Blu-Ray Player Multi-Region Hex Codes

There are a number of threads about DVD multi-region hacks for various Blu-Ray players already running. However they all seem to be specific to owners of Logitech Harmony Remotes or require purchasing one of the One-For-All remotes which does not help those who use other remotes such as the Pronto Professional and Nevo ranges. I have now purchased one of these One-For-All remotes, programmed it up and have learned all the codes onto the shop's Pronto.

Now that I have all the codes I thought I'd create a thread which listed the raw hex codes required for multi-regioning a range of Blu-Ray players. These codes can be used by almost anyone with a reasonable decent programmable remote including the Harmony models. I thought this would be a much more useful way of presenting the data so that almost everybody can use it.

These commands will make the players multi-region for DVD discs only, not Bluray discs. A hardware modification, AKA "chipping", which invalidates any warranty is required to make Bluray players multi-region fior Bluray Discs.

I have fully tested all of these commands in store and can confirm that they all function perfectly.

If anybody has fully tested hex commands that will do other machines that I have not listed then feel free to post them.

Info: There are a series of five separate codes required for this hack. They each need to be output in numerical order with a one second gap between each command. Ideally you should create a macro sequence on your remote which inserts this one second gap automatically.

Info: There are a series of ten separate codes required for this hack. They each need to be output in numerical order with about a half a second gap between each command. Ideally you should create a macro sequence on your remote which inserts this half a second gap automatically.

*********** top post, great info, many thanks ***********Do you mean half a second between the 10 macros, or between each HEX value

There are not ten macros there, there are ten indivudual codes. each of those long strings of hexadecimal digits is a single remote code.

You need to put a half a second gap between each of the ten codes.

If you program a single button press to perform all ten of those codes in sequence that is what is called a macro.

Here's a thought - wonder if there is any software out there that can use a PC's IrDA port (or IrDA serial port module) to pull off the hack...

Whats the easiest way of inputing the hex code to the harmony please?

Whats the easiest way of inputing the hex code to the harmony please?

To respond without trying to sound too condescending I really wouldn't know as I don't really get involved with Harmony remotes as I find them a bit limiting. I have far more experience with the Nevo and Pronto Professional range of remotes.

I am sure that there are many other forum members on here who can advise on the exact procedure on how to use direct hex codes with the Harmony range of products. I am fairly certain that they can be used but just not exactly sure on how you go about it.

You have to email them to Logitech support and ask them to add them to your account :smashin:

AFAIK There is no way to do it yourself.

Please tell me you are joking, that is ridiculous if that is correct.

If so, then I fully stand by my condemnation of the Hamony range in favour of the Nevo and Pronto Professional products that I know and love.

If this is really the case that you cannot directly input discreet hex codes into a Harmony remote then they are fundamentally flawed products in my opinion.

Admittedly it is a pain, but I have had several Prontos in the past and overall I prefer the Harmonys, particularly the One, to any of them.

It's not that big a deal. Logitech CS usually add them within a couple of days and it's not very often you need to add these commands because their existing database is so comprehensive.

Many thanks for the Panasonic BD35 codes, very handy for my friend (and potentially myself (no player yet)). Being completely cheeky..:rolleyes:..does the pioneer codes also work for the BDP-51FD?

I've not had the opportunity to test the Pioneer code with the BDP-51, however I can tell you that it does not work with the BDP-LX08.

Hi,

Stupid Question Coming Up?

I own a very old Pronto RU940 remote, which has been stuck in a drawer for some years, but still works. Unfortunately I am a Mac user and am therefore unable to connect it to the Pronto.

If I were to manually programme the Pronto with the appropriate code (LX71) above with a half second gap between each, would it work?

Ah, excellent, I think this topic might have just saved me having to purchase an OneForAll :)

I wanted to use my Windows Mobile phone (an HTC Prophet) and the IR remote Control NoviiMedia software. And the hex codes were just what I needed!

Just got to fiddle a bit to set it up, and then try it out on my Sony BD-S350 tonight.

If it works I'll post back here and maybe even include the Novii codebase file for anyone else who wants it.

I'm not sure if you can program Prontos with hex codes directly without a computer, I very much doubt it.

Also, there are no gaps needed for the Pioneer hack as it is just a single command. As I have already explained to someone else on this thread earlier, each of those longs strings of hexadecimal numbers is a single remote command. Only the hacks for the Sony and Panasonic require multiple commands in a sequence which are quite clearly listed in the first post as separate commands.

Just to follow up on my earlier post.

Hacking the BDP-S350 worked first time using my Windows mobile phone (running WM 6.1 if anyones interested) and the NoviiRemote Deluxe 4 demo install (available as a self installing cab file here ). Its a time limited but fully featured free demo. You get 10 days of functionality... more than enough ;)

I created a new template for a TV (doesnt seem to matter what you actually pick) and then edited it, editing the first 5 numeric buttons and pasting the relevant hex code into each buttons properties. Saved, pointed my phone at the player and pressed 1 to 5 in sequence.

Worked first time. 24p light flashed. Job done. :)
