I bought this machine from Amazon for use over here in the USA, and was disappointed that the Multi-region firmware was not already installed. So decided to do it myself. Region A Blu-rays played fine, but region-2 DVDs produced a "Wrong Region Code" error message.
I installed the BDX1200_APP Multi-region upgrade, but immediately found (even before inserting a DVD) that the image was distorted - the menus and screen-saver were visible, but flickery, unstable and unwatchable.
I am guessing that the machine is now playing out PAL or something right? I believe my Samsung HP-S4253 plasma TV is an NTSC unit, and that this may be
This has all turned out a little disappointing because my previous Multi-Region DVD player (Philips DVP5140 - now sadly dead) played back perfectly on this TV.
Even worse, I cannot find the original firmware for this machine!
