Ensure no disc is in player
Power-up the player from 'standby' to 'on' with the remote
Once the green 'Seiki' wallpaper appears press the 'Setup'
Press these numbers sequentially: 8, 5, 2, 0
This brings up a 'Factory' menu where you can change the DVD
region code (use Region 0 for region free) and you can change
the Blu-Ray region too (there's no 'region free' option, so
you'll need to change it per disk)

Regarding changing the Blu-ray Disc region, change to:
1 for Region A
2 for Region B
4 for Region C
At time of writing, there are two known hardware revisions. Each hardware revision has different firmware. The above-mentioned 8520 hack works for both.

The hack, as described, worked like a charm on a unit purchased from Walmart Canada.

All, the previous post about using 8, 5, 2, 0 from the controller to bring up the factory menu worked for me on the second atempt. The first attempt failed because I had already moved the cursor to the 'system' menu item. For the instructions to work, you must be positioned at the icon (light blue screen with a brass cog wheel image).
You also use this method to change the BD code when needed because, unlike DVD where a region code of '0' means 'no region', if you have a BD region 2 disk you must re-set the machine in order to read it (and reset it again back to 1 when needed). Not that big a deal though.
BTW, so far (and I've only had the machine for a couple of hours), it looks pretty good - my only criticism is that the controller is even more plasticky than the average. But at 78 CAD from Walmart, it's a steal so it is a very minor and irrelevant complaint. Thanks to those who recommended this machine. This has probably saved me 100 bucks - I saw one of these advertised on e-bay for 179 + postage in ON.

I have a Yamaha player that uses a similar GUI. With the Seiki, after pressing "SETUP" followed by 8520, what did you guys do to determine whether you wanted to change the DVD region or Blu-ray region? Did you use the arrow keys? Did you use the previous/next track/chapter keys? Did you use the forward/reverse scanning keys? Or did you use something else?

After pressing SETUP followed by 8520, I see the current DVD and BD region codes (1 and A). I am able to use the arrow keys to reset the password and erase the internal BDLIVE storage. How am I supposed to determine whether I want to change the DVD or BD region code? Also, how am I supposed to change either the DVD or BD region from the current region to a region of my choice?
