by the way - you can still have youtube fully working with CFW but you will need to launch it from USB drive....
Hi Borland, You mention that you can load youtube from a USB drive. How exactly do I do that? Is there a script that needs to be put onto the USB?

you just need to place youtube_ver0_1__1920x1080__720p.swf script on USB drive and run it via SWF menu option. dead easy. however as youtube is now present on almost everything including smart tvs, media players and soon - washing machines, fridges and other home appliances I don't think it's terribly useful option!

Pioneer BDP 450 firmware

Dear friends,


I have installed custom firmware CFW_404 which freezes BD disc's during playback, I would like to install original firmware version BDP-450_V02.09 which comes along with the player. I downloaded this software from Pioneer website and tried to update by using USB. But the custom firmware CFW_404 says already update no update required and I can't install original firmware.


Please help to install the original version of this player


Thanks
Srikar

I have a 62FD. I have questions
1. How to make it BD region free and DVD region free?

2. How to make it convert blu ray from PAL to NTSC? Can the 62FD play 1080i 50 PAL blu ray?

Thanks

Just tried it, the fw is 2.05. It can play 1080i 50 pal. I found I don't have any region b Bluray, is that better just keep original fw?

Please read above. Treading very close. There is no way to make players region free with out a software hack or hardware modification. Hack talk is not allowed in the forum areas.

Personally, I disagree with AVS on this issue and I think moderators should reconsider their policy. For a start, labelling members as hackers as if we are all dangerous subversives bent on destroying the movie industry is ridiculous. Superficially, in some countries, it is illegal to bypass region-coding. But, this is a very grey area, and you would be hard-pressed to find any prosecutions, even of dealers selling hardware (just glance around the internet or ebay for example). We can all hope and pray this pointless exercise is finally ended at some point. In fact, with international movie streaming and downloads, what is the point, or the justification, or defence anyway? The movie distribution network no longer needs to be protected.

The whole region-coding fiasco has been stupid from the very beginning and the whole planet, other than studio executives, agree. Hence DVD players where you can tap a few numbers on the remote to defeat the coding. Hardware manufacturers just playing lip-service to the issue.

A lot of AVS members will possess a region-free player and this is for various, completely justified, reasons. From my point of view, I sometimes want a film that is not available in my region. If studios want to stop that, then they should make the film region-free! Often versions vary across regions, such as Criterion Region A blu-rays for instance, or versions from the same studio with different extras for different regions. Again, if the studios want to prevent this, then issue the same content on all the region issues. Of course, many AVS members will have their own, equally valid, reasons for wanting a region-free player.

Instead of haranguing your members, lets move the topic on: Let's support the arguments for region-free discs (and some studios issue all their blu-rays as region-free) so we don't have to hack our firmware or buy modded players. You can gladly pass my details on to the Canadian or UK authorities if you wish. I'd love a day in court where they try and prosecute me for altering some hardware that I have purchased, so that I can play a disc that I have also legitimately purchased.

AVS should be about videophiles for videophiles, not supporting some minority idiotic movie moguls who have already lost the moral argument and whose systems have already been bypassed for years, and are out of date the moment the format is invented. If moderators don't want to support their members, then just signpost them to a forum that will help them...

AVS does not support piracy, hacking, selling hacked firmware, asking for hacked firmware in the forum boards, or linking to forums that support hacking players. AVS does not ban buying a pre-modded player (we have a dedicated thread for region free players) or hardware mod (Oppo) that does not alter the manufacturers' firmware. This will not change. There are threads for copying your personal Blu-ray discs including removing region coding in the streaming forum (even though bypassing copy protections is illegal in many countries). You can also use the pm system to contact individuals.

I fail to see how a hardware hack (politely called modding here) is any more legal than a software hack. Both processes achieve exactly the same aim.

Living in the UK, I can legally purchase and import a US blu-ray player (or, even better, a Hong Kong one - then I won't have to worry about buying a transformer), I can also legally purchase and import a US blu-ray film, I can then perfectly legally watch my region A movie on my region A player. Of course, I will have to retain a region B player to legally watch my region B films on. That is how senseless the whole region coding debacle is; and, of course, who wants two blu-ray players on their rack?

PM is a good point, as you will often see mentioned the whole problem about not being able to PM until you have clocked up multiple posts. Hopefully, I'm getting close now and welcome anyone who wants to contact me for help (related to this thread).

The hardware mod for Oppo bypasses the components without altering the machine. Oppo has not objected to the mod when players have been sent in with it. Software alters the manufacturers' software or firmware. We have always had a no hacking policy, it has been enforced the past few years after complaints from regular users about turning the threads into hacking and complaints from some of the representatives. The CFW reverse engineered firmware also removes restrictions in place by the BDA in addition to region coding.
