    Just bought one of these machines from my local dealer,its listed on their website as rce and 1-6,however when I put in an American dvd it says play Prohibited,have I been stung ? Or do you have to alter the settings in the menu to get it to play ?

    Mine also just switches automatically. I don't think a region free mod would add a menu option to the standard Sony menu.

    Some mods may require you to select the region using the remote before switching the machine on - have you tried speaking to the dealer you bought it from ?

    My dealer said the player needs to be zapped with a code from the shop handset.
    Whats the best way to record your old vhs onto the sony ? is it via the HDD in hq+ mode then onto dvd ? Or straight from the vhs to a blank dvd ?
    Cheers

    If your dealer doesnt sort it just buy a chipped remote from dvdchips.co.uk. Cheap and effortless. My player now plays region 1 automatically.
