PostRegion code hack posted by FraKtus, December 26 2002:


The hack posted by Zaphod for the Pioneer DV-454 was working fine for my 350, I did use a Palm 500 with OmniRemote 2.0.2 to send the codes.

The most difficult part is to be sure that you are in the range of the IR. To be sure that my palm was in the right position I did learn to OmniRemote a few buttons of the pioneer original remote control.

When I saw that I was in the right position/distance thanks to the learned keys I did send the command 0 and the player did shut down. When I sended the command the player was on with no disc inside.

Now my player is region free!

Hope this helps!

The problem Haukis is having with region 1 DVD's (not playing in color) probably comes down to that region 1 DVD's use NTSC and Region 2 us PAL If you connect your DVD direct to your PAL TV there will (most likley be a problem) try putting it through an NTSC/PAL VCR that usualy gives you color

Davo



PostOther hack posted by Haukis, December 30 2002:


The "no color" problem when playing region1 DVD`s on my Pioneer DV-350 was caused by my TV that only takes PAL signals.

The player wil automaticly select signal type after the region DVD you put in the player... If you put in a region1 NTSC DVD the player wil select NTSC signal output.... and likwise PAL for region2 PAL DVD`s...
The player wil automaticly select output signal by default based on the DVD.
But here comes a tip...
By pressing and holding in the power button on the player and at the same time press one of the "skip" buttons... you can select the output signaltype.... The choises are NTSC PAL and AUTO...
This means that you can play REGION1 NTSC DVD`s on your old PAL TV whitout sending the signals through a VCR.

In my case, I also tried so many times with my plam m500. and I fianlly succeeded in codefree.
but the color turned to be gray.
so I worked out this problem like this.

setup->initial settings->vedio output->Av connector out->RGB ( I connected dvdp and tv with scart and after codefree the value was not RGB. so I choose RGB and now I get the color back.)

Gook luck~



PostRegion code hack posted by alex, January 04 2003:


It works fine! As others have said, the OR export bug is in fact irrelevant.
I imported the memo as described: it will only work if OR imports 19 codes. It did not work the 1st time, so I uninstalled/reinstalled OR on my Visor and all was OK.
Thanks a lot to Zaphod for this!



PostRegion code hack posted by Thomas, January 05 2003:


hmmm.... i have tried everything ... different versions of or ... i just asked a friend of mine who owns a phillips pronto, in order to try it with this remote ... nothing worked :( .. btw i have the rom version 1.308 adv, so rom-version doens't seem to be a problem! i think i will go to a shop and ´let them do the modifikation :(



PostRegion code hack posted by Thomas, January 07 2003:


I have tried pronto tsu2000 and nothing, still:
REGION 2
ROM VERSION 1.308_Adv
I read that there must not be the disk in the player during this operation and Options menu must be selected.
Is it possible that there is a little different IR-code for 454 and 350?
What about Macrovision?




PostRegion code hack posted by Thomas, January 11 2003:


I used palm pIII beside Pronto without success (up to 150 tries each).
Must be selected any special menu option, any special region settings, languages etc. prior to use IR-code?





PostRegion code hack posted by Thomas, January 12 2003:


Success, after Pronto and palm with OR I used lirc codes (see dv454). First try was enough!





PostRegion code hack posted by DarkSoul, February 04 2003:


I tried it about 1000 times with my Palm M100.
The clue was to change the aiming angle, because the IR sensor is pointing down a little. I aimed slightly over the DVD-Player and it worked.



PostRegion code hack posted by SteveT, February 06 2003:


This is how I did it on a DV-350 with ROM 1.068;

I built a little IR transmitter as described on the LIRC website

http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html

This is basically an IR LED that you plug into the serial port of your PC and can be controlled using WinLIRC software. I used a 1K5 resistor, DTR is pin 4 of a 9 way D-Type, and Gnd is Pin 5.

http://winlirc.sourceforge.net/
(I used v0.6.3)

I then created a WinLIRC config file by cutting and pasting the code in Peters message on the DV-454 hack list (dated Jan 9 2003) into a text file and changing the extention to .cf
This was loaded into WinLIRC, I changed the transmitter settings to DTR, loaded Pioneer as the Remote, and Region as the Code. I held the IR LED about 6 inches from the player, sent the code from WinLIRC, and my player rebooted first try.

Thanks to Sacce for pointing me in the direction of the IR Transmitter.

Steve.



PostRegion code hack posted by monofade, February 07 2003:


I did it with a Palm using Omniremote and the HEX Code listed in this forum. It did not work at first as many people here have claimed. I bought my DV350 in Germany Region Code 2. After installing the dv350 i made changes to language, audio settings etc. thats what seems to have caused trouble in hacking the device. Here's what I did:

-reset all settings to factory default (language etc.)
-learn button to '0' in Omniremote
-import/export Omniremote database
-that's it!!!

Things like distance or angle to dv350's IR port didn't seem to have any significant effect! Best chances to get the DV350/454 region code free is right after purchase without any system changes! Hope this helps...



PostRegion code hack posted by Jamas, March 06 2003:


I went back to my reseller and ask him to make my DVD player region free with the Pioneer SERVICE-remote.
He had such a remote and after a couple of button-clicks he made my DV-350 region free. Easy !!

So ask your reseller to do this for you.



PostRegion code hack posted by Bjorn, March 12 2003:


Worked after one attempt!

Palm + OmniRemote 2.07 for DV-350

1) install omniremote 2.07
2) export category-tv
3) modify the exported memo with peter's code
4) import the new memo
5) press the 0 button

Done!



PostRegion code hack posted by Senator, April 30 2003:


Use the hack posted by QuickSilver at January 22 2003: in the Pioneer DV-454 list. It works for the Pioneer DV-350.

Hack instructions using Win2000 + laptop built in IRDA + WinLirc + Peters code (fast and easy !)

Its worked first time!



PostRegion code hack posted by Valoche, April 30 2003:


Peter's code did not work for me, so I modified it a little:

Using a Pronto remote RU940, the correct hex code is:
0000 0067 0000 0044 0155 00ac 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0404 0155 00ac 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0404

You can notice that it differs from Peter's: the 3rd and 4th words are swapped, and the word before the 2nd 0155 is 0404 instead of 0400, as well as the last word. I found the permutations to do by learning a random button from my VXX2801 remote (which is BTW also labelled "SR", as the player is).

It worked flawlessly with only 1 pressure on the button on a DV-350/S FW 1.568_adv.

NO COLOUR PROB,S


IF YOU ARE HAVING PROB,S WITH REGION 1 DVDS PLAYING IN BLACK & WHITE JUST USE A FULLY WIRED SCART LEAD (FULLY WIRED NOT THE CHEEP CRAP) AND SET YOUR PLAYER TO R G B IN THE VIDEO OUT MENU . HEY PRESTO YOU HAVE COLOUR !!!! . THIS PROCESS WILL WORK ON ALL PLAYERS WITH THIS PROB . IF THIS DON'T WORK THEN BUY A DECINT TV AND STOP TRYING TO USE STATE OF THE ART DVD PLAYER WITH A RELIC TV .





PostRegion code hack posted by MrSister, July 06 2003:


I used the same procedure posted by SteveT at February 06 2003, but the version of WinLirc is 0.6.4

I did it on a DV-350 with ROM 1.588Adv. Actually is REGION _*. I hope it work's fine.
Thank's Steve





PostRegion code hack posted by Steve Rae, July 21 2003:


I used the WinLIRC Software V0.6.4 with Peters code from Jan 3 2003.

I have a toshiba 4310 with Highspeed Infrared port, this did not work with Winlirc cause it has to connect to a com port, having read all the comments about this, i discovered that this type of laptop's irda port is attached to the pci bus and can't be linked to a com port. SO...

I got an old Toshiba 460CXT Sat Pro with windows 95 on which had a generic irda port on com2. Horray, i thought...


brought it home, installed peters code for the dv454, set the settings in winlrc to TX, turned on my dvd player (DV350) and hit the send button. The dvd player turned itself off, and on turning it back on, horray again, region _*.

Tested it with my mates T2 R1 disk working 100%.

Thanks guys for all your help. saved myself £30.

Peter's Hack worked perfectly on my Pioneer DV-350 (ROM VERSION 1068_Adv)

I used Psiloc Total irRemote 1.32 on my NOKIA 7650, just creat a text file by paste the code from Peter then rename this file to "lircd.conf", send it to NOKIA 7650 or 3650 using iR or Bluetooth, import the code to Total irRemote and then choose "select command",.... DONE ;-)

**After you sent the code to your DV-350, just wait about 20 seconds, your DV-350 will shutdown itself, after that, your DV-350 will be Region Free !**

the easyes way that i have found is to put the above codes into an empty notpad-file on your pc, and save that file as Category-TV.txt (Case-Sensitive) and be sure to remove any trailing spaces at the end of a line. Be sure that at the end of the file there is ONE empty line. Then send that file to your palm (if you have an infra-redport on your pc)
and do an import in the omniremote-software. if it was succesfull it will tell you that it has imported 19(!!) buttons. then go to your dvd-player and send button 0 to it. if all goes well, it will automaticly shut down.

Greetings Chris


P.S. it worked the first time i tryed it

SteveT's Region code hack of February 06 2003 worked perfectly 1st time for my UK purchased DV-350S. Thanks Steve.

Build the IR transmitter as described on the LIRC website http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html. DTR is pin 4 of a 9 way D-Type, and Gnd is Pin 5.

Plug the circuit into the serial port of your PC (note the No of the port as you'll need this for the software).

Download winlirc free from http://winlirc.sourceforge.net/
(I used v0.6.5)

Cut and paste all of the following code into a text file and changing the extention to .cf and save the file somewhere:

Run WinLIRC. Check the transmitter settings are DTR, select the file you saved in the config box, select the Com port number that you used. Press OK, then select Pioneer as the Remote, and Region as the Code. Hold the IR LED about 6 inches from the player, turn the player on and send the code from WinLIRC. Your player will turn off and when you turn it on it should rebooted as multiregion.

Any problems or if you need the software or want to use my circuit contact huw@thehazards.co.uk

Thanks to Sacce for pointing me in the direction of the IR Transmitter.

Steve.




PostRegion code hack posted by William, February 08 2004:


The hack posted by Zaphod for the Pioneer DV-454 was working fine for my 350, I did use a Palm III with OmniRemote 2.0.2 to send the codes.

I had some problems in having the DV 350 receive the codes. But after a number of tries (from a short distance and holding the Palm in different directions towards the IR sensor) the power went of and my Pioneer accepted region 1 DVD's which it didn't accept before.

Instead of region code 2 it now noted region code -

So good luck for all the others who want to give it a try!

how do you apply the hack code with the remote?
