    I have just bought a multiregion Sony DVP-NS400D from Hispek. When I got home there were no instructions on the MR upgrade. When I asked how to switch regions I was told that it was done automatically by the software and that I didn't need to do anything on the remote. I also asked about RCE compatibility and was told that whilst RCE disks should work success will vary from DVD to DVD.

    My questions are;

    Does this sound like a multiregion mod or a region free mod.

    If it is multiregion then why would RCE compability vary from DVD to DVD.

    Thanks

    David

    if its auto switching region, then more than likely it won't do RCE, as this requires a machine with manual capability.

    Due to the way RCE works, a player can only be "1 region", otherwise the nice world map comes up.

    Can't really say that as my Sony 725 techtronics mod is auto-select and that deals with RCE no problems.

    I understand this is because they modify the player to make it think it is region 1 as default and it will then change when a R2 dvd is put in. Rather than the other way round.
