    On the same topic, does anyone know how to unlock either of these...

    Sony SLV D300P
    Sony DAV FR1

    I've searched all over but can't find anything for these two.

    Try the following link for unlocking codes.

    Even if your model is not there try the nearest to it. Worked with my last player.

    http://www.dvd.reviewer.co.uk/info/multiregion

    Some players though will not work with a code as far as I'm aware and might need some sort of work on it. Had a Phillips before which required one on the internal wires to be cut. (can't remember what one as it was years ago)

    Cheers.
