Hello to All. (new member)
I just got an Onkyo DV - SP506 and I was wondering if there is a way to change the region code to play all regions for this player. ( I have a few region 1's from when I was studying)
Thank you in advance.

I considered buying this before I bought Pioneer DV-LX50 a few days ago, but dropped it because the company that imports Onkyo to Norway said it "can't be unlocked easily, I'll have to check further with Onkyo if it can be done through a service job"...

Do you have any progress on

Found it! It was not a so big secret and that's fare. The DV-SP506 can be set up to the region of choice.
Didn't see any reply though ...

Yes, and even though I haven't tested -but I'm sure of it as the source is Onkyo service manual of the DV-SP506. You don't change it as "all region" you just select the region you need:
1. It requires to have the RC-484M remote control that is not the one that comes with the SP506. The one that comes with the DVD is the RC-657DV.
2. You can change the region code using the RC-484M remote:
a) turn on power and "No Disc" condition
b) Press "DVD" and "2" keys at the same time on the 484M
c) Press "Return" key -> displays REGION MODE
d) Press "1" for region 1, etc.
---> MDD1N: "1", MUP2P:"2", MUT3P:"3", MUK3N:"3" (also), MUA4P:"4".
;)
