Great DVD player at a bargin price,
This review is from: Toshiba SD280E - DVD Player (Electronics)
Was looking for a DVD player to replace a nasty cheapo Currys one that refused to play burnt DVD's, ended up buying this Tosh SD270 and i have to say its a great little player.
As i haven't yet succumbed to the "posh telly" influences on the high street the lack of HDMI port didn't affect my decision, it has component connections if and when i do require something to upscale to 720p/1080i (don't worry, i don't really understand that last bit either)
To get this machine to perform as a multi region player simply follow the following instructions
The Hack Procedure:
- Power On
- Open Tray
- Press 9879 0 (0 stands for Multiregion, you may press buttons 1 to 6 to choose a specific region)
- A Message appears stating that "The Reg.No was changed to: [insert whatever region (0-6) you selected here]"
That's all, now you can watch every DVD you please... :)
All in all, for £30Toshiba SD280E - DVD Player ish delivered within 3 days, i refuse to grumble, it looks nice, has played everything i've tried including some DivX stuff burnt straight from my PC, and all in all i'm a very happy bunny
Now if someone could help me find a 32" LCD for around £100 i'll be even happier

yes, thanks for the hack procedure - that is what prompted me to go ahead and buy this machine (to play some dvds brought back from the states so i didn't want to spend a lot) - i was so pleased when it worked - i don't often strike lucky with technology! (the machine is also adequate and has replaced what we already had) thanks again.

You cant upscale using component video connections as the upscaling process is digital - hence done over the hdmi interface.
