Read that thread

You will end up with a Region free MPEG4 (DivX) and DVD player, even the subtitle (*.sub+idx, *.srt) work with the DivX...

I've done mine and it's ROCKS!!!

This I tried with Pioneer DV-578A.
This confirms what "Phantom and Valjean" says in the post he references above. That the remote hack does not work on US models. Nevertheless, I thought I'd post this information since some people might find it useful.

The same post referenced above mentions he would try to get a remote with the Condition Memory button (which unlocks the region in European models). And here's where I have made some findings. Using a universal remote control like the One For All you can generate this code without finding the original remote.
I used a URC-4021B00 One For All universal remote control but most any of them will do. The beauty of these remotes is that they allow you to send raw binary commands. These remotes come with a "set" or "setup" button (or "magic" button in older models). If you press this button and then press the correct three-digit code of the command you want to send, you can do everything you could have done with the original remote.

I also found out that in some Pioneer models the "condition memory" button is called simply the "condition" button.

So I went to this page to find the code for the "condition memory" or "condition" button:
You don't have to read the whole thing if you don't want to. Here's the code: 161.

Here's how the hack supposedly works:
Of course, make sure no disc is in the player.
1) Go to the Home Menu
2) Scroll down to the Initial Settings menu and perss ENTER
3) Scroll down to the Options menu and DON'T PRESS ENTER
4) Press Display. The Region and Firmware (or ROM) version show up
5) Press Condition Memory and change the region to whatever region de DVD you want to watch is
6) Press Home Menu to exit

So I went to the "home menu", scrolled down to the "initial settings" menu, pressed enter, scrolled down to the options menu (didn't press enter here) and pressed "display" (or "info" in the OneForAll). That showed the region code and the ROM version. Then, using my OneForAll (OFA) I pressed "set" and then 1 6 1. The player just exited all menus and went into screen saver. So, this confirms that the hack does not work in US models. But I thought my learning process could benefit other people.

Good luck!
