  1. I've studied the thread:
    https://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/lg-bp250/12580

    But there are contradictory posts as to whether this will work for the LG BP 250. Is there any risk in trying it? IOW, can these hacks (playing a specially burned CD) damage the player?

    what country is your player from ??
    it'll be just for the DVD side of the player, the blu-ray side will still be locked.
    there shouldn't be any risks, not that I've seen.

  4. I'm in UK and it was bought in UK.

    So, if I can get that hack to work (I will try it soon) it will still be unable to play some of my son's Blu-ray discs bought in USA?

    Is there no hack for blu-ray players?

    BTW, is that the correct term, or are these called 'BD players'?

    'BD Player' is just an acronym for Blu-Ray Disk Player.

    Can not answer your Q. re availability of hacks for the Blu Ray side of players but there are available specially adapted players that are not supported by the original manufacturer.

    the hack is only for the DVD side of the blu-ray player, it will have no effect on
    blu-ray discs just DVDs.

  7. The industry has a very tight grip on region free hacks for playing Blu-ray discs. There are only a few players with hacks for that. And most of those hacks can't be done from the standard remote control. It's something you should have looked into before buytin a Blu-ray player.
