These are the commands for the DAV-300 but hopefully they are the same for yours...hope it helps.
Region 0 is what you want, but here's all the commands for the 300 which hopefully work on the sc8 as well.

Put your player into "Standby" Mode and enter one of the following commands if
necessary,
: Remote control command Function
: [0] [RETURN] Default Default region code on the player
: [1] [RETURN] Region 1
: [2] [RETURN] Region 2
: [3] [RETURN] Region 3
: [4] [RETURN] Region 4
: [5] [RETURN] Region 5
: [6] [RETURN] Region 6
: [P. MODE] [RETURN] Only play DVD's with the selected region; auto switching
OFF
: [AUDIO] [RETURN] Default Auto switching ON
: [ANGLE] [RETURN] Enable video interference impulses (Macrovision ON)
: [SUBTITLE] [RETURN] Default Disable video interference impulses (Macrovision
OFF)
: [PREV] [RETURN] Enable user operation prohibitions* and access restrictions
: [NEXT] [RETURN] Default Disable user operation prohibitions* and access
restrictions.

    If you have a laptop with an IRDA port (and I think your unit has to be region 2 or 4) then this has been proven to work on your unit.

    1. Download Winsamp here:http://www.veg.nildram.co.uk/remote13.zi...
    This program will emulate an IR remote on your laptop

    2. Extract the package onto a bootable DOS floppy disk. (this step is very important, I tried to use the software directly out of Windows before, but without success)

    3. Download this IR code file and place it in the same directory as the package above. This file holds the five necessary IR codes converted to the format used by winsamp.exe.http://www.selen.org/files/REMOTE.TXT

    4. Boot up your PC from the floppy disk and run winsamp.exe. If your IRDA port doesn't appear as COM2 you may override this by using an appropriate command line switch. For example, use COM1 by running 'winsamp C1'.

    5. Press the 'r' key to load up the codes into winsamp.

    6. Turn on the Player.

    7. Hold down "EJECT" and "PREV" and and while keeping them pressed press VOLUME +, this should get you into the service menu.

    8. Make sure your DVD player is in "Service IN" mode and your IRDA port is within range.

    9. Run the IR codes from 1 to 5 by pressing Enter on each corresponding button.

    10. Your DVD player should now display "DATA RESET".

    11. Press the power button on the player remote.

    12. Plug it out for 5-10 seconds.

    13. Start it again, and play your region 1 ect. discs !!
