Hi, living in the USA, I haven't had a chance to see you perform. Since in another post, you already said you may do a TV special here in the next few years, I wanted to know if there are any places to get a video of the TV specials you have already done?

Thanks,
Shane Wiker

I don't know if Inside your Mind is on region 1 (I don't even know if UK and US are different regions!) but you can get region free dvd players, and Inside is a collection of scenes from the tv specials. Smile

No, not easy. Suggest you ask around for NTSC versions of the shows that people may have. Sorry...

Inside Your Mind (order from Amazon.co.uk) will play on all Macintosh computers running System X, and most PC's, too, I suspect.

Is US money the same as UK money? if not how do I convert. What I mean by that is how much is twenty US dollars, in the UK. Thanks in advance.

Hi Matt,

Currently, the rate is about 1.8 dollars to the pound. That means, one pound translates to approximately $1.80. Thus, 20 pounds is about $36.00. (Yeah, I know it blows, but at least they're not charging you VAT... unless it includes VAT, then you can start crying now...)

UK prices are inclusive of VAT if the company is registered to charge it.

I'm going to try and cover everything, so I beg of you, please be patient.

Region Codes and their designated areas:

1: the U.S., Canada and other U.S. territories
2: the UK, Mainland Europe, The Middle East (inc. Egypt), South Africa and Japan
3: Southeast Asia and East Asia (inc. Hong Kong)
4: Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central and South America, Mexico and the Caribbean
5: Eastern Europe(former Soviet Union), Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea and Mongolia
6: China
7: Unassigned region
8: Special International Venues (Aeroplanes, Cruise ships)

thanks to dvddemystifyed.com for clarification.

NTSC and PAL/SECAM colour Formats

I'll direct you here:
http://www.dvddemystified.com/dvdfaq.html#1.19

as I personally have only had to deal with PAL format dvds and broadcast material. In a nutshell, PAL dvd players will accept both colour formats, NTSC dvd players usually need a colour converter (PAL is encoded at higher resolution than NTSC, NTSC players can't handle the higher resolution) Your TV will also need to handle PAL aswell.

Overriding Region Codes

Overriding region codes is another matter. On a PC, all it involves is a software patch, on a Mac, it's a little more complex(check Google). Some hardware-based dvd players can be unlocked so that any region dvds can be played....i'm not sure about the process on PS2s and X-BOXes, as they're more stringent about which colour format they play(check Google).

Multiregion and RCE

It is illegal for any manufacturer to supply Multiregion dvd players, but not dvd players that can be tweaked to accept discs to any region......this was fine intil the introduction of Region Code Enhancement (otherwise known as RCE or REA) which will refuse to play on tweaked players. This shouldn't be a problem with Inside our Mind though.

Currency Conversion

I always use http://www.xe.com for currency conversion, at present US$1 = £0.55

Importing Inside Your Mind

Amazon.co.uk - £6.97 + £1.45 P+P(to UK)/ US$12.50 + US$5.52 S+H (to U.S.)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN......-3592652

that's the best place I've found.....Good Luck.
