I own a Philips, HTS 3090, a cranky DVD/DivX player which has almost driven me crazy with the problems she creates. The latest of her tantrums was that she just refused to play every legally purchased DVD that I'd bought recently with the excuse that she was region locked. Heck! I wasnt going to back down with this dimwit of a DVD player playing the fool with me! Off I was to Google which then led me to videohelp.com, a nice friendly database of DVD unlock codes. Soon I was tampering with my DVD player and before she knew it, I'd given her freedom -- to play every DVD on the planet. ;-) Kool aint it?
Cheers to freedom!
