    Hi im about to buy a region yamaha dvd s540

    However they asked me did i want it multi-region i.e. add £20 extra

    Did a bit of searching on the net and found the following hack

    Does anyone know if this is the hack they would use in the shop and then charge me for it?

    Also is this what retailers normally do i.e. do they also search the net for codes or do they have "some form of official way of making them multi-region?"

    Also will i need to this evreytime i want to have multi region or is it a one time only thing?



    1. Press the Open button on your remote control to open the drive tray
    2. Press the 9 button on your remote control
    3. Press the 9 button on your remote control
    4. Press the 9 button on your remote control
    5. Press the 9 button on your remote control
    6. Press the 1 button on your remote control for region 1, the 2 button for region 2, and so on, or 0 for multi-region playback

    many dvd players are now made region free with codes that are easily found on the net. There are some dealers that will do an internal mod but usually its a good bit more than £20. I am sure your dealer will be doing your region free with codes-so save yourself £20 and do it yourself ;) ;)

    Will this keep it region free for good? or will i have to do it each time iwant to view a R1 DVD

    I rang and ordered it anyway, and they really did push the region free hack on me,, I just said i will take care of it myself (they did not seem too pleased mentioned downloading them off the net)


    Tks for that
