    No

    A blu ray player is just that - it plays blu rays and sends the digital signal to the tv out connection (mostly hdmi)

    There are a few region b players that can be converted just by firmware updates/patches

    Have you considered buying a multiregion player from here? Linky.

    I personally haven't but many on the AVForums have. If you google them, you should be able to see the reviews for yourself.

    I've used 2 of the LG machines.

    You just enter a code on one of the screens and it drops you into a 'hidden menu' that gives you the option to change the dvd and/or the bluray region.
    They work a treat.

    which lg models are they also what code do you have to use thanks

    Mine is the LG BDX 3200.

    Full info here;
    avforums.com/thr…75/

    Flash with the Ozy firmware (takes about 3 minutes).
    Then...

    Procedure for changing regions (after installing the regionfree firmware)
    1. Power on the blu-ray player.
    2. Press "Setup" on the remote to enter Setup Menu.
    3. Using the remote, enter "8520". A new submenu will appear.
    4. Set DVD region code to "0" for DVD Multi Region.
    5. Set BD region code as required using the remote buttons.
    "1" = Region A, "2" = Region B, "4" = Region C
    6. Press "Setup" button to exit the menu.

    But all the info is in the AVF link.

    I've yet to find anything it won't play, either dvd or Bluray.
