|Region code hack posted by Caretaker, May 12 2013:|
I purchased and used a OneForAll Kameleon 6 URC8206 remote control unit (hence forth: RC) to perform the hack. It works perfectly, provided you configure and program the RC correcly. Read the instruction manual carefully and acquaint youself fully with the RC. Once you have programmed the RC correctly, use only the OneForAll RC to perform the hack.
The button sequence is;
Pause approximately 2 seconds between key presses on the OneForAll RC for best results. If nothing happens, don't worry. Just try again.
The Panasonic DMR-EH57 device will go into standby mode, and wake up from it immediately after. During that time, it will briefly display an 'HELLO' message in the device display. Your device is now region free.
Note that the [00F2] button does not exist. You must program a [MAGIC] button on the OneForAll RC to replace the [00F2] button with a five digit code. This code is . Consult the user manual of the OneForAll RC for instructions on how to do that.
Note also that the [SUBT.], [AUDIO] and the [+10] keys are not present on the original RC of the Panasonic DMR-EH57. Don't worry, because all three are present on the OneForAll RC, and, after you assign the OneForAll RC the device code setting for your Panasonic DMR-EH57 (see the next note), they will each perform the functions needed to complete the hack.
Note also that the user manual of the OneForAll RC states that the device code for setting up your Panasonic DVD-recorder is . But it is not! The correct device code is . Assign one of the device keys on the OneForAll RC to the Panasonic DMR-EH57.
For clarity, note that the [<<] key represents the left 'SLOW/SEARCH' key, not the left 'SKIP' key.
'Button' and 'key' are two words for the same thing.
I originally performed this hack on a Panasonic DMR-EH65, for which it worked perfectly.
