For anyone looking for a multiregion hack for these recorders, try this: 1. Turn the recorder on at the power button on the front panel. DO NOT OPEN THE TRAY! 2. QUICKLY press: Blue - Play - 159121212005255 - Play - Standby 3. Enjoy multiregion playback If this does not work the first time you try it, repeat the procedure but faster. Speed is the trick here. RCE discs will NOT playback.
