Pioneer DVR-215

Recommended Posts

Can someone please tell me how to make my 215 region free or whatever? I just assumed it was already that way, but a couple of DVDs wouldn't play, giving some region error.

 

Thanks.

Well, theres usually two steps. You need to defeat the hardware region lock and the software region lock.

 

Hardware lock you defeat with modded firmware. Search for 'danger brothers'

 

Software lock you defeat with special software like Anydvd.

Basically what you need to do is get the latest Pioneer firmware (1.18 I think), then use MCSE (Media Code Speed Edit) to alter the RPC settings

 

A nice FAQ:

the links for your drive are in this page:

and you can get MCSE from the links on:
