Can this player be hacked to play multi-region DVDs?

Does this have onlive

Banned

doesn't support Netflix and will never get 4ondemand/ ITV player so voted cold.

I have two of these - great little players.

Yes, they lack some internet based options but, on the other hand, they have excellent USB media capabilities - I have a 2tb drive connected to one and have yet to find a file it won't play.

Does it support DLNA?

Same one in tesco with free blu rays

With £15 code comes to £75

Currently own a 'smart' (i.e. less dumb) Sony TV, I can tell you that their smart functions are rubbish. Sluggish, slow, terrible picture quality, poor content and unresponsive.

Cold from me, sorry.

Really? My sony TV streams IPlayer and Lovefilm content. Not HD quality, but very watchable on 40"

I've seen better internet TV devices, but I've also seen far worse.

Go on, submitter, please tell me how this player upgrades the quality of my DVDs. Enquiring engineering minds want to know.

Be aware Sony use Cinavia, may affect your viewing enjoyment.......;)

It up-scales it so it looks like you are watching a DVD on an old CRT screen, i.e. not pixelated. It's real magic.

Samsung smart TV 's don't so assuming their players won't either.......why would they ? no vested interest in hollywood and a plus for sales.

Seriously ? What model set have you got ? Have you had it checked out for a fault ? updated the firmware ? That sounds very wrong..

A friend got one of these allot dearer but it takes ages to load anything or select the internet, often you wonder if it has turned on as it takes that long to come on. It is worth the £10ish more for something like the Sony s370.

Does this have wifi? Or if I use a splitter on an ethernet cable would that work?

Do you own a PS3? Compare the iPlayer app on that to your TV, if so. Astounding, the difference.

Got one of these when on sale in Argos, good player, internet and usb options work fine. Only drawback is the lack of wifi and having to use my LAN cable.

The Lovefilm on my Sony is better than watching it on computer, in general. I don't know about the HD streams they've introduced as I haven't tried one on computer yet and Sony devices are still waiting for it.
It also does have BBC HD on the iplayer app so you can select HD with some progs. Surely your TV can only show BBC at the resolution they release, no matter the device, so the BBC HD stream would be the same?

Can you hack it for region 1

The tesco deal seems better as it comes with free movies, i have a sony tv which only plays iplayer, the usb and dlna feature is use less, usb only shows photos and dlna only shows photos and plays music.. I have yet to find a video format it will play and i have tried a lot of standard formats.. With that said i buy a sony tv again as the picture quality seems better at least in my eyes...

The problem I find with my Sony Smart functions is that the 'apps' aren't apps at all. They're just spoofed web pages and due to how webpages are displayed, there is a natural loss of quality and functionality.
