Hi everyone, thank you for reading my message.
I recently purchased a Pioneer BDP-120 player from Richer Sounds, UK. This player is suppose to only play Region 2 DVDs as it was purchased in the UK, but it was sold as Multiregion, so I presume it must have been modified somehow. This is great as I have a few Region 1 DVDs from way back that I still want to watch. As it stands this all works; I can play Blu-ray, and all Region DVD.
I would like to update the firmware on this player as it seems mine is fairly out of date. However, I'm concerned I will lose the Multiregion DVD playback as a result if I do. This is based on my assumption that the Multiregion DVD feature is part of a firmware upgrade performed before it was sold to me.
My current version is: BP9060800
Please tell me what you think. Is the Multiregion capability part of the firmware, and will I lose this if I perform the official firmware upgrade? What are my options?
Thanks so much for reading all this, I owe you one big time.
All the best!
