    Region hack for Tesco's DVD-212 model required. 19th Sep 13 at 6:54 PM
    Good evening, folks.

    I've been racking my brain for the past 3 hours trying to make my DVD player region-free.
    I've trawled sites looking for anything that may lead me in the right direction but to no avail.
    It's a fairly inexpensive model, no frills, with a Eject, Play/Pause, Open/Close unit interface and a simple remote control.
    Many of the sites I've seen today are either telling me to press buttons I don't have or look for menus I'm not privy to.
    Any help would be fantastic.

    I don't know if it helps, but a friend has a Tesco integrated DVD-TV, and the firmware is obviously the same as Cambridge Audio used in their DVD players.

    Not all DVD players can be made Region Free.

    I appreciate your fast reply but sadly not. After searching through C.A's region hacks there's not much there for me. Thanks anyway, bud.
