    Hope this is allowed by forum rules, apologies to mods if not and please don't ban me.

    An elderly friend has a DVD player that is UK so will play region 2 discs. Their son has sent them a copy of some obscure film that he is in only it's from canada maybe US, not sure. Problem is it won't play on his DVD player as it's not the right region code. I know some players can have a series of numbers put into the remote to remove the region coding but that's where my knowlede ends.

    Any great guys out there know where I can find the numbers for a Panasonic DMR-EZ48VEB ???

    All help appreciated and you'll make an old man very happy to see his son in a film, and before the ribbing starts, no it's not that sort of film

    Closest possibly match to the DVD player listed is on videohelp.com, its a long process and requires a programmable remote control (all in one remotes are cheap)

    If it's an original/legitimate copy you are in possession of, rip the region code out of it with DVD shrink or something like that; assuming you do not wish to spend any money, as you are allowed to archive.
