    Hi,

    I have a few Region 4 DVDs (from Australia) and want to know if any Panny RP82 owners have figured out how to bypass (hack into) the unit to disable region code restrictions and enable all regions play. I have a Philips ProntoPro remote, if that helps. If no one has done this, any suggestions on where to go nexxt to pose the same question?

    Thanks!

    Bryan, a mod is available. It requires soldering & isn't a simple hack. The mod won't convert PAL to NTSC, but will play all regions. Try these guys (they have a U.S. office).

    There are a lot of hacks in VCDhelp.com, so you might want to check there.
