PostRegion code hack posted by KS, September 10 2003:

To watch a German DVD ( Region Code 2 ) it is not neccessary to turn the player on & off and to disconnect the power.

I tried the following:
1. Insert the DVD and close the tray
2. Switch Power to on
3. Press the 1 continusly, till DVD-VIDEO is seen on the screen. The Video starts from the beginning.
4. To get rid of the WRONG REGION display just press AUDIO MODE on the Remote Control and it will disappear.

If you press 2 on the Remote Control, doesn't mean that REGION CODE 2, it means the Chaoter of the Movie the Movie will start to play.

The negative point is, that the REMOTE CONTROL features ( except AUDIO MODE ) doen't work at all.

Till now I haven't found a way to pass that.

The hack that Gabbysdad posted worked great. Setting it to Region 0 worked for me. I was able to play Region 1 (including RCE) and Region 2 discs without making any other changes. Thanks! :-)
