    Just purchased above DVD in the UK but multi-region hack does not work.
    Has anyone else had this problem or has a new hack?
    Thanks

    Did you purchase the player from RicherSounds ?. Did they give you the multiregion hack ?. Go back to RS and ask for the correct hack or you could try :

    1. Press the Setup button on your remote control
    2. Press the Next button on your remote control
    3. Press the Stop button on your remote control
    4. Press the Pause/Step button on your remote control
    5. Press the Prev button on your remote control
    6. Press the Next button on your remote control
    7. You should now be in a secret menu where you can change the region from 1 to 6, or All for region free

    Keyboard, The above hack definitely works with the 551. The trick is to memorise the 5 buttons after you're in setup, & then push them in fairly quick succession. No need to go ape**** on it though! ;) Select 'Bypass' once you're in the region menu.

    Is this player any good? I mean picture and sound wise, any software bugs etc.

    Can macrovision be disabled via the remote hack?

    I was offered it as a replacement by RS today for the totally crap Cyberhom AD-L528 and I want to be sure before I take them up on it.

    Picture/sound OK on region 2 - haven't found any software bugs yet.
    At present I don't know whether macrovision is disabled. If I find out will let you know.

    Thanks again.

    Keyboard, did you have any luck with the hack? One thing I forgot to mention; Make sure this is NO disc in when you switch on.

    Arthur S.

    Tried it yesterday and it worked a treat. I think the trick is to be quick and have a proper set of instructions - not those issued by Richer Sounds!!!

    Thanks for your help.
