Re: multi region code for the Panasonic DMR-E55
I've never tried this my self before but i have come across a few websites that say they can do it but you have to pay. I have however come across a free website that doesn't charge www.dvd365.net and this looks like it can do the trick and it looks simple to do. Hope this helps

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
Turn On player with no disc inserted While pressing Shift on the remote press Setup Press Enter twice Move the cursor to Other Enter the appropriate four-digit region setting, beginning with 000 Press Enter Press Return twice Switch unit Off for at least 3 seconds
and here are some other HACKS for your players
like Macrovision bypass ISCSI BAYPASS ETC
In Australia you can contact the nearest Panasonic service agent and, according to service consultant on the telephone, they will fix it to multi region in about 15 minutes at no cost. Only catch is you have to take it to them and that might be an across city trip.
You can't do it in normal operation. This region business is part of the copy protection scheme required by the motion picture industry's agreement with the DVD recorder manufacturers. You can change your recorder's region up to five times. After that, you have to replace an EEPROM with another one from the manufacturer in order to change regions again.
The easiest solution I can think of is to get more DVD recorders and set them to different regions. If you are a dedicated hardware hacker perhaps you can build an addressable EEPROM switcher into your machine with one chip for each region. : )
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....
You can get a special remote controller that has a built in hack that will turn your DMR E55 into a multi region player. In the UK these are available to hire from the following website. You do not need to open your unit, just press a few buttons on the controller.
