Hi -

The Sony BDP-S470 can be unlocked for region free, as long as the player wasn't made for the North American market. If the player was originally Region 1 for DVD / Region A for Blu-ray, it cannot be unlocked.

Players made for other regions can be unlocked, but only for DVDs, not for Blu-ray discs. To do this you will need a programmable universal remote control with assignable keys. Unlocking for region free will also invalidate any warrranty which is still effective on the player.

Your player seems to be one of those that can be unlocked so, assuming invalidating the warranty isn't an issue for you, you will need one of the following remote controls made by One-for-All to unlock your DVD player:

URC-3940
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/270723691564

URC-3741
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/180641972017

URC-7960
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/170611594129

There are others which can be used, but some are quite expensive so I would suggest one of the above. If you don't have an Ebay account, they are available from many other suppliers.

Once you have obtained one of the above remote controls, the instructions for unlocking can be found here: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks?dvdplayer=Sony+BDP-S470&hits=50

These instructions vary slightly depending on which One-for-All remote you use, so I suggest obtaining one of the remotes listed above first, then let me know which one you bought and I will provide the exact instructions for your remote control.

If you would like clarification on any of the information above before proceeding, please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

Regards,
BElectric
