    Hello. Many apologies if this is posted somewhere else but I am unable to find a hack that works for this machine. I have tried every combination of standby and OSD along with the code 3141592+region code but am unable to get that hack to work on this machine.

    Has anyone successfully performed a remote hack on this machine? If so, how?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Platonicideal

    Correct code that you have to enter through your remote control is 314159+region code ie. 3141590 for region free. Also does anyone knows if this hack still works after firmware upgrade? I am thinking to upgrade firmware on my player but I would like to be sure that I will be able to watch region 1 DVDs after upgrade.

    Hi

    I can't get this hack to work on my Dad's HK DVD22 either. Tried it last night. Unit was in Standby, keyed in the Code etc. Player just says Region Error then spits the disc out.

    Well, it definitely works on my HK DVD22. I did exactly as it is described at www.dvd365.net/?hacks/harmankardon.htm. It is possible that hack doesn't works with models that have new firmware already installed. Could you check the serial number of your DVD? According to HK site " If the serial number of your DVD 22 is from WA0008-16267 to WA0008-29406 or from WA0012-0001 to WA0012-07599" you have old firmware (same as mine and hack should work). I still didn't upgrade my firmware because I'm not sure if hack will work after upgrade. Could you let me know which firmware you have?

    Aha. I'll retry the hack from that link you posted as the info is different. The hack on this Forum site didn't mention holding Clear or pressing the OSD button. :rolleyes: I'll also check the Serial Number.

    Thanks everyone. I finally got it to work. Patience was the key. I have new firmware, not sure if that makes a difference or not, but I had to hold down the power key for about 15-20 seconds before it turned on while holding down clear button. After that it worked as described.
