    Anyone clear this one up for me?

    In the Home Cinema review for this is states that the unit IS multi region.

    But in the hacks section of this forum there are a coupla posts asking for advice to make it multi region.

    :lease:

    a couple of months late to reply! I bought a Marantz DV-4500. Works v. nicely. However this machine is NOT multiregion. It says it is because it can play "ALL" region discs and Region 2 but not individual regions 1,3,4,5 etc

    I have read one needs to ugrade the firmware using a CD. I have seen the 4400 firmware around but nadda for the 4500.

    I'm going to try my dealer. If he has something, I'll post it.

    99% of dvd players are not multiregion out of the box, and far more now need the firmware updated rather than a couple of button pushes on the remote to make them region free.

    The DV4500 does need to be upgraded by a CD.
