Anyone have any luck getting a region free hack yet

The 'open tray and press 9,9,9,9 and then 9' code worked just fine for me.

I'd say they could be worth trying. There was about 10 left when I got mine at around 9.15 this morning...

with regards to the person who mentioned that the manual says it only accepts usb and compact flash cards up to 512MB; yes it does say this in the manual but it is bollocks, i have had a 4GB compact flash card and a 2GB USB stick in the thing already with no problems.

i would recommend going for the S-VHS input if you have a normal SD television, makes a world of difference. Also SCART lead that comes with the unit is crap, invest in a decnet one if you don't have a S-VHS input on your telly.

very happy with the unit, know a few people today who left it too late and were disappointed. at the leixlip branch this morning when i got mine @ 8:15am, there were people buying four and six units at a time

Does the drive not need to be formatted as FAT32 ?


Page 15 of the manual states "The DVD player supports USB memory sticks 1.1 and 2.00 up to a capacity of 512mb" Tried it with a USB hard drive formatted with Fat32, no joy, bit of a bummer. As i thought i had a great little media player for €60.

Give them a call in the morning and see.

Is there a memory capacity on the SD cards it takes?

Again it does say 512mb SD cards only, but it will now read my 1gb and 2gb Memory sticks so it seems a bit of hit and miss.

The remote I got with this dvd player says that the make is a silvercrest KH6058
not KH6057 and I had a 1 gb usb stick working with it. No problems at all.

Just so you all know

I want one..

People who bought 5/6 at a time isn't fair. It was the same with the 360's.

Anyone got one for sale? Put me first in line..
