    Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but I've had a hunt around on this Forum and I can't find an answer.

    Anyway, I've just bought this from Ebay:

    OPPO BDP-103 105 USB Region Hardware Kit

    If you click on and enlarge the second image, it shows that it's an external solution that requires you connect one lead to the RS-232 port and the other lead to the USB 2 port. You then use the remote to key in some commands and specify your desired Blu-Ray region before playing your disc, so it seems pretty straightforward.

    What I'm unsure about is:

    1. How safe is it to have a circuit board exposed like that?
    2. Should I cover it up with some duct tape or will that make things worse?
    3. Has anyone bought this item and used it? Any issues?

    Thanks!

    Handle the board by the edges, don't touch the components. Plug it in, put the player back on your equipment rack, and it'll be absolutely fine.

    Wrapping it in tape offers no useful protection for the device. Quite the opposite, in fact.

    Thanks Andy for your advice.

    Do you know what happens if there are any firmware updates? Do I have to unplug the board each time to receive them and if so, which port?

    Thanks.

    Arrived today!

    Plugged it in, switched the player on, followed the instructions and everything works!

    It is just so simple and I now have access to Region A, B and C discs. Highly recommended to anyone who loves their Oppo and is looking for the most cost-effective method to go Multi-Region.
