Tried Sanderv CD download region free hack on two of my A2 units.
My A2 with firmware 3.0 gives a 2007??? error and could not be modified. Need to downgrade to 2.7 or 2.5?
The unit I had with firmware 1.3 was modded with only the 2nd CD. And while it now does play some of my R2 & R3 DVDs, it will not play many, many of my R1 movies that it used to (RCE block).
I have done probably over 50 different models of DVD player region free hacks, and this is the first one where I am running into constant RCE blocks on movie titles (Barb Wire, Batman The Movie 1966, and more).
Is there a better region hack for the A2 or a workaround for RCE?
Now if I can hack the 3 HD-A3 units I have...

To bypass RCE block after installing firmware 2.501, use the following remote command:
- tray open,
1,3,9, and 1 (Region 1),
(If you have remote beep enabled in the A2 settings, you will hear 4 quick beeps for confirmation).
Unfortunately, it does not retain this setting between power off & on. So you need to do it each time you run into a RCE block SD DVD title.
