    I have one of these players and I am desperately seeking a region hack as it is region locked.

    The next player from Pioneer in the UK is the LX70a which will have bitstream output for sound formats and a couple of little upgrades. There is no sign of any multi region playback for SD DVD.

    Pioneer Rep said that it's called LX80 and not 70A. Not that it really matters, as a newer/better model will come along a couple of months later (probably)! :smashin:

    I don`t see why not, as Pioneer have used the same DVD OS for some 5 years now, which the Pioneer hack mentioned elsewhere on this forum works fine on. Same applies with the Pansonic BD decks, they use the standard Panasonic SD DVD os so the standard DVD hack works on those.

    I`ve not had a LX70 turn up yet, so not been able to test this, but if anyones got their mitts on one yet then its worth a try and let us know!

    Obviously this only applies to DVD Regional coding, not Blu-ray playback!
