Hi everyone.

Does anyone out there know how to make a Pioneer DVR-645H-S DVD Recorder region free.
I've got one sitting in my lounge, but it's a little frustrating that I can only use it for region 4 DVD's!

Hopefully not in breach of anything...

Bit of google-foo found this. But the most hits were 'too bad, can't' So don't expect too much (nor blame me if it breaks something)

  • Turn On unit and remove any disc in the tray

  • Press the Setup button on the remote control.

  • Move over to General using the arrow keys

  • Select Basic

  • Press Display - this will display your region and firmware version.

  • Press Condition/Memory (nothing is displayed or changed on the screen)

  • Press the Region # required (i.e. 2 for Region 2, 0 for multi etc)

  • Press Menu to store

Its also listed here as working with the generic Pioneer changing IR codeset. For that, you on your own.
