I have a (stupid?) question. I bought this DVD Player from Sony recently and tried the Codes I found on this Homepage,(because I have a Region 1 DVD, but a Region 2 player, as usual here in Europe).
I have a All4one-Remote, but it's a rather cheap and stupid one, it has only 3 Buttons to set devices on (in the code hack of this HP, I'd need 5, right?) Do I need to buy a new one, with 5 devices I can programm, or is there any way I can use this code with only 3 of them? (TV, VCR, DVD)
Maybe I get this totally wrong, because I am not an English-speaking person. Can you help me? sadly, there are not many Boards in German, so I came here. Apologies for my bad English :O
This is the Hack I talk about, by the way: https://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/sony-dvp-ns708h/9414
greetings and thank you

I have some information for you to think about, but not really a definitive answer to your question.
1) Sony and Samsung DVD players are currently the most difficult in the world to unlock for multi region play.
2) Some DVD players can never be hacked.
3) Some hacks worked in the past but don't work now because of hardware changes by the manufacturer.
4) Sony typically requires a special remote to make the hack work, but I know nothing about the remote. Because of #3, there is some chance that even if you buy a special remote the hack will not work on your player. Your remote probably will not work. I think there is a requirement for the codes to be entered quickly and this is why you need to program 5. If you enter 3 codes you will not have time to enter the next 2 codes.
So if you buy a remote that allows you to program 5 codes you will have the best chance for success, but nobody can guarantee you that the codes will work and your player will unlock. You will have to try it and see what happens.
Thank you very much for the fast answer =)
Then I guess I try it again with a 5 program-remote. This is rather stupid, when I buy a DVD Player I want to be able to watch DVDs from every region =( I won't buy a Sony or Samsung next time then...not very customer-friendly.
Thank you very much!
