[quote=“jdsmith”]I want to get some old tv shows from Amazon.com but it seems that they are all region 1 only.
How can I watch this stuff here? On my TV?
I beg for mercy from the gee…I mean well informed people in this forum, such as Miltownkid, asI know how he feels now to go into the IP forum.

A regionfree or mult-region DVD player would be the best option. Usually the cheap ones that sell at department stores and 3C shops are multiregion out of the box, branded ones need to be modified which is often hassle and may come at an extra charge. And not all shops will do that for you.
As daasgrrl pointed out there should be no compability issue since the US and Taiwan use both NTSC. I can also confirm that VCDs do not have region coding though VCD picture quality is mediocre at best (IMHO), hence I would prefer DVDs.
