I'm looking to get a Multi-Region Blu-Ray player that is capable of playing both American and English Blu-Ray and DVD's. Basically, something to play both Region A and B for blu-ray, and 1 and 2 for DVD.
I know that Region B/2 Blu-Ray players can be chipped, but I'd rather not go down this route as I've heard of firmware updates that either prevent the chips from working, or brick the units altogether. I'm also not entirely sure (in todays age of copy protection) of the legality of chipping players anymore.
So if anybody knows of any players that are multi-region out of the box, let me know!
I'm looking for a good brand by the way too, so Sony, LG, Panasonic etc.
Which is definately confirmed for multi region blu-rays and DVD's, and is also guaranteed to work with future firmware updates. So if a firmware update does stop the multi-region working, or bricks the unit, at least I'll have a case to send it back. It's a bit on the pricey side but...well...I've always believed you get what you pay for.
