    This is my first post here. I have been looking for a cheap yes very cheap solution for a Multi Region player. I live in UAE and my PS3 is Region B so I can play all region B titles but I want to own something for a Region A playback. I searched and searched and came here :) I found that Toshiba is perhaps the most cheap option available but I cant seem to find any list of Toshiba BD players which can be hacked by the remote after the software modification only.

    Can anyone please share a list of all Toshiba BD players which can be hacked by firmware update in order to make then multi region for Blu-Ray playback.

    PS: If you think there is some other solution as well or there are other bd players which can be hacked by remote only please do share that too.

    Best Regards
    Thanks.

    Of the Toshiba models the BDX1200 and BD3200 are the most recent models. There have been reproted some problems with some films on the BDX1200, so I would stay away from that one.

    But I think I would have gone for one of the Asus models. BDS-700 has twin HDMI output while BDS-500 has single.

    Another question please. If I purchase this player and install the region free firmware to make it region free but if after some time there is some new update from Toshiba and I download that will my player still be region free or the new firmware overwrite the region free capability?

    For the Toshiba players, it will probably overwrite the region free capability. The Asus players have the region free capability in their original firmware (at least this far), so here you can upgrade the firmware.

    Same question for the 1300 - can this one be made region-free (for DVDs naturally) using the supplied remote?
