Question about Philips (MCD700) System

1 Answer

Multizone I recently purchased a Philips DVDR3570H and iwas assured by the sales assistant that is was a multizone player, however when i got it home i foung it was not. I conatacted the store from which I bought and again was told it was a multizone player but that i would have to get it chipped. I have contacted a few places that do chip DVD players but they do not deal with Phillips products. I have been told by a couple of them that most new players are designed to be multizone ant that all i need is the code. I have searched the internet trying to find the code to multizone my DVD recorder with no succes, I wonder if you could assist me by directing me to a site or store that could help me. i would be most appreciative. Regards: Scott

I found it somewhere in the Net, and it worked in my case:

1. Turn on the player from the front panel (without a CD/DVD inserted!)
2. Select HOME on the remote and ensure Hard Disk is highlighted
3. Press PLAY
4. Immediately enter 159 121 212 005 255
5. Press PLAY
6. Turn the player off

When you turn it on again, it is multi-regional!

Phililps DVDR5570H only plays zone 4.Is there an unlock code for multizone playback?

Try this:

Models supported:




  1. Power on the recorder
  2. Wait for player to initialise.
  3. Press [HOME] on the remote control.
  4. Press [PLAY / PAUSE]
  5. Key in 1 5 9 1 2 1 2 1 2 0 0 5 2 5 5 – The numbers will appear in the display of the recorder.
  6. Press [PLAY / PAUSE]

If the recorder goes into browser mode during the procedure, then it will need to be re-started from the beginning.

If at any point the recorder is reset to factory settings, then the procedure will need to be carried out again.

Yes, but is easy if you have a A/V Receiver like a Marantz or Yamaha and put in the "MultiZone" Out, in Marantz you can see in your room example a Cable, and in MultiZone a PS3 DVD, 2 outs with 1 source (Receiver).

icon_minipost.gifRegion code hack posted by Tiger1, May 24 2007:

Hi I live in Australia and added this model.

acknowledging: Region code hack posted by ZoidsGodzilla, November 22 2006: for the Samsung DVD-V5600

1. Press the DVD button on your remote (the Samsung logo appears)
2. Press the SUBTITLE button on your remote
3. With your remote enter the code: 76884
4. The current region is displayed on the top left corner of the screen. (e.g. 4)
5. Press 9 on your remote (Region free)
6. Again press the SUBTITLE button on your remote
7. Enjoy the Region free player

If your player is NOT Region 4 by default then you will need to Substitute the Numbers in Step 3 with the ones Below.

Region codes:
RC 1: 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
RC 2: 3, 8, 7, 6, 7 (or 5, 7, 5, 3, 8 )
RC 3: 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
RC 4: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
RC 5: 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
RC 6: 2, 4, 4, 6, 2

For Example if your Player was Purchased in the usa ( Which is Region 1) then Step 3 would read :-

3. With your remote enter the code: 129334
