    After reading this entire post and searching the depths of internet I cannot find a way to make my SC-HT650 region free by any means. After al the warnings I am scared to try the IR codes that are mentioned here. Can anyone here help me with this seemingly impossible task?

    I take it you are alluding to the last two lines of their application instructions, where one has to state whether one's TV supports NTSC and/or PAL via HDMI.

    If that's the case, let me tell you that I actually included those informations in an earlier application I sent to them.

    I somehow got blocked at firmwareinfo as well, even though I hadn't done anything yet (I had not even sent in an application). I registered last weekend. The only thing I can think of that would trigger this was that I fixed a typo in my model number (I accidentally wrote GE instead of EG for the region). As soon as I did this, my account was disabled. I promise nothing malicious was intended, it was a simple typo. I double-checked when I was preparing my application in order to make sure I followed the rules exactly, noticed the error and corrected it.

    The account name is the same as this one (TheBlackCat). I sent an email to the support address last weekened but never heard back, and the account is still gone and the email address still blocked.

    Only DVD MR - not BD MR of course and can be done cheaper yourself - though probably not easier :)

    Hi guys,

    new to the forum. Wanted to see if you guys had any success cross installing the 'enhanced' firmware (ie. if the MAC address really makes difference) ?

    Me too got kicked out of soup n@zis firmware house - for simply asking a question.. Anyway would be interesting to hear about your results.

    Hi,
    I had no problem...after being booted once ;-). I just gave them the exact information they wanted & received the firmware.

    Also, I recently updated my firmware from panasonic & still retained functionality!

    How did you get "un-booted"? I sent an email to the board administrators two weeks ago, but haven't heard back. I don't want to send another because I don't want to be a nuisance.

    Enough is enough! I respect the right of firmwareinfo to allow access to whomever they might desire, but what I cannot and will not counterance is the facsist resembling censorship a number of members have revealed they are imposing on anyone who discusses obtaining firmware. It's effectively Fight club, the first rule of 'firmwareinfo' is don't talk about firmwareinfo! Mr Unkhoff and his cronies are no better than middle school bullies, threatening anyone revealing his dark secrets. Well I for one say no more!

    Hi,
    I was more interested in getting my firmware that discussing ethics or philosophies, so, when I was unmembered the first time, I joined again, and gave them exactly what they asked for, without extra comments/information. I copied & pasted the asked questions/info & wrote the answer after, in the same format. It then worked without problem.

    You were simply able to join again? When I try to do that it says "that email address cannot be used".

    To be honest, it could be that I used another address...

    I wont discuss the behaviour in these guys.. My only remark was the logic in charging 30EUR for a player that costs 90EUR..

    The question still stands - Is the MAC address locked down in "their" firmware - eg rendering it useless for anyone else to use ?

    Call it donation call it charity - are they making a profit on Panasonic IP.

    Did the blu-ray regionfree survive an original Panasonic firmware update? If so, maybe I should take the trouble with trying to get the firmware.

    I got the boot, then re-submitted my application in a simpler manner and was accepted, cool you may say, but as it was late i didn't send the "donation" off straight away, came back the next day to log on and send my "donatiom", but found my account close. I again re-submitted my application, but know it says i'm banned and they have blocked my IP address.
