    Thanks for yours. I have seen this solution on a website.
    But I don't have any PALM! And how it supposed to work with BD player?
    Where I supposed to install "OmniRemote Pro V2.01"?
    Can I use a laptop? (I can connect it to my TV.)
    These codes... Is one line one code?
    Can something be done using remote control?

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    I asked for unlocking solution for "Pioneer BDP-51FD" and was directed tohttp://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thi...
    Can not accept this as I do not have any PALMs. Can "region free" be made using remote control? Laptop connected to TV? Anything else?
    Thank you.

    Thanks for your advise.
    I don't have any PALM, PDA or Harmony remote. Checked prices for Harmony RCs. Cost like new dvd player! How it can be done by using laptop computer? Thanks.

This is the only Blu-ray player that can be made region-free.You will need a professional and fully programmable service remote, like Harmony or a Palm or PDA that can support Omniremote software. The procedure may look complicate if you have not done anything similar before. You will have to reprogram the remote codes and control the BRD playere using a PDA or a computer. You can do the same using an Harmony remote or any programmable IR controller. Many shops do the same service for a small fee.

Print this out and follow instructions here.

For example using OmniRemote™ Pro V2.01 and a Palm
1. Install the OmniRemote on the Palm, or PDA.
2. Copy the current Category to the Palm memo pad
3. Modify the "Button name-0" data with the following code:
0000 0067 0000 0044 0155 00ac 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0404 0155 00ac 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0404
4. Import the database in omniremote
5. Turn on the DVD Player. Press newly programmed 0 button on the palm. The Palm will control the DVD, and the DVD Player will turn off and on again. On restart it will be region free.

    You cannot do this using a laptop because most laptops usually do not have built in programmable IR transmitter.


    If your laptop has a programmable IR device, like a PDA, you can store code above into device and program a remote button on laptop.


    The only alternative is going to a repair shop and having the BRD player unlocked for about $20. They will do the job using a programmable remote or a PDA. That is the only way to unlock this unit.

For use with a PALM:

2. Export the current Category (should be TV) to the memo pad
3. Modify the "Button name-0" data with the following code:
0000 0067 0000 0044 0155 00ac 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0404 0155 00ac 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0404
4. Import the database in omniremote
5. Turn on your DVD Player. Press 0 on the palm. DVD Player turns off and is now region free.

If you own a Logitech Harmony, you can send the OmniRemote codes to Logitech and let them convert it for you.

DVD players usually are locked to a Region code and cannot play DVDs from other regions unless the DVD player has its firmware changed to Region Free.

Laptop dvd drive region locked in R1, need to be mostly R2


keep in mind you can only change the region 5 times and cannot change it anymore after that (regarless to windows reinstallation , its a hardware thing) you might wanna consider purchasing "dvd region free" or use a 3rd party region free firmware to bypass that

y DV-220KV-K, which is sold as a Multi Region DVD player has locked up on me. The following message comes onto the TV screen...

Pick out any one of these!

I am unable to change the dvd regional setting to australia (4)but the list says i have one change left


Do you know where to change the region setting?
If not go to the Device Manager - click on DVD/CD-ROM Driver - then right click on your DVD drive, and click on Properties then DVD Region. You can change your region you require.
If you cannot change the region and the region is locked or you have run out of changes, you can install Region Free software on your computer that allows you to play DVDs from any region.
There may be freeware available on the Internet (do a Google search), but I use DVD Region Free from www.dvdidle.com
it costs a few dollars but I have no problems with it, my DVD drive is locked on Region 1.
There are firmware upgrades available for DVD drives that make them region free, but if you make a mistake with the wrong firmware update then your DVD drive is now a piece of junk.

I have american ps3 can i play europian gams on it (ntsc/pal?????)


Like the PSP, the PlayStation 3 is region free for gaming. All games available for the PlayStation 3 are region free, however backward compatibility modes (ie. PlayStation 1 and 2 games) are region locked. Blu-ray Disc and DVD region codes are also enforced.

Need to make laptop notebook packard bell dvd region free locked on o1


You can only change the region code up to 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play any region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

PS3


Unfortunately not, as it stands the only thing the PS3 is region free on is the games. All regional BD and DVD are locked to your region. Even if there was a hack to play region 1 dvd's on a region 2 ps3, sony would patch it up as soon as it was made puclic.

However you could use region free dvd's which will work on the PS3. There is plenty of software for PC which will copy your existing DVD's and remove the region lock. However, I am not sure on the legalities of it.
