Need help with my Toshiba 4900 remote hack...Please

I am sorry for starting another thread on this matter but I wanted to be sure it was seen and not passed over...

I recently purchased a 4900 and last night I tried to watch the region 2 Delicatessen with the remote hack. I know there is a way to make it permanently region-free with the burned CD and all, but I do not currently have a computer to do it so it will have to wait...In the meantime, I want to use the remote hack to watch other regions.

I put in Delicatessen and when the "Check Region Coding" message came up, I pushed "Menu", then "1", and then "Play", but the only thing I got was a little red not allowed symbol (circle with diagonal hash mark through it) in the right hand corner. I pushed display and tried to pick a track, then play. No good. What am I doing wrong? I even tried pushing the buttons simultaneously. Please help. I bought the machine from Frys about a month ago. Is it possible that Toshiba fixed the hack? Any help is greatly appreciated. thanks....

I had no problem playing Delicatessen. I just hit top menu, menu, ad nauseum, until it started. This is, of course, before I used the CD to fix the problem permanently.

You might have to repeat the patterns a few times. The permanent solution is much better, you should implement it as soon as you can get a CD to alter the region setting.

Regarding the CD solution - is there any danger of this causing permanent damage to the player? I have been leary of doing this for that reason.

No, as long as you use a good CD image, there's no danger of damaging the hardware.

Definitely do the CD. I've got a 3900 (same player, just doesn't do DVD Audio) and I did the CD. It beats having to fight with it to play a disc. With the extremely high quality picture and a trouble free region hack, this has got to be the best player I've ever owned. You can have it when you pry it from my cold dead hands.

Thanks for everyone's responses. I finally got it to work with the [Top Menu] [1] and am now able to enjoy the beauty that is Delicatessen. Now the only problem is where to start with all the other titles I want from other regions...Am so excited to finally be able to get more DVDs....Thanks to everyone for turning me on to this player...
