Anyone know how to hack this Daewoo DVD player>

Unverified post in newsgroup indicates that this player is region-free with no mods or code entry.
Would appreciate if someone could verify (I have no non-US DVDs to test on my unit)

This player is region free. I have verified with an european DVD and everything works perfect. I bought it on Sams club for 40 bucks.

Has anybody checked the Daewoo DVD-S151 out
in a 220-240VAC environment?
Some of the other Daewoo players are
multi-voltage, being both documented and
undocumented as such. This one is rated at 50/60
cycles, so I wonder if it isn't multi-voltage as well.
If the PAL --> NTSC conversion works both ways
(Why shouldn't it?) then this would be a great (and
cheap!) present for European friends ... even if they
have to run it through a 220 --> 110 V converter.
I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who can share
relevant knowledge or experience with me.

I have had this DVD for two months and it is working fine. It is already set to read all DVDs (all regions and PAL/NTSC). It works with any TV. It needs 120V power supply, so, if you want to use it with 220V, you must have a voltage converter (you can find for $5 everywhere on Internet). Picture and sound are ok (Not the best... just ok).

This player is region free right out of the box but if you need to see the region menu all you do is go to the main screen and press MENU 1 9

Anyone know how to disable the macrovision on a Daewoo DVD-S151 (or any other Daewoo product, so I can try). It's a great little play that does a lot for the cheap price. It plays all the European videos we have, then can switch easily back to US region. But it doesn't have a coax port, and the tv at my wife's school is so old it doesn't have RCA or the other inputs - so it has to play through the VCR that's attached.

lo que tienes que hacer es muy sencillo y funciona con todos loa daewoo.
- enciendan el dvd y dejen la bandeja abierta.
- presionar los botones 1,3,7,9
- presionar el numero de la region de la pelicula que quieran ver, es decir, 1 para zona 1, 2 zona 2, 4 zona 4, etc.
- introducir la pelicula y listo.
Deben hacerlo cada ves que el dvd lo pida.
