Hi Zoners,
has anybody purchased a DVD player lately and found that was multi-zone out of the box?

I bought a Panasonic 6-9 months ago and despite the interweb saying you could multi-zone it, the procedure didn't work for me.

Thanks a mill,

I believe you can take it to a Panasonic repair shop and get it made multi-zoned for free - see I've heard that Panasonic harddrive recorders/DVD players can be made multi-zoned by sending it a sequence of codes via InfraRed using an old Palm device or similar.

Yup - grab your receipt and head down to your local Panasonic service agent. As it's under 12 months old, they will multi-zone it for no extra charge.
If you don't know who your local repair agent is, call the place you bought it from and they'll tell you.
