  • DD means Dolby Digital and the numbers are the number of channels. DD 2.0 is only two speakers, left and right, DD 5.1 is full surround sound, Right Front, Right Rear, Left Rear, Left Front, Center (voice/talking) and the .1 is the Subwoofer. It should still play on your laptop as long as the DVD is region coded for your region. That means that if you are in the US, you are in region 1 and it will play any region 1 coded DVD. The coding is used to prevent purchasing a DVD in one region and sending it to another region to be played there. Not all movies are released around the world at the same time, US could release a DVD before Europe, Asia, etc. Check the region of the DVD, should be on the back side near the bottom.

  • Dolby Digital (Surround sound) 5.1 is 5 speakers Left-Front, Right-Front, Left-Back, Right-Back, Middle on top of the television or behind you and Sub woofer, 2.0 is Left-Front and Right-Front It will be down to the disc to have the Polish Subtitles on it or Polish Audio, it wont be to do with the DvD players sound at all, Also make sure you get the right region (anything from Europe is R2) You dont need to buy a dvd from poland for this as most DvD’s have an Audio and Subtitle feature so you can change them to your needs, means they can sell more

  • DD is Dolby Digital. 5.1 means 5 speakers and a subwoofer (Front L+R, Surround L+R, Centre, Sub) 2.0 means 2 speakers (stereo – L+R)

    I guess it should work.

Lo último que me he comprado ha sido un enrutador para ADSL porque siempre he tenido problemas con los dispositivos que me le han traído, el producto ha llegado a tiempo y por un buen precio el Internet va ahora sin interrupciones.
