Multi-region with Panny DMP-BDT310 and Sony BDP-S780


Active Member
I need to choose a 3D compatible Blu-ray player pretty soon, and am considering either Panasonic DMP-BDT310 or Sony BDP-S780. I will be going for multi-region for the DVD feature which the retailers configure. I am concerned because these players frequently download firmware upgrades. Will the multi-region hacks be overwritten with the firmware upgrades, therefore requiring me to get the player re-hacked?

I'm think the Sony players maintain their region hack across firmware upgrades (but I'm not certain).

Why not ask the guys here. They have been performing hacks on both the players you mention for some time...

The dvd multi region remote hack hasn't been affected by firmware updates yet, but that's not to say they won't in the future.
