    Hi Guys,

    I've got a pioneer 525 chipped by techtronics, bought from 7oaks a couple of years ago. Does anyone know if this setup will handle RCE discs? I've heard about a disc swap technique, but what does this invole? Do you have to swap discs at a certain point or anything?

    Cheers,

    Have the same player. You need to put in a non RCE region 1 disk first. Eject it and then put in the RCE disk - should work OK. In theory this techtronic mod give manual region selection - but for some reason it doesn't defeat the RCE system.

    Anyway the disc swap method works fine.

    Thanks Rob, my parentss are bringing me some discs back from the states this week, and i've noticed that a couple on the list have now been announced as RCE, i was just worried that i'd wasted my money.

    Cheers

    I know this is an old thread, but i have a 525 with the mod from TEchtronics and it plays all region discs (including RCE) without changing regions or doing the disc swap routine.

    I can vouch for the previous comment - my Techtronics 525 plays RCE without any fiddling about with discs...PJ

    Edit: Bl00dy 'ell - just noticed how old this thread was! :suicide:
