Hello, I bought a Yamaha DVD S540 from RS a few months back. I am very pleased with the device overall. I paid extra at the time for a multi region version. The chap in the shop said that although they are multi region they only come half hacked and you still need to do a remote hack to activate it. What a load of ****. The remote hack to 'activate' the multi-region upgrade is the same hack as the ones posted on the internet for none-modified S540's ! Looks like all I paid extra for was the photocopy of the hack. Plus.....the flaming thing does'nt work. I bought my first region 1 disc a couple of weeks ago. Jaws. I do the hack - open the drawer, 99990 or 99991 on the remote then close the drawer. Insert disc - wrong region. Some hacks say power off then on after putting in the code - still no good. Has anyone succesfully got their S540 to read a region 1 disc? I am contemplating contacting RS today as I do want to be able to play multi-region. I will be a bit miffed if I have to swap the player though as it is a little cracker. Thanks.
