| "Re(1):region-free DVD players" , posted Thu 24 Apr 12:39|
Since region locking is one of the more obnoxious, senseless obstacles inflicted on the home electronics owner, I'm feeling like grabbing a cheap region-free DVD player. I remember hearing that an American store like Best Buy stocks an inexpensive (~$80) DVD player that just happens to be region-free, even if they don't technically say so (but with copious wink-wink, nudge-nudge, if you know what I mean, etc. that it does in fact play all regions). Anyone bought one of this mystery brand? I'd love to pick one up...
You might be thinking of the CyberHome 320.
I know two people who own them and unlocking it is very simple.
Eject the disc tray, then close it (don't know if you have to do that) then hit menu, 1 then 9...then you get a little prompt thing with the numbers 0-7 i think, which are the regions and you set that to 0 and you're all set.
