    so you're telling me that there is not a crack code to allow for a change of region code for this dvd player? I have another player at home that I set to region 0 and now I can play any movie I want on that one. We really need to do the same with the Panasonic SA-PT560.

    Please advise. (btw, I am having trouble understanding your post. what do you mean by "connect the multi-tap"?

    I need a crack code for a Panasonic SA-PT560 dvd player. I have another player at home that I was able to set the region to 0 and now I can watch all of my movies. We need to do the same with the Panasonic we have at our restaurant as many of the the regulars come from different countries and we want to watch our various favorites together. Please help.

    So you are saying that there is not a crack code to change the region in this DVD player? I was able to set the region to 0 on another player and I can play all my movies at home on it. We need to do the same for this Panasonic SA-PT560.

    Also, what is the "multi-tap" that you are referring to? I am having trouble with understanding your instructions.

    Thank you for your help.

Re:"I need a crack code for a Panasonic SA-PT560 dvd player. I have another player at home that I was able to set the region to 0 and now I can watch all of my movies. We need to do the same with the Panasonic we have at our restaurant"

There is no hack code for this unit. Hack codes exist only for a limited set of DVD/BRD player. Most new players cannot be made region free with a code.

The region hack is infact generally not supported by manufacturers. Region hack is not illegal only because this option has not been considered by international courts (and also thanks to the work of consumer protection orgs).

Some model uses an hidden region programming manufacturer to reduce production cost, but many units haven't this feature.
The unit that do not allow code programming to change region (most new BRD for example) can only be made region free by replacing the chip.

Next time you get a new player, get it region free, or get info on possible region hack procedures for specific model before buying.
Region hack is not illegal, but it is not endorsed my manufacturers, that do their best to build as more not-hackable units as they can without rising the market price (differentiate region chip production costs them more).

Here a chip hack for this unit. That will invalidate warranty:Panasonic SC-PT560 SA-PT560.

Also here the region hack for older Pana of same series, it is not reported as working on your model.

Regards.

Hello,

the solution you require for can not be possible it can only be operated at a different time .

what you are to do fix up the similar solution to the game is to connect the set with an RF wire properly into the input unit then search for the station on each tv then connect the multi- tap (region)to the one of the system the you will be able to asset (view)them at a time .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

How to unlock the DVD component of our blu ray player so that we can play multi Region DVDs


You didn't mention make and model of player. However, try videohelp.com to see if there is a region reset or unlock for your player there (it will usually reset it unlock entire player, not just DVD part only). Easiest way is go to google, type in make one model of player, the word "region" and "videohelp.com"

Changing dvd region codes


You can't change the DVD coding. That part is how the DVD is recorded. However, your Mac will play DVDs from another region. It just typically defaults to one region. I have deleted the DVD player software (and preferences files) before and reloaded it to play DVDs from another region. If you plan to regularly play DVDs from multiple regions, you might want to look for special DVD software that will read DVDs from multiple regions.

Region free code for LG BH7520


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 am looking for multi zone crack for Pioneer BDC-TD04 (Sony Vaio laptop) Blu Ray drive, suggestions?


DVD REGION FREE & BLUE-RAY REGION FREE
To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region andPasskey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There areseveral available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.

Philips 7" DVD portable player


The PET702 will be a region 5 machine, whereas the UK DVDs are region 2.

DVD players from a particular region are designed to play only DVDs from the same region, due to copyright and distribution rights in each country or region.

However the PET702 can have the region protection removed by making it multi-region:

Switch on the PET702 and Open the tray.

Press SETUP button on the remote control, which will bring up the menu.

Highlight "PREFERENCES" and press OK.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [2], [5], [2], [3], [1], [5], [LEFT], [DOWN]

The screen will show: "Region Code: 2"
Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR [0] for multi-region.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [SETUP] to exit winksmiley.gif

You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.

This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.

Programmed for region 2....Need to change to 1


Q: What is Regional Coding enhancement(RCE)?
A: It's a digital enhancement added to some Warner Bros and Columbia DVDs to stop region 1 (R1) DVDs from playing on Region-free DVD players.

Q: What's the difference between Region Coding and RCE?
A: Regional Coding enhancement(RCE) is an additional layer of protection which some studios have placed on select REGION 1 DVDs to prevent them from playing on region-free or multi-region players. Region Coding is a part of the DVD spec which divides the world into 8 regions:
Region 1: U.S., Canada, U.S. Territories
Region 2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East (including Egypt)
Region 3: Southeast Asia and East Asia (including Hong Kong)
Region 4: Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean
Region 5: Eastern Europe (Former Soviet Union), Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea, and Mongolia
Region 6: China
Region 7: Reserved
Region 8: Special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, etc.)

Basically, DVDs released in each region will typically only play on players sold in that region. IE a DVD released in the UK *Region 2* would not play on a player sold in the us *Region 1*. You can tell what Region a DVD is coded for by looking at the back of the box for a Globe with a number on it. The number correlates to the region list above. If a DVD is listed as 'Region 0' it means that it isn't coded for any region and should play on ALL regions players.
