I'm sure this has been asked before, but I couldn't find this specific model in a search as to whether it could be hacked from a Region A to play Region B blu-rays. Model Sony BDP-S590. There are some sites that say Sony can be programmed region free using the remote, but there are different versions and, frankly, I trust the info on this forum more. Thanks for any. I see Oppo will no longer be in the business, and I'm not anxious to expensively replace my unit for just a few desired titles, but if there is a hack or another domestic model that I can switch to that can easily be converted, I'd be curious. The region B release of the complete Northern Exposure series with original music got me re-interested in this topic.
