Hi I just bought the above DVD recorder but forgot to make sure that I ordered a multi-region version which are available from most on-line retailers. As I dont want to have to go through all the hassle of sending it back. waiting for my refund and placing an order with someone else. I was hoping that anyone out there might know a way to make a R2 710 region free. I have checked these forums and have found a hack for the 510 and will give this a try tonight - who knows it might work but I doubt it. So anyone know of a hack for this recorder?
