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.

Blue ray drive

Well there are two types of PS3 Bluray drives. If they are the same type (they will look quite a bit different if they aren't) then yes you can.

However, you need to swap the circuit boards on the Bluray drives located on the bottom or else your PS3 will not play games, just movies.

This is because your Bluray drive and your PS3 are "paired" but swapping the circuit boards makes it think it using the same drive.

Good luck!

Playstation 3

I assume that the Marantz has an Optical lead input. If so you should connect an digital optical lead directly between the PS3 and the Marantz receiver for the sound while keeping the HDMI lead to the projector for the picture. You will need to configure the PS3 to be outputting the sound to the optical output (done through the settings menu).
