    I Have a Phillips DVD711, and have a region 2 dvd that I want to play on it, is it possible to change the code? If not I have four copies of Roger Corman's "Little Shop of Horrors" for sale, region 2 of course.

    David,
    I'm pretty sure I remember reading somewhere that it is
    possible to do this on the 711. However, I think the region
    code can only be changed 25 times, then the machine locks up. I'll do some checking
    to see where I read this. Also,there is a kit which will convert your Philips player to be region-free. Check dvdkits.com

    Supposedly, pressing "play 1 5 9" will allow the region
    code to be changed up to 25 times. I have also read a rumor
    that there is another code which will permanently disable
    the region lock, but this is unsubstantiated as of now.
    Good luck and let me know if this works!
