    I've just become the proud owner of a Marantz DV6600, which was sold as Multi Region, but, as I don't yet own any non R2 DVDs, I can't test it. Does anybody out there know if there is any way to tell if it is set to multi region? I understand that it can't be set using the remote.

    Without trying a disc from another region there is no way to be sure.

    I would try the following procedure which is for the DV7600. It may very well Work for the DV6600

    1. Open tray.

    2. Press Clear, 2, 5, 8, 0, Clear.

    3. The display indicates, “test mode” press down with the cursor until 1215 is
    displayed press 13 then enter.

    4. Display will now show 1213.

    5. Move the cursor up until 1402 is displayed then press 0, 0, enter.

    6. Display will now show 1400.

    7. Power off then on.

    Hi EdIngley,
    Did you buy the unit private sale or from a shop?
    I can give you lots of advice but i need to know where you bought it from.
    Merry Christmas by the way.
    Regards,
    John.

    I bought it on ebay with an SR4001 receiver. It was claimed to be MR, but at the moment I have no way of telling if it is. Any help would be much appreciated.

    CrustyLoafer. Tried the initial button press, but nothing happened, so I guess it's not the same. Thanks
