After reading on this forum the comments for DVR 520 (which I believe is the same family) I ordered up the disc from dvdchips for 20 quid and my only region 1 disc now works fine. It arrived in the post the next day so I had my machine upgraded within 24hrs of hitting the search engine! Their step by step guide is a doddle too. Can't say fairer than that!

Some facts:
The region hack is for PAL only.

I can send the firmware on CD for region code hack, but because of the shipping costs I will have to charge 15 Euro.
The firmware works on DVR-420H, DVR-520H and DVR-720H. I will also send you the procedure how to install the firmware.
