LG DR7823W Region protection

Hi there

Could anyone tell me if there is a firmware update for this model DVD recorder.
It is limited to REgion 2 only, but one can purchase other region DVD’s in retail stores here.

thanks

Hi Carlos

This model appears to be sold only in South Africa, so there is little information on it on the web. A common region hack for LG [B]players[/B] is listed below, don’t know if it will work on your unit or not.

[li]Empty tray
[/li][li]Press 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9 and the region number, 0 represents multiregion
[/li][li]Press Pause
[/li][*]Turn off, wait a few seconds and turn on

you might try this utility from Vso it will search for firmware update for you and its free vso inspector
