As delivered this recorder will only play dvds for region 2 and I would like to be able to play dvds from any of the 6 global regions.
I understand this is possible but so far I have not been able to find the means of doing so for this model - any help out there ?

Region free hacks
this page you can find everything about region hacking your player. As
this site was also the place where the generic Panasonic DVD player
region hacks originated from, it also covers almost any other Panasonic
NoThese days most of the companies are producing Region 0/ALL DVDs If you can get them OR buy a dual region DVD i.e. Region 2/4 which can play on both the regions. Most of the DVDs produced in India are multiregions. Choice is yours now
DVDs are region coded. This means that they will only play on a DVD player from the region the DVD was produced to be watched in. For example, an Australian DVD is Region 4. It will only play on a Region 4 player. If you try to play it on a player that is set for a different region, it will probably not play. One way around this is to get hold of a multi region player. These are widely available. Alternatively, you should be able to watch the DVD on your computer, although you may need some region free software if your computer's dvd player has been locked. Usually computer DVD players will allow you to play DVDs from any region a few times and then they will lock to a particular Region Code. If you are in North America, you will need a PAL player. The only other thing you may be able to do is to unlock your existing player to convert it to region free. Many DVD players can be unlocked but you would need to find the unlock information for your paticular player. Hope this helps....

regions on request.This needs to be done by an
Authorised Service Centre, as a special service remote is
used.Once delivered to one of these
agents, the service company will charge the fee to Panasonic
If you're not in NZ, try contacting Panasonic in your own country. Just call up www.panasonic with your country code after eg. US = .com and NZ = .co.nz. It seems a *lot* easier than all those complicated hacks on the net. Now all I have to do is work out how to disconnect my DVD recorder again, and try to
