    Apparently there is no software hack for the E55 but I did see somewhere that you can "rent" a remote from somewhere that zaps the box and makes it multi-region. I believe it's about twenty quid.

    Trouble is I can't remember where I saw it (on the net somewhere)

    I haven't used a service like this before but I found a link after doing a Google to http://www.panasonic-remote-hack.co.uk/

    Sounds straightforward and it's a 'use once' remote. As I said, never used it, but thought I'd provide the link.

    I found this elsewhere... via google..

    It should work for a similar model, the DMR-E55
    ====
    DMR E-30

    Multi-Region:

    Turn On player with no disc inserted
    While pressing Shift on the remote press Setup
    Press Enter twice
    Move the cursor to Other
    Enter the appropriate four-digit region setting, beginning with 000
    Press Enter
    Press Return twice
    Switch unit Off for at least 3 seconds

    I tried to try it (!!) but unfortunately the remote control does not have a shift key.... so we fell at the first hurdle there!!
