I have seen a number of forums discussing a remote code to get the HT-BD1255 to go region-free (open tray, press 8,4,2,6,9,enter).
I've tried it with 1.0 and 2.06 firmware, I've tried powering off the device prior to entering the code, and I've tried opening the tray with both the remote and the top button. I've also tried connecting to the TV with a composite cable rather than HDMI in case the TV is telling the blu-ray player something.
In all cases, when I look at the setup menu, it tells me I'm in region A/1, and when I try to play a UK DVD I get told:
The disc cannot be played.
Please check the TV system.
Does the hack actually work for DVD, or is it just for Blu-Ray? Anyone got it working in Canada (or the US, I guess)?
