    may just be me but i don't think you can multi region hack a panasonic

    http://www.dvd.reviewer.co.uk/info/multiregion/

    I mean technically you could do it through firmware but most panasonics require a hardware alteration.

    *Although i do not condone nor accept any form of liability for what has been said. Nor do i attempt to say i have done any of the above :roll:

    Gonna make my sig a liability waiver......save me typing it

    with the panasonic ones you need a remote to unlock it. You can rent them for £20, unlock it and return the remote. Do a search and you'll find the sites to get them from.

    if it is a standard remote, like a one for all type, just buy one from argos, enter the unlock code then return the remote under the 16 day money back guarantee and say it didn't work with your old tv.

    u can chip any dvd player & make it multi-region, that's the easiest way
    Don't blame me if I say stoopid things or don't understand... I'm half French, half Pinoy lol

    That's no fun being engaged to a Princess... she’s ALWAYS RIGHT & you're always wrong lol

    guys you can't remote unlock them. That's what i was meaning. You can with 80% of DVD players but not with most of the panasonics. They need a hardware alteration (chipped).

    You can't use the standard remote granted, but you can get a chipped remote that does work with some of the panasonic players.
