Region Free DVD

  medicine man 17:20 21 Jun 2004

Does anyone know how to simply convert a DVD player - not PC - to become multi region. I tried click here but they do not seem to tell how to convert a Sony DAV S300. Your help is appreciated.

* Put the player into Standby mode
* Press 1 and Return on remote for region 1, 2 and Return for region 2, and so on. Use 0 and Return to return player to default region settings
* Press P-Mode and Return to play DVD's with the selected region, auto-switching is Off
* Press Audio and Return for auto-switching On
* Press Angle and Return for MacroVision On
* Press Subtitle and Return for MacroVision Off

I don't have a Sony so can in no way vouch for the effectiveness of this procedure.

Sony's a really difficult to make Region Free yourself. You will probably need to get a company to do it for you.

For a high quality mod, leaders in the field are Techtronics:

Apart from selling fully modded players, I believe they will also mod your existing machine.
