    I have seen this model advertised as multi region with some retailers. Can someone tell me if it comes multi region as standard or not?

    Modified firmware.

    The Pioneer DVR-530H was rated the best European Digital Recorder at the recent EISA 2005/2006 awards.

    The best current price for a unit pre-modified to be multiregion is £379.

    don't be tempted to try and multi region it yourself if you don't buy it already mr.i bought a disc off a guy on ebay,the firmware update didn't work so stupid me tried it about 3 times,then the machine wouldn't respond,btw the best price for the 530 already multi region is £349 with free shipping & 3 year warranty,but make sure it has already had the firmware update done,as i bought a dvd player from them which wasn't multi regioned,fortunately i only had to input a hack code by the remote http://www.leconcepts.com/dvd_home.htm

    Thank you to all for the info. The cheapest I have seen it is from Empire Direct at £319:82,(there is no mention of multi region) although they don't actually have them yet.
