To add to Benmiur's solution, there are actually a few more steps involved with the OFA (One-For-All)..
Get a One-For-All universal remote that has a DVD key and a
"magic" key, such as the One-For-All-4.
* Select DVD device on OneForAll remote (OFA)
* Hold magic key until double flash on DVD key
* Enter device code 0533
The RDR-GXD500 DVD recorder must be set to command mode
"DVD1", and its own remote set to the same mode like this:
* Switch on recorder and point its own remote at it
* System-Menu -> Setup -> Options -> Command-Mode
* Select DVD1
* Set remote's Command-Mode switch to DVD-1
(it's under the sliding cover)
* Verify that recorder can be switched on and off with
Now program function code 189 into button 1 of the OFA
remote like this:
1. Hold magic button until double flash on DVD key
2. Press 994
3. Press magic button (don't hold)
4. Press 189
For some remotes, all of the buttons you need to reprogram need to be prefixed by 00. So 1 would be '00189'
5. Press 1 - double flash indicates success
Advanced OFA remotes such as the Kameleon have five digit
function codes, in which case, press 00189 for step 4 above.
Now program function codes into buttons 2-5 like this:
* Repeat steps 1-3, then 255 2
* Repeat steps 1-3, then 095 3
* Repeat steps 1-3, then 221 4
* Repeat steps 1-3, then 079 5
Now the actual conversion of the RDR-GXD310 DVD recorder to
* Put DVD recorder on standby and point OFA remote at it.
* Press 12345 - "TIMER OK" is displayed, and recorder
* Press 12345 - Recorder goes back to standby
The RDR-GX310 DVD recorder is now multi-region.

Make sure your Sony input signal is on L1 or L3 (the inputs in back of recorder) or on L2 which is for inputs for cameras(located in front).Once you get a signal, you're where you need to be. Choose your recording mode for recording speed (pull down the flap on the remote control for this button and also the input button).
Choose from between1 hour and six hours. To archive really important stuff, stick with the first 3 speeds. TV recording can be on 3, 4 or 6 hour mode.
Push the record/pause button once. This will put the recorder into the record/pause mode and then it awaits you pushing it again to start recording immediately. Just pushing record will force the machine into a 3 to five second delay before actually recording anything so you might mess up and miss the first few seconds of your input. Suggest you use a dvr-rw or dvd+rw to practice on.
When your recording is done, just push the pause again. It stops recording but allows you to add more on to the first recording without starting a new chapter if you want. Just continue to release the pause button to continue.
If you are satisfied that you are finished, then push the pause button to stop recording. Wait for the info to be written(flashing message on screen). When it stops, you may play the dvd.
Notice- since the dvd has not been FINALIZED, you may only play it back on this unit without finalizing. It will not play on other dvd players unless you finalize it first.
To finalize, look on remote for the TOOL button. Press it once. Now push DISC INFO once. Use arrow keys and enter button on remote for the following. Scroll down to FINALIZE and press enter.
Use arrow keys to scroll to OK. push the ENTER button. Finalizing should take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.
Warning- if titles or chapters are to typed in, it must be done BEFORE finalizing. Finalizing afterwards cannot be done.
Erasing can be done in part or all if using an RW+ or RW- disc
