    I've a Panasonic DMR-EZ48V purchased in U.S.A. Want to follow region code hack to play landcode 2 videos.
    Using a Philips branded Universal Remote Control.

    My question. In the suggested step by step, step #3 states, "Hold the magic button on the URC...." What is the MAGIC button, please?

    Your help will be much appreciated!

    Many of those old hacks were:
    1. Only meant for players bought in certain regions.
    2. Never really proven to work.
    This is the internet....cruel people really do get their jollies winding people up.

    Much easier to rip and make region-free. Then you won't have that issue (assuming you reburn to dvdr).

    A more dificult problem would be the fact that you are in USA and those Region2 discs are PAL. The DVR is multi-system, but for it to work smoothly, your TV must also be multi-system.
    Otherwise, you will be forced to do a PAL-->NTSC conversion as well.

    Most cheap DVD players (Chinese) play worldwide PAL/NTSC, once ripped and re-burned without regions.
    Just format left, and it handles that.
    PAL TV not needed.
