Just picked up one of these today, lovely player, if anyone is in need of it the multi-region hack is dead easy: 1. Turn on the player. 2. Open the tray. 3. Press the following sequence on the remote: 9-9-9-9-0 (The 0 referring to region) 4. The number 0 will appear on the lower left side of your screen. 5. Your player is now region free! Put in a DVD and enjoy! Only prob for me, is that my TV is so ancient, it plays NTSC in black and white It's just a case of waiting for my 32" Samsung LCD now!!
