    You can make this multiregion free of charge by searching the forums over at www.videohelp.com. As for latest firmware, the only way to upgrade this is via Pioneer when they launch any new firmwares, a quick look on the support section on their site (www.pioneer.co.uk) will help with that aspect.

    You can can indeed mod it for free without a special remote. If you have a laptop you can do it via its IR port, a PDA, or even a OFA! You will find loads of people that have done it for free on the earlier link (videohelp.com), or you could just pay for a "special remote", your choice:)

    If memory serves, Pioneer never made a firmware upgrade available for the DV565 range, only the newer DIVX models.

    It has problems playing some dvd-a disks pioneer said that it needs a firmware upgrade but there contractor who does the firmware upgrades for them no longer has the firmware for the dvd player, thats why i asked if any one had it,

    also as you said above what is a OFA, The only IR remote i have which i can program is a remote on my nokia 6230
