Did you have any joy finding a hack?

Sorry for the delay in answering.
no i havn't found the hack for this machine, it appears that there isn't one. shame. i have now used dvd shrink to make copies of all my region 1 dvds so as i can play them on this machine.

i dont know if you are familiar with dvd shrink, if not you can download it from http://www.esnips.com/doc/94d1e209-484d-40a7-9a86-5669621bd9c3



it is able to bypass the copy protection and make a near perfect region free copy of any dvd from any region :lesson:
