PostRegion code hack posted by hammer, December 16 2002:


This works with a Pronto remote, use ProntoEdit for the codes...

- Program individual hex-code (below) into five chosen buttons
- Put your DVD-player to standby mode (main power on and red light
above it)
- Push programmed buttons sequentially from one to five (the player
starts up)
- Do it again: Push programmed buttons sequentially from one to five
(the player goes back to standby)

The player should now be multiregion!

Here are the hex-codes:

PostRegion code hack posted by Nigel Shearman, December 22 2002:


The previous hack works but it took some figuring out. Used a sony CLIE and omniremote software. The software can be obtained from the following URL:-

http://www.pacificneotek.com/software/OmniRemote.zip

Any palm pilot will do. Create a new section for the DVD player and create 5 buttons. Train the CLIE to recognise the buttons to be numbers 1 -> 5.

Use the advanced->databases [export category] to export the data to memopad. Sync you palm and paste the data into memo pad form.

Button name-1
0000 0068 0000 0015 0060 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 0018 0018 0018 0030 0018 0018 01AE

Resync your CLIE or palm and then start omniremote. Use advanced->databases [import category] and import the updated config.

With the DVD player in standby. Press button 1 -> 5 twice in turn e.g. 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5. If it has worked the DVD player will switch on and show "SUCCESS" on the display. Repeat this again and the DVD player will revert to standby.

Congratulations, you now have a hacked DVD player that can play multiregion disks.

The Hack described by Nigel Shearman works fine, but playing NTSC Code 1 DVDs using the S-VHS output is only black and white.

The RGB (Scart) Output works fine.



PostRegion code hack posted by Dave Lawrence, January 28 2003:


I've tried to hack this DVD with a Sony Clie using omniremote, pasting the hex codes into the memo pad various ways, but still can't get it to work.

Any suggestions greatly welcome?????

On this page you 'll find a technical manual to hack your DVD player

Also for the DVP NS-305 and the DVP NC-615



PostRegion code hack posted by Badblues, February 06 2003:


The five button code hack, listed above, worked on my NS405 using a philips pronto.

Good luck



PostRegion code hack posted by Jackalope, February 14 2003:


It'possible with Pocket PC2002.You also need "TV remote controller 5.2"( 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 5.2" 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.

-Program 5 buttons with the code posted by hammer.
-Power on the player.
-Push 1122334455 (the player power off)
-Push 1122334455 (the player power on and show success)

My player is now regionfree ! But I have and TV that isn't compatible with NTSC (B/W) GGGRRRRRRR !

:-)

I can confirm that the Hack posted by Nigel Shearman has worked flawlessly from the first time with my Treo Handspring and omniremote 2.07...
Great work. Thx Nigel.



PostRegion code hack posted by Kirk, March 19 2003:


I got the hack to work with a Palm Vx. However, there are two suggestions I'd give. First, after syncing the Palm, use the Memo Pad to edit the data. For some reason I got extra spaces after every line. Make sure the cursor sits against the last character in each line and that there are no added line feeds at the end of the data. Second, add a sixth button for on-off. By using another button, you can guage the distance for successful reception of the codes. After removing the extra spaces and line feeds, and getting the correct distance, the hack worked.



PostRegion code hack posted by Jackalope, April 01 2003:


Hans, for your information WinCE = PocketPC.
My post (Feb 14) explain how you do that with a iPAQ !






PostRegion code hack posted by Martijn, April 06 2003:


For PocketPC/WinCE users: The Philips Pronto site has a new implementation, so to get the Pronto-edit tool you now have to register at http://www.pronto.philips.com and download it. It is free though (and you dont need a Pronto to be able to register), and the Shareware version of TV remote controller from pdawin.com is good enough too.. Worked like a charm here..

This works great on my Sony ns405

Using a Laptop IR port on a Compaq Armada M700 laptop and bingo it worked !!!!

If you have trouble getting it to work using this method, try starting the program with COM3.

One for All Remote control.

I've just managed to make region free my Sony DVP-NC615 using a one for all remote, Using the code sequences listed above, translated into EFC codes for the one for all.

So any one for all remote users could give this
http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdhacks.php?select=Sony%20DVP-NC615 (post dated August 02 2003)

And it should work for this model too, as from the posts above it uses the same codes.



PostRegion code hack posted by KungLao, September 10 2003:


The first hack posted by Hammer can also be performed using a Marantz RC5000 remote. (Philips Pronto clone)

I had to program the hex codes by hacking the CCF file with a Hex Editor.

Have tried on a region 2 DVPNS405 and DVPNS300 - both worked !

2)Type DVD Key on the One for all remote
3)Type and hold Magic Key until two blinks then type 994
4)type Magic key
5)Then type 189 and 1 on the remote (to assign function 189 to the "1" Key)you see two blinks
6)repeat steps 3 and 4
7)Then type 255 and 2 on the remote (to assign function 255 to the "2" Key)you see two blinks
8)repeat steps 3 and 4
9)Then type 095 and 3 on the remote (to assign function 095 to the "3" Key)you see two blinks
10)repeat steps 3 and 4
11)Then type 221 and 4 on the remote (to assign function 221 to the "4" Key)you see two blinks
12)repeat steps 3 and 4
13)Then type 079 and 5 on the remote (to assign function 079 to the "5" Key) you see two blinks
NOW COMES THE FUN PART
Your plauer in standby mode use the One for all remote
Type keys 1 2 3 4 5 in sequence
Player displays SUCCESS in the blue display and the player comes on
Type keys 1 2 3 4 5 in sequence and the player goes off.
Unplug the AC power for 5 seconds ( i did this)
Now your player is region free.
I tried with region 1; 2 and 3 and it works like a charm.

This hack also works with SONY DVP-NS330

Hmm my iPAQ 1940 hangs when trying to press the remote buttons in TV remote controller 5.5 with the ccf posted here earlier, I tried making one myself as well with the same result..

stupid bluetooth crap gets in the way I think.



PostOther hack posted by Adam P, March 12 2005:


Just like to say thank you to everyone on here for your help :D

I ended up using the palm hack on the second tutorial/post, it took me ages and ages to get it working. I created 5 buttons and changed the HEX pushed the buttons in order, nothing, tried about 10 times...nothing.

I then downloaded the DVD Hack for the OmniRemote, that just crashed my Palm. so I exported the database, changed the HEX codes to the ones given in the second tutorial/post again and tried it. (i have no idea if this is the reason it worked or not, its just what i did and it seemed to work) I pushed the buttons in order, so it turned on and off. Did that about 5 times and then it came up with SUCCESS!i pushed the buttons 11,22,33,44,55 to turn it off. turned it on manually and it worked fine!

I have a Sony DVP-NS405, Using a Tungsten T5 Palm Top and the OmniRemote software.

Thanks again to everyone!!

Turn On the unit with the remote controller
Wait until "no disc" appears in the unit's display
Press Pause, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9

Again, within 5 seconds, press Pause and Power


If the above fails to work then you may wish to try the following:

Put the player into Standby mode

Confirmed working with a DVP-NS36 from Germany , region 2

www.selen.org/sonydvd.html

Used the laptop IRDA port on a Compaq Armada E500. I needed to launch the "winsamp C3" after booting to Windows Me and opening a DOS console. Press the 'r' key to load up the remote.txt codes into winsamp.
I did the 1-5 sequence around 4 times in a row until the player showed Success on the display.
