Region code hack posted by g0bgb, June 22 2010:

HI this hack is the same as for the S370, 360, and S550
and uses the "One For All Kameleon 6 " or URC-7950 remote

1. Press and hold the [Magic Hat] button until the rabbit appears (the IR indicator bars also flash twice)

The Rabbit in the Magic Hat should be visible for all the following steps.
Pausing too long will cause the Rabbit to dissappear.
If it dissappears then repeat step 1 and also the block of instructions you were doing at the time.

2. Press [DEV SET]
3. Press [DVD]
4. Press 0533
5. Press [OK] - The IR indicator bars flash twice
6. Press [ESC]

The remote is now programmed and ready to use, to make the BDP-S570 region free:

1. Use the remote that came with the player to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it. It should read "HOME" on the front panel.
2. Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the oneforall remote. The blue 24p light will start flashing on the front panel
3. Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote
4. Next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD playback

I used Kameleon 6, Works Fine and tested Region 1, 2, 3, and 4 DVD's

Hello,

Just to say that this hack doenst work.

The BDP-S570 code is 1565. Not the one above.

I dont have a URC that have this code yet to test it.

See you...

Is there a way to do this hack without a kameleon?



Region code hack posted by JonnyParkes, September 15 2010:

Chums, None of the multi-region DVD hacks for S570 are working for me and I am fast losing hope I will ever watch my Aussie and US DVD's again :-(

I have recently got a BDP-S570B (Region 2 / UK) uprevved with latest firmware and a One for All Kameleon URC-8305.

So far cannot even get control of the player with the URC, let alone use it to make the player multi-region.

There doesnt seem any agreement across the various hacks on what the IR device code is for this unit, though the multi-region hack seems consistent across this model and other Sony BD players. I read some other articles suggesting the URC-8305 did not work with this hack, though as its just sending IR codes that makes no sense to me.

Can anyone cast any light on this, please ?

Above hack works like a dream, except had to use code 20533 instead of 0533, on URC-3940 (Argos £15)



Region code hack posted by IdleRich, November 13 2010:


Hi Everyone,

I've tried all of these hacks with my Kameleon 1-in-10 and none of them work. Surely they can't be all that different from earlier Kameleon models...

There goes the £12 it cost me from ebay!

Cheers,

S

Does anyone know of a hack for the Sony BDP-S570 bought in the US that plays Region 1 only? I have a region 1 player and need to make it be able to play a multi-region or at least a region 2 DVD. The hacks on this page seem to work on European Sony players not US players.



Region code hack posted by CharlesRyan, February 11 2011:

I have not had success with the hacks given here (there is an identical hack
under the BDP-S370). Given comments here and on that thread, it appears that
this hack does not work for unit purchased in the US. Any insights for those of
us in Region 1 would be appreciated!



Region code hack posted by Clogger, February 16 2011:

Hi,

The first hack in this thread (with the 5 digit codes) worked perfectly with my Kameleon URC-8206 on my region 2 BDP-S570.

Thanks g0bgb



Region code hack posted by mattipr, June 02 2011:

Hi,
bought remote control URC3920/3940 and with that the first needed code is 21516 (not 20533 like stated above).
But then at the end when pressing 1,2,3,4,5: after the 5th, Sony is only blinking "see you" and it is not region free :-( What can be wrong...?



Region code hack posted by g0bgb, December 20 2011:

HI just got my second Sony BDP S570B From Amazon for the bedroom, used the hack I listed at top Using the same URC 8026
Kamelon one for all and the hack worked 1st time
IE before hack S570 would not play region 1, After hack now plays R1 R2 R3 R4
hope this helps confirm that this hack does work
but it is difficult to programme handset correctly 1st time round, take your time get it right.



Region code hack posted by rDomotor, October 18 2012:

In Brazil is too hard find the URC-7740, I buy the URC-7340 and try to use
the steps, but do not work with my BDP-S570.

No blue light on the front panel are flashing on start.
Some one can help me, please?



Region code hack posted by theGiant, July 03 2013:

Hello,

I used the Kameleon URC8206. It seems there are about 6 different codes you have to try to get the remote to work with your Sony. The code that worked for me was: 1533.
The other codes are: 0533, 1516, 0864, 1133, 1017.
Good luck with this.
