good old phone - I loved mine till the battery died and the company wouldn't pay £15 to repkace the battery but paid £150 for a new phone...Unfortunately I dont think so. The only other device I have with IR on it is my (don't laugh) mobile - Nokia 6310i
I've checked out firmwareinfo.com but I don't feel comfortable with their business practice.It turns out, there is an alternative to firmwareinfo.com: TPS ON-LINE. They answered my email in a helpful, prompt and friendly manner. Just email them, stating your precise device name (i.e. what you would put in the application for firmwareinfo) and ask if they would sell you just the modified firmware enabling multi-region blu-ray.
Lets stop throwing money at firmwareinfo.com with their ridiculous business practice and buy from somebody with proper business etiquette.
