    Hi guys,

    I've got a philips 958 dvd player and I intend to use the handset hack from here: http://www.dvd.reviewer.co.uk/info/multiregion/full/philips750.asp

    This hack is widely quoted, including on this forum.


    I haven't done this kind of thing before, and would appreciate advice from anyone here who's tried this Philips hack.....

    Any danger of completely fecking up the dvd player ??:blush:

    Does this make the player multiregion, or just region 1 ? (I'm interested in getting region4 discs from an aussie site)


    Any other obs you'd care to make ?



    I don't stray in here very often, post normally on the projector side, but I'd appreciate you help.


    Thanks,



    Sean G.

    I used this hack on my old Philips 750. Worked a treat with all regions. RCE version 2 hadn't been invented then though!

    No longer own it now so can't test it with that, sorry

    I bought a one for all 6 to do the RC6 code.

    If you don't make a mistake with the keying you should be Ok. God knows what would happen if you put the wrong numbers in though!

    Thanks Dave,

    Didn't think about the RCE issue - anyone out there using a Philips dvd player hacked this way ???


    Thanks,

    Yes, one I got from supplier and he took it and did it using an engineer's remote. Also did my sisters using a One for All and recently did my new Q50 and it worked fine. I believe the hack also works on Yamaha kit as the inners are Philips and, I guess, will do the Marantz ones too.

    Go for it !
