Hi,[quote=ShadowGuy;2108240]I tried playing a movie I rented on my 182d flashed with philips 2412t firmware. When I opened it up in media player classic it said that my player wasnt capable of playing that region. [/quote]to sort out software related issues, you might try VLC.
I have already patched the philips firmware with 3.4.0 flasher to remove region lock and set book type. I double checked that it was patched correctly and the options dont show up anymore, so it’s patched correctly.
Stupid question: you flashed the firmware you patched?
Besides that: please run either Imgburn or Nero Info tool to check the region code settings of your drive.
If the drive was already locked to a region, this lock might not be lifted if the drive is crossflashed to another firmware. But I am not sure about this at all.
Other option would be to try stock Philips firmware patched with MCSE.
