    Hi Anyone point me in the direction or mail me a firmware upgrade for the 506? I have tried the apache upgrade for the DVD25 but it doesn't appear to work for the 506. When I press the clear button on the remote the DVD doesn't switch itself on for example.

    If it is the same as the DVD30 then try this (even if it is not).

    1. Put the machine into standby.
    2. Hold down the clear button on the remore for 2-3 seconds only.
    3. Enter 314159 on the remore, then the region(1-0)

    The machine turns itself on and it should work.

    · Ensure there is no disc in the tray.

    · Press OSD (On Screen Display) to bring up the screen menu. The first menu is the required one. Any other menu option will fail to allow the code change to take place.

    · Enter the code 314159(region) = (1234560, 0 = All Regions)

    · Screen reverts to background graphics.

    The player will now run the required region code.

    That works thanks.

    Don't suppose anyone knows of a firmware upgrade that'll make the player permenantly region free? Seems a pain to have to use the remote code every time on a £250 player.

    In answer to my own question that code permenantly changes the player to that region untill such time as you re-enter the code and change the region.

    Many many thanks.

    Serpico,

    Will the Region hack allow you to play RCE discs?

    I believe so. I'm not sure if I have any RCE disks to check.
