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)?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
