    thinking exactly the same thing since I stuck between buying the player on-line for circa £600 or spending £750 for the peace of mind on the MR mod and warrantee from a main dealer.

    thx

    Jason t,

    I also found and downloaded this hack (in German) a few days ago.

    Did you use another site to translate the readme file etc? (or do you speak German?)

    Interested in how you proceeded.

    Thanks.

    kaspj.

    Question for Jason T.

    Have you been able to play RCE discs with the firmware change? I currently have to trick my Tosh' into playing them and I don't want to go through that again.

    thx

    Some RCE Titles: Hollow Man, Final Fantasy, Charlie's Angels and I'm sure others can contribute to this list.
