    Go to AV forums they have an entire section on it. Apparently you need the use of a ALL4ONE remote to do it though. Or just read the text above

    is this same for BDP 300 model also?

    As one of the earlier replies said, you can search for Sony Region Free hack on AVForums.com. There is the One4All method (as well as a thread for registering on a list of people who pass a pre-programmed one on via post), but also methods for Pronto and Harmony remotes. I did it myself last night and update a BDP-S350 to region free DVD using a Harmony 525.

    @ Richard MK

    I would appreciate, if you could tell me, where I can find the "magic button" on my Harmony 525.

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,

    Marcel

    i bought the one for all urc 7030 remote and used the hack above using just the last 3 digits on line 7/12/17/22/27 and the hack worked perfectly
