    Can anyone help me with the following problem.

    I have a US Samsung N501 player which works fine playing region 1 disks (NTSC) on my NTSC/PAL TV.

    What I want to do is play region 2 PAL disks. There is a region hack for the player, but I still can't get it to play my region 2 PAL disks, I assumed that since most region free european players can play PAL and NTSC that a US player would be able to play NTSC and PAL.

    Can anyone confirm that they have managed to get a PAL region 2 disk working on a US player. Or give me any help at all with hacking this player. I'm trying to do the AIWA remote hack...

    Perhaps I'm not doing the hack right?

    Cheers :confused:

    I think I've seen, in another post, that it's a bit risky buying US players, not all of them have the PAL playback capability. Whilst it will play back Region 2 disks it will only play back NTSC R2 disks, which I think are Japanese!

    Oh dear,

    This is not good news. I'll trawl through and try to find the thread if its not been archived.

    Cheers.
