    All the rage on here 10 years ago but is anyone still uing one and if so to play what?

    I have just acquired an LG BH200 (US import) and already have a Samsung used occasionally for HD DVDs (I have over 150 discs) and Region A Blurays in the last 3 months. Over the next month or two I will be running a comparison between them to decide which to keep in main stack and which to relegate to my office or bedroom.

    I am looking for the multiregion hack software and 0702 driver for the LG but all the links I have found so far are dead so does anyone have either current valid links or a copy I could have? Still reading through the epic threads on AVS Forums.

    I think I have now found the multiregion hack software but am still looking for the 0702 driver.
    Will install and test over the next few days.

    If this works then the Samsung will be the relegated box.

    I have both, but haven't used either for a few months, if i get time on the weekend i'll plug 'em in to see what firmware the LG's on, although i'm pretty sure i made it region free, i can't remember how:facepalm:
