    Just bought a Toshiba SD-900E dvd player from Krish AV for £499, last one. Seemed to be the only one available new for this price from any retailer. LEconcepts, Empire, Techtronic all sold out.

    For an extra £30 they will do a software modification to make it multi-region. They say it's not a firmware upgrade, region 0 change or chip mod. Also say it will make the player fully RCE compatible.

    Really happy to have got one of these excellent dvd players at this price.

    Does anyone out there know about the software mod that is done on this model for multi-region?

    Thanks Messiah

    I'm pretty sure other forum members have had a variety of mods done on their Toshiba SD-900E's. Some who bought from LEconcepts found scratches on the case where it appeared that the mod had been a chip. Others say the dealer did a software mod which I think is also known as multi-mod.

    Krish AV assure me the player will be multi-region and RCE compatible without having to do the R1 disc change bypass.

    I can't find anything on the Net re software mods. Both mine are multi-region but with a few of the RCE titles I still have to do the R1 disc swap. Not with all mind you. Why not see if you can't barter with Krish as when LE Concepts had them they were MR for £499.99 IIRC.

    Tried but think they knew that they probably had the last one and there's much interest. Would've been easier if they were in plentiful supply.

    Guess it's a case of spending £30 then :( Shame you didn't post a wanted here as they come3 up now and again and I'm just about to sell one of mine, having upgraded to an 868.

    I'm a bit wary spending a lot for something second hand just in case something went wrong early on and of course I wouldn't have any guarantees.
