Has anyone tryed playing this film on a software hacked 709?, if so was it succefully played?
Currenlty there is a list of players that are incompatible with RCE (Regional Code Enchanement) on www.dvdreview.net.
They talk in this month issue that The Patriot(R1) does work on Pioneer 626 with an additional Hack! Anyone know what this is?
Before clicking submit I decided to have a look
Good news for owners of the Pioneer 626 DVD player with a Techtronics upgrade. We tested the new hack with The Patriot disk and it worked like a dream. If you have a 626 with a Techtronics region free mod then simply follow these instructions:
1. Insert a non-RCE Region 1 disc.
2. Wait until the menu screen appears then eject the disc.
3. Remove the R1 disc and replace with The Patriot. The disc will now play.
According to the Techtronics website most Pioneer models will only play The Patriot using this particular hack.

I've just watched a R1 Patriot on my DV-717 and no problems whatsoever (Techtronic) a
bit of a corny movie - but all the better knowing that RCE doese'nt seem to work on my player first attempt.
Quote from HCC News -
"Michael McGreevy, meanwhile, informs us that his Aiwa handset-hacked Samsung 709, with firmware rev. 3.27, plays The Patriot with no problems. Keep 'em coming."
So it would seem that the hack works.
