Players intended for the the UK market are not multi region. However, there are sellers, who sell non UK versions of the same model, that are multi region. Sometimes, hacks can be found but it is harder to find these for newer models. Hack remotes can be found on ebay for about £15. However, this solution may not be best for your parents.It may have been best to have payed a bit more for a multi region version.

hehe yes I am forced to agree 9_9

However the hack remote looks an interesting option.  Thanks for the tip!

I had no idea this region thing was still going on or is it only for older players ?

I thought region coding had disappeared years ago too.  However it seems to have made a comeback and some modern machines are much harder to circumvent and even need chips changing.

Bazzer, the stock EU version of your Oppo UDP-205 is not multi region. However, multi region non EU versions are available for about £100 more than the stock version. So as you you can see it is not just older players.

Can't see the point of having regional players , something to do with movie copy write ?

Hi Gizza,

yes I tried those thanks but with no success.  I think these maybe for older players that were easier to hack.

but thanks for digging this up :)

You're welcome, Graham, pity it didn't give you the solution.

Yes. To do with the sale of movies/TV series being licensed regionally rather that globally I think.
