    Does anyone know of a region hack for the ALBA DVD50?

    My mum wants it so she can borrow all my r1/r3 dvds.

    I have had a look but cant seem to find one anywhere :(

    can anyone lend any insight as to if its possible or not? otherwise i'll just get her a new multiregion player as an early birthday present or something.

    if you repeatedly press "1" (maybe other keys as well) while the DVD is loading it (non Region 2 disk) continues to play

    However the message "Wrong Region" remains in the top corner of the screen while the movie plays

    lol this works but and without the 'wrong region' showing, as I've just found out, much to the hilarity of my mate, the remote doesn't work and the only way I could get it to stop playing was to eject the disk! :blush:

    Can anyone confirm whether this works? Will add it to our list if it has.
