[Repost]
You need:
PDA w/Palm OS 3.0 or later
OmniRemote Pro V2.02 (http://www.pacificneotek.com/)

Type in (or transfer) the memo below to your PDA.
As a memo you can import it into OmniRemote with this menu command:
Advanced-->Databases-->Import category

When done, point your PDA towards your DV-454, put OmniRemote in TV-mode and press 0 (Zero)
Done:)

Some stores charge $35 for this

Comment to the above stated hack!

I'm familiar with the palm, omniremote and programming these. Tried the above stated in 3 different ways also with OmniRemote Desktop and did not sucseed. DV-454 with firmw. 1.258 did not react at all.



PostRegion code hack posted by Marcus, November 14 2002:


Comment to the comment:
I did exactly what the hack said, and tried, and it did not work. =(

So I got mad and sent the code 20 times to the DVD upon which it shut down and: WAS REGION FREE!

So I guess it's not that sensitive, try and try again and eventually it will work (and when it does, it will shut down so you see it).

Repeated this procedure on my friends DV-454 (same model) and it worked like a charm!



PostRegion code hack posted by Codefree, November 17 2002:


For me it worked fine Firmware 1.258adv but it took nearly 50times sending the code to the player.



PostRegion code hack posted by portney, November 18 2002:


Thanx for a great hack Zaphod!

Worked fine for me, but I had the same "problem" as a couple of you other guys - worked after sending 20 - 30 times.

A reminder if you havent tried this hack yet :
If Remote Control reports "0 IR codes imported" (or less than 19) then you probably have a space after each line, probably just because you marked and copied directly from Zaphod´s code here. Then it will not work. Edit Category-TV and make sure that there are no spaces after each line.




PostRegion code hack posted by Theo, November 21 2002:


Works well on german DV 454.

For OmniRemote: First install OR and a memo just with the four-bits for button 0. Then start OR on Palm, export category TV, in Memo you can view that all the buttons are like
Button name-XXX
0000 0067 0000 0000
Now paste the long text from your other memo to some button. When you re-import a catagory in OR, it should say "19 IR codes imported." If you try to import another memo not created by OR, you will fail.



PostRegion code hack posted by David, December 06 2002:


I have achieved all the steps suggested. But when I importing the category I see the code is slightly changed 0048 instead of 0049 and a few othe changes. I export again the category, modify the memo and when done import again but code is always altered the same way as before.
Can't understand how to apply changes when imported category has an altered code.



PostRegion code hack posted by David, December 13 2002:


I have made the training of the buttons first. Then have exported the category.
Then have simply changed the button name 0 with the code given in the first message below and have imported it again.
So, after 10 attempts it worked!
I think one of the problem was also that I was too near to the DVD....You should stay at some 1 mt from the DVD player.

PostRegion code hack posted by Leon, December 14 2002:


Known Ir-code hack also possible with Pocket PC2002. I myselfe used a IPAQ3850. You also need "TV remote controller 3.1"( www.pdawin.com ) and the ProntoEdit software (can be found at http://www.smarthomeusa.com/pronto/pronto_edit_tsu2000.htm ).
The clue is that you can import CCF-files(Pronto files) in de "TV remote controller 3.1" software.
So I made a CCF-file, using the known hex-infrared code, with the ProntoEdit program and then imported it in the "TV Remote" software.
I also had to try it about 20 times before it worked. But my player (DV 350) is now regionfree !

:-)

PostRegion code hack posted by Ernest, December 14 2002:


I have just used this hack for the pioneer dv-355, and it works. Tried several times to import the category, but always the OR changed the code to 0048, so I uploaded the memo to the palm, changed the code to 0050 before importing, and that was it, OR exported it as 0049. I had to press button "0" 23 times in the OR until the dvd player turned off. Hope it helps.



PostRegion code hack posted by Theo, December 18 2002:


Hi there,

as I told before, it works on a german 454. For me, OR changes the codes also, and it took me a fucking lot of tries, but finally it was done. There won't be a "working" .pdb file, as the problem is in OR. I tried to send my code to an Ipaq and a universal remote, then I learned another button with the codes I have sended, and there are always many changes. OR seems not to be to reliable, so I guess the only clue I can give is to try it again and again, turn off all other advices like TV or VCR, and eventually it will work.

@Haukis: Have you tried to set the output of your player to RGB? Otherwise the black and white is normal, seems you have an rather old TV.



PostRegion code hack posted by Toni, December 26 2002:


Hi!

With the given hex code your player will be region free (set to all regions). That's great, but this may also cause some problems with certain dvds... . So I wondered if there is anyone who knows where exactly in the given hex code the region code is to be found? Because if it is possible to create an ir-code from the given one for every single region, you could switch the region code of your dvd player manually everytime you need to... .

Any suggestions? Thanks!





PostRegion code hack posted by Ray, December 31 2002:


Followed all of the posts with interest but I too suffer from the OR 49 to 48 code issue. My question is does this actually make a difference or is it a red herring? Ernest managed to get 49 in OR by exporting 50 - I've tried numbers 49 through 59 with the same result 48. I wonder whether Zaphod/Marcus suffered from this issue but still got it to work. Anyway, still region 2,still scratching my head...



PostRegion code hack posted by Stephane, January 03 2003:


I finally got it to work too. I spent a whole evening on this problem, but a previous post clearly mentioned that you have to export the database with OR, then past the original hex codes (the hex code from the key "0") to another key, then import the database again in OR (it *must* display that you imported 19 IR codes) and it's perfectly working. I sent 3 times the key and the dvd player switched off by itself.

When I rebooted, it displayed "REGION _*", perfect !

Thanks for the tip !

Steph



PostRegion code hack posted by Wagner Santos, January 03 2003:


I have got the same problem with the code changing to 0048 from 0049 after importing the code with Omniremote. I decided to ignore this and it worked after importing and pressing 0. The player is region-free now.




PostRegion code hack posted by Chris, January 05 2003:


Using Zaphods IR Code Sequence I have written a program which should trasmit this from a Psion Revo, or a Diamond Mako PDA. It may also work from a Psion 5MX.

You can download the software from here:
http://www.spigdog.co.uk/RevoDV454Hack.htm

I've got a DV-454 on order so haven't actually been able to try this, but by modifying the code sequence I have been able to send other remote codes to my old Pioneer player using the above program, so it should work.



PostOther hack posted by Phaeton, January 09 2003:


I tried the hack using the Psion Revo way, but unfortunately it didn't work. I sent the code more than 50 times but the DVD unit remains locked to Region 2.
I'll try it using a PDA instead tonight. Then I'll post the result and further details you might need.



PostRegion code hack posted by Tuoppi76, January 09 2003:


Used Compaq IPaq with PocketPC 2000, TV remote controller 5.1 demo from www.pdawin.com and CCF-file posted by sienko.

After pressing 0 (zero) button about 30 times my Pioneer DV-454 turned off and was REGION FREE.

Thanks...




PostRegion code hack posted by Cilonen, January 09 2003:


With regard to Matt's question:

If the player won't accept an RCE disc it should show a map of the world regions on screen. 1 method of bypassing this problem is to play a regular R1 disc past the FBI warning page, eject, then try the RCE disc again. The player effectively "hard-sets" itself to R1 once a R1 disc is accepted, so any subsequent R1 discs (RCE or not) should then play.

This works with pre-RCE mod chips, so MAY work with the hack.



PostRegion code hack posted by Peter, January 09 2003:


Hi !
because I don't like PDAs and expensive remotes,
i have converted the (broken) Pronto Codes to Codes
for the Linux "lirc". (Linux Remote Control)

There is also windows version of "lirc", butI don't know if this config file will work fro windows.

See http://www.lirc.org/ for details.

Save the following lines as /etc/lircd.conf
start "lircd"
now type

"rc send_once pioneer region"

Thats it ! Works for me on the first try....

Have fun !

Peter

Take your DV-454 or DV-350 to any Superfi store in the U.K. (they have many branches - check on the web site) ask them nicely and they should make your DVD player multi-region in seconds !!! They use a Pioneer remote. I've had 3 done!



PostRegion code hack posted by Phaeton, January 10 2003:


Well, finally it worked for me. I used a Packard Bell Pocket PC 2030. I didn't count the times I sent it but it worked. The CCF file I used was the one Sienko used and uploaded.



PostRegion code hack posted by Peter, January 13 2003:


Hi, because not everybody succeeds with the first Pronto codes sended, I converted my "LIRC" Codes back to Pronto Hex Format.
Because I have no Pronto remote, I could not try this
code, but It should work.
Maybe somebody can report.

Absoulutly no warranty !
Maybe you can only watch Disney Movies after you have sendet this code !
I don't know !

Have Fun

PostRegion code hack posted by OmfOmf, January 15 2003:


I used the hack by sienko and Tuoppi76. Using my ipaq 3970 with TV remote controller 5.1 demo and CCF-file posted by sienko, pressing "0" 7 times and my dv-454 reset itself region free. This also works with the DV-350.



PostRegion code hack posted by Peter, January 15 2003:


These two codes transports the same information and Zaphods codes are the source for mine.

Zaphods code is "learned". That means recorded from another remote. With that learning, there where some errors and timing (on/off lenght) problems inserted.
That make problems with some players to accept that code.
I analyzed what is the information that should be transported, and coded it with a correct timing.

Thats it.






PostRegion code hack posted by Coolermaster, January 17 2003:


As peter suggested, I succeffully made my German DV454 region free by using LIRC for windows (2000 prefessional) on a Dell Lattitude Laptop CPx with a built in IRDA. I first tried using the Linux version (Mandrake V9.0 and Redhat V7.2) but could not get LIRC it to work.

I had initial problems with winlirc version 0.6.4. I then read a report of transmitter bugs in that version. I then tried the previous version 0.6.3. This worked first time with the same peter's config file.

It is important to first disable the IRDA drivers under Windows and to also delete the *irda* files from the windows inf directory. Otherwise Windows keeps installing the IRDA driver.

In the Winirc config screen I set the reciever type to RX, Virtual pulse to 300, Transmitter to TX. That was all.


It is nice to see region 2 gone from the setup screen!

Thank-you very much Peter for your config file.








PostRegion code hack posted by Eabin, January 17 2003:


Hack from Peter worked for me at the first try (DV-350). I am still able to play the German LOTR Special Extended Edition, which is - as far as i know - RCE protected. no problems, works without flaws so far. thank you for that great hack - it saved me 50 bucks :)



PostRegion code hack posted by coolermaster, January 18 2003:


Deano,

On your toshiba laptop you must ensure that the relevant com port has not been grabbed by windows 2000. On the BIOS screen it should tell you which comp port (com2 probably)is being used by the IRDA driver. I also set the speed of my IRDA from FIR (Fast) to SIR (Slow).
Once you have disabled the drivers and removed the 6 *IRDA* filesfrom the winnt/int (hidden) directory, the com port should be free after the next reboot. You should check this by looking for a new com port mentioned under the ports device category. The exact method including editing some inf files, is defined in the WinLirc site. The only thing I found out by myself that was not mentioned was to delete the 6 files with IRDA in their title (using 'del *IRDA*'). Up until then Windows kept installing the IRDA device.
Once you tell WinIRC using the reconfigure button what port and speed you are using all should be ok. My 454 powered down after pressing the send button. When it came back up it was multiregion.
Hope this helps you.



PostRegion code hack posted by Sacce, January 21 2003:


I answer myself: Yes it works! All you need is 3 components and a serial port connector. In WinLirc you must enable TDR. Thanks for the code & instructions!



PostRegion code hack posted by QuickSilver, January 22 2003:


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

Thank You Peter and all others!!. WinLirc worked for my DV-350 beautifully :-)

Here are my instructions:


Background info:

My Thinkpad A30 (Windows 2000) had detected and installed the following device:

*IBM0071.DeviceDesc="IBM ThinkPad Fast Infrared Port"


This is how I got it to work with WinLirc:

1) remove following files from \Winnt\INF

*irda*
irnsc.inf (might be different dep. of your hardware)
netirda.inf

(I'm not sure if all these really need to be removed. Remember to leave a backup copy)


2) In Device Manager: Uninstall the IBM ThinkPad Fast Infrared Port (or similar Ir device)


3) edit \Winnt\INF\netirsir.inf: (INF editing info is copied from WIRC pages)

Remove following lines

%*PNP0510.DevDesc% = PNP, *PNP0510
%*PNP0511.DevDesc% = PNP, *PNP0511

Change line
ExcludeFromSelect=*PNP0510,*PNP0511,*IBM0002,*IBM0034,*IBM0020

to this

ExcludeFromSelect=*IBM0002,*IBM0034,*IBM0020


2) Edit \Winnt\INF\msports.inf

Add these lines to section [Std]:

%*PNP0510.DeviceDesc% = ComPort, *PNP0510, *PNP0511 ; Communications Port

%*PNP0511.DeviceDesc% = ComPort, *PNP0511, *PNP0510 ; Communications Port


Add these lines to section [Strings]:

*PNP0510.DeviceDesc = "Generic Ir Serial Port"
*PNP0511.DeviceDesc = "Generic Ir Serial Port"

Add this line to section [ControlFlags]:

ExcludeFromSelect=*PNP0510,*PNP0511


3) Reboot and let the hardware wizard run and it should find the driver for "Generic Ir Serial Port".

If everything goes ok you will see "Generic Ir Serial Port (COM2)" in the device manager.

I also changed the speed for this com port for 115200.

You are now all set to install WinLirc (I used version 0.6.3). Configure it to:

correct com port
speed: 115200
Receiver typee: RX Device
virtual pulse: 300
Transmitter settings: TX
and you need to set a config file (the lircd.conf file that Peter posted).

Open winlirc from the taskbar and select pioneer region and sed the code and thats it. Worked for me in the first try.

This code with OR worked on my DV-454 at the first try: I pressed 0 only once and the player turned-off. After that it was region-free.
Thanks Peter !

The right code is then:

Ok, When I try to import the memo into OR it says that only 1 database has been imported, and I think it should say 19 right? I paste the memo that the first hack in this forum says in my palm desktop and then I try to import it but it just keeps saying "imported=0". Once I tried exporting the database first and then modifying it, but it was too big and it took 2 memo-files, I modified it and then imported it but it said imported=12, only...
Why when I paste all the codes it doesnt read them but when I modify the exported it does, at least a part..? They both look the same, but with different codes...

Im using OR v2.07
I really need some advice here... Thanks a lot!!

as simple as this :
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 and watch movies

BTW - works for me with a verified RCE disk :

Hi,

because i don't hava any pba i tried the lirc method. I have a Fujitsu 166 MMX notebook, but could not make the ir port work with winlirc. So like Aleks suggestion I went to a store with many branches here in Holland and a salesman offered me to modify my 350 with a pioneer remote control just for a six-pack of beer!!! (I didn't buy the DVD in their store).
After all, i'm glad anyway :)

Hi,

Thanks go out to Peter for his hack listed above 13th Jan. worked on my German DCS 303 at the first attempt using OR 2.07 Palm Vx. I also had to make sure that there weren't any spaces at the end of the lines.

Hopefully it doesn't effect anythings else:-)

To Gneisenpete (and all other)

I can confirm that peter's hack (13.Jan) works properly on both a pioneer 350 FW Version 1.208_adv and a second Pioneer 350 with FW 1.568_adv. I used the actual Omniremote Version 2.07 and a Palm 105. It took 20 tries on the 1.208 and only 2 ties on the 1.569 to get them regionfree (identification is now "*" instaed of "2").

PostRegion code hack posted by Bernie, March 06 2003:


Success! Worked perfectly using WinLIRC, Peter's LIRC config file in his Jan9 post and the simple IR transmitter shown here:

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

If you intend to use WinLIRC just this once, the simple transmitter will do just fine. Just a few important things to note:

1. Connect the anode of the 1N4148 to RX and NOT to DTR. It didn't work until I did this modification.

2. Even though it's not indicated on the diagram, connect the cathode of the IR LED to GROUND.

3. Use as short a cable as possible and hold the IR transmitter in front of the DVD's IR sensor at point blank range.

4. Make sure you use a 950nm wavelength IR LED. If you can't find one (like me), rip one from an old remote or buy a cheap $10 one and rip the LED from that instead.

I didn't want to have to install Linux just for this so I used WinLIRC. Makes sure you use version 0.6.3 because 0.6.4 is buggy and it didn't work for me.

http://winlirc.sourceforge.net/

You only need to extract the Winlirc.exe file and run it for Winlirc to work. But you also need a valid confic file for it to start the first time you run it. Luckily, config files for the Linux LIRC and Windows are the same format.

Just copy-paste Peter's lircd.conf file from his Jan9 post above into a new text file in Notepad. Don't include the start and end delimiter lines in the post:

---- lircd.conf starts here ----
---- lircd.conf ends here ----

Only what's in between those lines.

Next thing is to remove all the spaces at the end of each line that resulted from the copy-paste. Save the file as pioneer.cf.

For the next step, close all programs and run ONLY WinLIRC to make sure your PC has the maximum amount of resources available. WinLIRC can be a bit of a resource hog.

Hook up your IR transmitter to a COM port and launch WinLIRC.exe . It will tell you it has failed to read IR codes or something. This is because it needs input in the form of either:

1. IR codes from an IR receiver circuit (which of course you don't have because you didn't build one... and that fortunately you don't need for this) or...

2. A valid config file.

If the config file is not valid, it will go back to the same initial error messsage until you point it to a valid one.... which is the pioneer.cf file you created above.

Next you will need to configure the options in WinLIRC to the proper values:

Port: COMx
(make sure you choose the right one if you're using a desktop. If you're using a laptop it's COM1 because those only have 1 COM port)

Speed: 115200
Receiver type: RX device
Virtual pulse: 300
Transmitter settings: TX
(don't forget, the transmitter must be connected to the TX pin of your COM port. Again, it won't work if you use DTR, this is the MOST important part and ironically, it has NOT been mentioned anywhere here until now: I dug for it so you won't have to)

Click OK and you're back on the main GUI on WinLIRC. In the drop-down boxes, select:

remote: pioneer
code: region
repeats: 0

Make sure the player is plugged in bit turned OFF (you don't need to open the drawer BTW, I dunno where some people got that from anyway). Now point the LED of the transmitter at point blank range towards the DVD player's IR sensor and click the "Send Code" button. The player should turn off and it's now region free.

If you did everything as above, it should work first shot. Unlocked both my DV-656A and my DV-353 this way.

In order to test it, just try and play a disc of a region other than the player's original region. If you don't have any such discs, it makes me wonder why you wanted to do this in the first place... Just kidding ;)

As an alternative, you can author a quick DVD with DVDit (or any other authoring tool) and set the region accordingly before generating the DVD files and burn it to CD-RW to test the player.

Also, people have been wondering about RCE discs. Those also work perfectly on the region hacked player. I tested this with 2 RCE region 1 discs:

- The Patriot
- Something about Mary

I ripped both DVD's and opened the IFO's with IFOedit to make sure the discs were really RCE and they were indeed.

Hope this helps.

Hi Folks!

I just bought DV-454 in Germany. I installed on my Palm 500 the Omniremote 2.08 Version. I imported the HEX Code from Zaphod (30 October 2002). I sent the Code several times to the player. Nothing happend. In the DV-350 Area I found the entry from Valoche. He changed the HEX Code. I tried this one and after the first try the player rebootet!! Now it is CODEFREE!!!

Works:
PalmOs 3.5.3 + OmniRemote 2.08 + Peter's Code (Januari 13 2003).
For my DV-350.

Works like a charm,

It's realy simple.
Just read the posts, you'll it's all in here.

The way I made it work is this:
1: Upload OR 2.08
2: Make a 'Note' in Microsoft Outlook (NOT Express)
and put in Peter's Code (Januari 13 2003).
3: Synchronise your PDA with Outlook.
4: Run OmniRemote on your PDA.
5: Go to menu options and select 'Advanced'.
- Choose 'Database'
- Choose 'Import Category'

It should say something like: '19 entry's imported' or
something like that. I don't remember the exact
sentence, but it was defenitely 19 anything else means
it hasn't accepted the code correctly.

Hope this helps.

Now for another questions I still have.
Now I'm able to play Region 1 DVD's I get them in black
and white.
I know I know, change your display output on your
DVD-player to 'Pal' (I'm Dutch).
BUT, my DVD player doesn't have that option and does
the switching automaticaly according to what the DVD
is serving out.

Now, I don't know whether it's possible to fix the
output to 'PAL' >>OR<< make the menu item available
to me by code ?

Any1 any suggestions ?

Have used the method from 9 jan, works perfectly.
Used pin 3 of the rs232 connector, resistor 800 Ohm.
Tried to send the code into a learning remote controller, this didn't work..i think because the transmitted signal is to weak.
Better to use a 500 Ohm resistor if you want to sent it to a learning remote.(then you can use it at dvd player from friends )

Hi,
well, after so many people successfully did the region hack, I also did a try. I just downloaded OR V2.08, and tried to import the codes from memo pad as a category. But OR does neither say "19 codes imported" nor "1 code imported" but "18 codes imported". When I try to use my palm with button "0" it says, that the RC has not been trained. Also, when I export the category TV, the modified code for button 0 has disappeared. Any help? I use a Palm V with PalmOS 4.1.

I followed QuickSiver (January 22) using IBM ThinkPad T21 + Win2000 + built-in IRDA + WinLirc + Peter code (January 09).

All seems to work well and function correctly. I have the Pioneer DV-S755Ai (the Singapore version of DV-47Ai). With the player ON, I sent the code, and the player turn OFF. However, afterward, nothing seems to change. It is still not region free. Strangely enough, it kept switching between Region 1 and Region 3 depending on which DVD disc was in there last. But still, it does not play other region discs.

Anyone know how to hack this DV-S755Ai? Help, thank you so much in advance.



PostRegion code hack posted by Zaphod, August 15 2003:


Wow, 111 comments! Not bad.

I was in a hurry when reposting the hack (October 30 2002), so I missed a couple of things from the original message. Most of it you've figured out yourself, but one thing I'd like to add:

When using the Palm as a remote control, you have to be precise because of the narrow IR beam.
If you are certain that the beam did hit the IR receiver, you don't have to keep trying. Just power off, wait a few seconds and then turn the power on. What happened for those of you that kept sending the signal was just an ordinary timeout. The player turns it self off if nothing happens.

Peter (January 15 2003) is right about that my code is "learned". The signal sequence was copied directly to my Palm V from another remote (The one in the shop that usually charges $35 for this operation.), and I haven't tested import of the exported code.

I used the Pioneer DV-454 Pronto CCF file posted by Samuel Ouma on 12/24/02 @ remotecentral.com with my PRONTO PRO unit to sucessfully hack my 47ai. I had to hit the "0" button included in this device file around 20 times from 6 inches away before the unit powered down on its own. Upon power up, the unit is able to play any disc I own (regions 0,1,2,3 and 4). The only issue I noticed is that the PAL video output is considerably brighter than NTSC on my CSF calibrated display, but I can compensate for this discrepency.

Many THANKS, for Peter and all the guys who posted here !

Thanks to you I have succeded !
Finally, my PIONEER 656 is "FREE from any ZONE" !!

I have tried first using an Compaq laptop (it had an irda built in port) and WinLIRC + Peter's codes ...
But It didn't work this way ! Because the laptop has only one COM port free (COM 1) , which is used by USB on default, and not by Irda ... WinLIRC didn't send any data this way !

So i've built the simple transmitter found here : http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html
Then i have connected it to the serial port of my PC .After trying to send the codes with WinLIRC for 3-4 times, THE DVD PLAYER turned off ! When i've opened my 656, it was multizone ! In the menu still says REGION 2 , but i have played an region 1 DVD and it worked well !
I cant belive how easy and simple was all the hacking !!!

Now i can finally enjoy my favorite region 1 DvD's :
- T2 : JUDGEMENT DAY Ultimate Edition THX/DTS
- Pearl Harbor THX/DTS
which I was never able to see on my Pioneer 656 , but only on my PC DvD-ROM !!

If anyone needs some help , I recommand you to use this simple Irda transmitter from : http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html
After you have connect it to the serial port of your PC, use WinLIRC to send the codes to your DvD !
http://winlirc.sourceforge.net/
If you want them all , here you go : www.agurk.dk/pso/backup/pioneer_region_free.rar\

I think this solution works with any DvD Player, only the codes change ! For more codes try here : http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdhacks.php?dvdplayer=&Search=Search

Hint: After importing Peter's codes into OmniRemote and then export them again, do not care that a lot of the codes have changed. It does not matter. The hack works great anyway.

Here are my steps:
- install OmniRemote
- start OmniRemote
- Advanced -> Databases -> Export Category
- start Memo and change the hex-code for button 0 to Peter's Code
- start OmniRemote
- Advanced -> Databases -> Import Category -> IR codes imported: 19
- go to your DVD player and press the O-button in OmniRemote -> the player shuts down and is now REGION FREE


Worked for the first try here!

Hi!
For all of you guys asking for how to do this on Windows XP, I can confirm that it works fine!
I tried Peter's settings (with help of QuickSilvers detailed description), and used a Dell Latitude C800 Laptop (using a built in SMC IrDA device).

A couple of notes.
1. Use WinLirc 0.6.5.
2. Take a look at Peter's first post and create the config file as specified (january 9th, 2003)
3. Follow Quicksilvers description (january 22th, 2003)
4. ONE IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE! Windows XP Hardware installation wizard do not find the "Generic Ir Serial Port" automatically. It shows up as Unknown device. You will have to select a device manually (do not search for it, as Windows XP won't find it). When wizard reports Unknown device, do the following:
1. Click Radio button "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" -> Next
2. Click Radio button "Don't search. I will choose driver to install" -> Next
3. In the list of available devices, select Ports -> Generic Ir Serial Device.

Then installation should be ok. My IrDA device is configured on COM4 (configured in BIOS), and works fine.

I modified a Pioneer 454 with great success. Only worked for me when the power was turned on. The player turned itself off again after sending the codes through WinLirc.

Thank you guys for a great community!

I tried this too with my Palm Vx and codes from the imported Memo file, using OR, and my XV-DV303 is now region free! Whoo hoo! Thanks. Only problem now is my region 1 DVDs play in B&W but I think this a problem with the TV since I have problems getting it to pipe TV sound through my DVD sound system as well.

Cheers

I have a US Version DV-366 and the above code worked perfectly. I simply took my PDA D/Led Omniremote.

Exported my current TV Catergory. Then went in and modifyed it accordingly. then Imported the category and whally one shot one kill. Worked PERFECTLY!!!

Hi,

I have an ageing Dell Lattitude CPi and managed to get it to work with Quicksilver's inf file hack.

The only deviation I had was ;

a) The driver needed to be manually selected (OS is Windows 2000 SP4), as it would not automatically select 'Generic Ir Serial Port'

b) After reboot, it would not necessarily choose the correct COM port. The only one that seemed to work for me was setting it in BIOS to COM4 and then in Advanced settings on the COM port, setting it to COM4. COM3 didn't seem to work.

The main thing is to use the Learn facility first to make sure the ir port is working correctly. Once you have verified this, then go ahead and try the send.

Once i had sent the codes, it did not actually power down, it just hung on the 'Loading' message. I just powered down normally, then powered up again, and it played a region 1 disc, which it wouldnt before.

Thanks Quicksilver, Peter et al.

Instead of devices and softwares described here, I succesfully used (maybe for the first time ever?) a Nokia 6600 mobile phone and Total irRemote for Series 60 smartphones from www.psiloc.com.

Just import Peter's lrc file to irRemote, assign the command 'region' to any button and run it.

yeah, it's just worked for me too. i'm very happy about my regionfree pioneer 454 now.
i don't know how many times i was pressing the "0" button, but it seems more than 50...!!!!!!
thanks boyz



PostRegion code hack posted by brian, May 01 2004:


my DV454 is able to play regions 0 1 and 2
- I only have DVDs with those regions
I didnt have to modify it to play those regions
It may be only Amazon that supplies these

However it did play region 1 in black and white to begin with.
This was because it was outputting in NTSC rather than PAL

Thats why I had to power it up with >>>> pressed.
The menu there forces it to always output in PAL
to suit my TV

Hope this helps

I used this hack for the Pioneer DV-454 and it seems to have worked fine. Not sure if it worked on the first try or not, the player never shut itself down. After 30+ tries I shut the player off manually and inserted a Region 2 Pal disc, and it's now playing on my Region 1 NTSC player.



PostRegion code hack posted by kyriacosmetal, October 07 2004:


The following region hack works on all new pioneer dvd players. Many people don't have a PDA or a Palm, so the easiest way to do a region hack follows:

All you need is a motherboard with onboard IRDA. Most motherboards have an onboard irda connector so all you need to buy is a cheap irda motherboard adaptor ( check http://www.actisys.com/act210.html).

Then you have to modify some ini files:

1) Remove folowing strings from netirsir.inf:

%*PNP0510.DevDesc% = PNP, *PNP0510
%*PNP0511.DevDesc% = PNP, *PNP0511

and replace

ExcludeFromSelect=*PNP0510,*PNP0511,*IBM0002,*IBM0034,*IBM0020

to

ExcludeFromSelect=*IBM0002,*IBM0034,*IBM0020

2) Add to msports.inf to section [Std]:

%*PNP0510.DeviceDesc% = ComPort, *PNP0510, *PNP0511 ; Communications Port
%*PNP0511.DeviceDesc% = ComPort, *PNP0511, *PNP0510 ; Communications Port

to section [Strings]:

*PNP0510.DeviceDesc = "Generic Ir Serial Port"
*PNP0511.DeviceDesc = "Generic Ir Serial Port"

add

ExcludeFromSelect=*PNP0510,*PNP0511

to section [ControlFlags]

When you do this windows will recognise irda port as : Generic Ir Serial Port
If you modified the ini files and windows didn't recognise your irda port as Generic Ir Serial Port then remove the irda port and restart your pc. Windows will now find a new hardware (Generic Ir Serial Port) and install it.

Then type the following in a text file:

Ater hours and hours managed to get Dv 454 from Greece to play Region 1 in colour.
I used Treo 90, OR v2.14 and alot of info. from other posts.
I exported OR TV category to PC and then substituted Peter's Button 0 info.

I do not know if this helped or not but I 'tuned' the OR TV catergory to my DVD Remote or at least some buttons, I think!!!. I am a very new newbie so sorry if this is all rubbish. But it worked.
PS give at least 10 sec before pressing 0 (zero) again as I was for hours just pressing,pressing pressing, not giving it any time to work.

PostRegion code hack posted by rmdiv, June 01 2006:


Using a Palm V and OmniRemote Pro v2.15 I tried everything listed on this site without any effect on my Pioneer 434. It did import all 19 codes, I trained the keys, I trained the power button, etc. All trained keys work but key 0 (with the replaced code) has no effect regarding region. Maybe my player (origionally Region 1, v1.134(4)/AV1:7.00) does not work as most have a player with the origional region 2. If I would know how people actually come up with all these different codes I'd try some myself. After about 6h I am at a loss and giving up :(

PostRegion code hack posted by Scott, January 30 2007:


Thanks for posting this info guys.
Here's my story.

I have a Pioneer DV360 - Region 2

Went to MAPLIN electronics store and bought the RS232 9 way plug, 1N4148 diode, 1.5Kohm resistor & a soldering iron ;o)

I hacked open an old remote control and removed the IR LED.

I then set about creating the IR device as described above
(see here: www.agurk.dk/pso/backup/pioneer_region_free.rar - it's got the conf file, the description and the s/w required)

I had to remove the resistor since the signal was very weak.... here's a tip: use a camera mobile phone to view the end of the IR LED when pressing "send code" (try it on your TV remote) and you'll see the LED flashing !!

I offered up my laptop to the Pioneer DV360 front panel...clicked "send code" within LIRC and..... nothing !
I clicked "send code" a dozen times moving the IR LED along the front panel, still nothing.
This time I turned on the player, clicked "send code" while moving the IR LED (by moving the whole laptop) along the front panel; this time success the screensaver logo switched off and the screen said "-OFF-"...I turned it off and on again.
To check I opened up the Home Menu, Initial settings, Options and click display - it says Region 0 :o)

Finding Nemo region 1 is playing as I type ;o)

Thanks all.

Comments on hack for Pioneer DV-454 initially posted by Zaphod on October 30, 2002:

Thanks all for advice. I used Palm Pilot m500 and OmniRemote 2.15. My DV-454 was Zone 2 and the hack worked straight away with just 1 attempt. Since I was totally new to this kind of stuff, I have a couple of tips for guys like me:

1. OmniRemote - you can easily download a trial version from http://www.pacificneotek.com/. Then just install iton your Palm.
2. Before you start your work, copy Zaphod's code posted on October 30, 2002 into your memopad on Palm. It'll save you time typing the memo into your PDA.
3. When you start OmniRemote, tap on OmniRemote tab and go to following command: 'Advanced'->'Databases'. Click on choose database and it'll show OmniRemote. Then click on export category. It'll export codes into Memopad under file name 'Category-TV'.
4. Go to MemoPad and open 'Category-TV' file. It contains the standard code that you just exported. Replace it with the Zaphod's code that you earlier saved into a file in MemoPad.
5. The key to a immediate success is to remove space behind every Button name line in the memo. Eg. Button name-Enter, Button name-0, etc. Once you have removed the unnecessary spaces, save the memo and start again OmniRemote.
6. Once in OmniRemote, tap again on OmniRemote tab and go to following command: 'Advanced'->'Databases'. Click on choose database and it'll show OmniRemote. This time click to import category. Once import finished, it'll give you a message "Import Complete. IR codes imported: 19". 19 is the number of buttons you are re-training. If it doesn't says 19, you missed some spaces in Zaphod's memo.
7. Just switch your DVD on, go close with your Palm, point it at DVD and tap 0 on OmniRemote. DVD immediately switches off. Your work is done!

I tried DVD's Zone 2 (James Bond - Die Another Day) and Zone 1 (Joe Satriani - Live in San Francisco) and both play perfectly and in color.

Using a One for All modem-upgradable remote, send the WAV file found at http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=download&file_id=5558 to it. Once the remote has been programmed, set it to VCR/2000. Turn on the DVD player via the front pannel or its supplied remote. Using the One for All, press POWER. Turn your DVD player back on once again via the front pannel or its supplied remote. Insert a previously unplayable DVD. It should play as normal. This in my opinion is much more convenient than Prontos, PDAs, celphones, soldering homemade cables, etc. It worked on my Region 1 model DVD player/receiver.



PostRegion code hack posted by Big C, May 08 2008:


Adendum:

Unfortunately, downloadable, burnable, multi-region compatible firmware does not exist for all Pioneer models. Also, when I installed downloadable, multi-region compatible firmware on an internal computer DVD drive, the drive had disc-reading problems ever since. As a result, I personally am not going to install such firmware on my set top DVD players.
