    Hi all,

     

    if i bring my DVD players over with me will they work ok. I know that the DVDs over there are a different region to UK but if i also bring region 2 DVD's with me (all the kids films) will they work. Isn't it the DVD player that is restricted?

    Also what about bringing my DVD recorder or do they have something similar to Sky+

    Guest TC for short

    Your DVD player will obviously play the ones you've got so far. It should say on the box or in the instructions whether it's a multi-region player or not. You can get single-region players altered, but it may invalidate any warranty & unless it's a quality home-theatre player is probably not worth the money.

    My recommendation would be to bring it with you. It will tide you over at least for the time being, and if it's not multi-region you can buy a new one out here (they're really not expensive now) & relegate that one to the kids' room, you bedroom or whatever.

    Another reason to bring it - there's starting to be a bit of a tussle between Blu-Ray & DVD. I don't think anyone knows yet which way it will go, but you wouldn't want to be investing in today's equivalent of a Betamax, would you!

    Whichever, don't forget to bring lots of gang-plugs with you. You don't want the hassle of changing gazillions of plugs when you could just change half-a-dozen!

    We brought 2 dvd players and a dvd/tv combo with us from the UK. None of which are multi-region. All of which play dvds bought here no problem.

    Hi all,

    Yep, there is Foxtel IQ which is basically Sky+ (even the remote control is the same), but we also bought all our UK stuff with us (PS2, DVD and VCR), along with a portable TV to play them on, should we need it.

     

    Cheers

    An Effective Way to live through the Harsh "winter"-Financial Depression for Foreign Trade Enterprises Recently I read a lot of articles about "winter is coming", in which many corporations are looking for "cotton-padded jackets" to defend the coldness. Some try to reduce the staff, some process to a brand operation, some shift to the domestic market, while there are some others even carry forward the "Shanzhai Spirit" (Shanzhai, like one of the senses of the word "ghotto" in English-connoting that something is kind of a poorly done, low-class approximation of another thing). So far, I would like to put forward some measures to live through the "winter" for foreign trade enterprises, especially for the CEOs of these companies.1. To build up your confidence. To our foreign trade members, confidence is the most important thing for what we need at present. It is just an instant phenomenon for the reduction of orders and the less of income. In a long way, our society is progressing and the human is also developing. If winter comes, can spring be far behind? We can not be taken in by those who shouted that "winter is hard to live". Otherwise we will be the substitutes of these people. Anyhow, I believe that so long as we can take some proper measures, we are sure to get through this depressed period. So long as we can persist in, a bright future will be drawing near. Who can run first in the winter, who can run faster.2. To save money. It's known to all that if we want to be able to survive in this harsh winter for a longer time, we have to try our best to save every penny. Here I would like to recommend Some suggestions for all my fellows.A. Reduction of personnel is not a wise way for saving money. I find that this way is always the first choice for most managers of foreign trade company. I do think this is quite irresponsible to our employees. These employees have done a lot of contributions and paid their sweat and toil for both the bosses and our companies. While now they are dismissed by our bosses when there's a financial crisis. I think this is not only irresponsible to our employees, but also irresponsible to our society.B. To own less "girlfriends" for most bosses. Most of the bosses usually affiliate with many girls except their own wife. And they always spend more time with these girls than to the employees in their company. My friend, the person who shares the burden and works with you at the moment is the one who sitting beside the computer and now still trying to explore new clients for you. (This suggestion is for some bosses who have a special habit.)C. To be care of the "tragedies of preventing winter" from the internet. The person who said that "winter is coming" or those who shouted that they can help you to "live through the winter" are usually the one who intended to get through by your money. Hereby, I'm suspicious of writing this article. Never believe it easily!Following are some recommendations to save money for my fellows.a. Check the office rent is higher or not. If an office in the middle of the downtown is just for reputation, you'd better change another cheaper one for a while at the moment. The saved money could be enough for several employees' salaries.b. Think about the effect of the foreign trade websites you have devoted a lot of money into. If it still didn't bring any profit for you, then you should think about to stop now. Usually the foreign trade promotion websites from internal demand much more money from their fellowmen than to foreigners. It is better to choose some foreign trade websites of high cost performance if you indeed need to get extensions from the websites.Following are some effective ways for your business extension.http://www.okokchina.com/http://www.sz-wholesale.com/http://www.oneinhundred.com/http://www.wellpromo.com/http://www.mikesearch.com Make sure to be familiar with Skype. Try to use Skype for international phone call as far as possible. In addition, its searching function is also quite useful for finding clients.To join into some industry associations from Europe and the United States is also a good way. The cost for joining these associations is only around several hundred dollars. And these associations from abroad are indeed aiming to offer help to people. We can establish relations with customers through their help.3. To make money. This is the most difficult thing to do. Many articles from websites have offered a lot of ways to earn money. I would like also to suggest some of my ideas.A. Do not try online sales. Which I would like to emphasize here is that online sales will certainly earn some money, but it is very difficult to make money if that is foreign trade. You spend a lot of time and money to set up a website while there is no any sales volume at last. I think that foreign trade companies would better to find a good number of high-level sellers from Taobao (Asia's largest and most secure online trading platform). If you do want to do online sales, then please try to build good relations with these people so that they can be your online sales agents. While you are still acting as doing foreign trade which take charge the goods and the shipping only, and then leave the sales to them. In order to develop end market from abroad, you'd better spend more on Ebay. Try to convince some excellent sellers of Ebay from abroad to help you to sell. In a word, it's better to do your own things which you are good at it. You will feel suppressed if to face real consumers when you have used to foreign trade business.B. Do not develop emerging markets randomly. We all know that the cost for developing of a new customer is much higher than the cost of maintaining old customers. Your own products in the current foreign market have not yet done so deep penetration, it will cost more to develop new market while you are lack of money. Furthermore, financial crisis is global and its impact is widespread. Thus I would like to recommend that it's better to develop deeper and thorough in the existing market. Also we can try to build business relations with second-class distributors from abroad. We can find these customers through a lot of these foreign industry associations or whole-sale websites.
