Your device is designed for playing back region 1. It will also playback disks recorded with a region setting of all. The region setting of the device is fixed. Also it will only playback NTSC, and not PAL . This is also fixed on your unit. Sorry I could not bring you better news. However there are many burning and conversion programs you can use on your computer (ie Nero Vision, ConvertXtoDvd,..) which provide you the optional settings you are looking for, and allow you to burn in the setting you choose, allowing for playback on your Philips device. Good Luck!

I found solution: Go to Google and type - DVD help. There is a site with codes for DVD players. http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/philips-dvp-3260/9309
Just type in the codes by: Press "Setup"
Scroll to "Preference" using the LEFT/RIGHT arrow key
Press "138931" and a pop-up screen will appear.
Use the UP/DOWN arrow key to choose the desired number.

With your set on and without disc in the tray:
1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again
This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.
I've done this to my 3090 and been using it like this for 3 years.
