PostRegion code hack posted by Me, September 15 2002:

This unit is available at Sam's Club and

To change the region code:

1. Open Disc Tray
2. Push "Setup" on remote control.
3. Push "93010"
("9" is the region code for all regions. You can substitute your region for 9 if you prefer.)
4. Push "Step," "Shuffle," and then "Next"
5. Close the Disc Tray.

to verify that the hack has worked:

1. Open Disc Tray
2. Push "Setup" on remote control.
3. Push "Shuffle," "Step, " and then "Next"
This takes you to the secret setup menu.
4. Scroll down to the "debug" setting and verify that the region you selected is selected here. Note that making changes directly to the menu here WILL NOT WORK!
5. Close the disc tray

Note: There are some interesting settings in the secret setup menu that can be useful. When playing certain PAL discs on an NTSC TV (SouthPark vol. 12-15 for example), you will notice certain distortions caused by the drawing method. You can alleviate this problem by changing the "picture mode" in the secret menu until you find a setting that works.

I purchased a Daewoo 5800 3 weeks ago at Sam's club and ran the firmware patch posted on this web-page:

It was a very smooth upgrade.
I do have a multi-norm TV set and ran the following tests with "Attack of the Clones" and "Pearl Harbor":
- PAL Region 2 DVD on PAL TV
- PAL Region 2 DVD on NTSC TV
- NTSC Region 1 DVD on PAL TV
- NTSC Region 1 DVD on NTSC TV

There was no noticable distortion, noise or anything in either one of the settings.

Didn't try the Macrovision disabling as I don't copy DVD's to tape!

If you have this player and would like to playback other formats, this is THE ONE fix you need!
