon it would work with US DVDs?

Tolin is right, bizarrely the expensive DVD players are choosy about what they play, but the cheap ones will play any region.
We can get DVD players here these days for 40 (AUS$82) and if your excercise bike is in a spare room that's probably the way ahead.

If you cycle in the main lounge, try the Aussie sites for DVDs as Sheboppe said. Or could you maybe pick up a cheap one from ebay.au?

Just make sure to check the spec's wether it's code/region free before you buy it.

Yes it's very absurd that the expensive models, with the fancy features and stuff... can't read it... but the lowcost crapmodels can. Ofc this comes from the fact that many of the big film distribution agencies and well tbh most of the big production companies, also own the high end factories for the dvd players.. so they do it to make more money.. wonder if we could bait them? Wink

@Gnasher
If your interested I can ask a friend of mine about the program he used to hook his bicycle up to the internet. This setup allowed him to display a number of courses on the TV in front of him and actually sped up or slowed down depending on how fast he was pedaling.

Let me get this right, you pedal an exercise bike in front of a TV with scenery, why don't you just get on a normal bike and go for a ride? Laughing

Not sure what the copyright laws are there, but here in the US you are legally entitled to 1 backup copy of your disc if you have a dvd burner on your pc. When doing the backup, you can remove the region of it as well (and this can be done w/ free programs).

Because on the roads around here you will either die from diesel fumes or end up as roadkill in the gutter.

Burning the DVD is a great idea! I knew the Eater tekkies would have a solution. Thanks guys.

@Gnasher: Wouldn't you be just as likely to die from the fumes of a burning DVD? Surprised
