Re: Panasonic DMP-BD60 is Capable of Playing Region B and C Disc.

Sexy Beast (Region B) does not work using this method with my Panasonic player.

It works on the Seiki player, of course.

FYI if you want Sexy Beast on Blu Ray Region A, it is coming out Aug 13th in the USA on Twilight Time (Screen Archives).

Something else to look forward to from this label is Oliver! coming out Nov 12th.

Re: Panasonic DMP-BD60 is Capable of Playing Region B and C Disc.

Silent Hill Revelation 3D FRENCH Steelbook works on my BDT210. Sweet! Thank U "LOSINGMYMIND"!!!

FYI:
it has an audio commentary, at another forum people were saying that it was text commentary.
forced French subtitles can be eliminated by changing to English with Audio button on remote and not using the Audio Menu.
a lot of Features/ French subtitles on features


could not override "FROM DUSK TILL DAWN" French 3-disc Steelbook

I'm gonna give the hack a try on my Panasonic DMP BD-55 Blu-ray Disc player.
Fingers crossed.

Re: Panasonic DMP-BD60 is Capable of Playing Region B and C Disc.

Bumping this old thread to note that this Arrow reigon locked BD played in my Pansonic BD 65:



I waited for the error screen to come up and just pressed "Top Menu" button after that. The extras worked too although I didn't watch all of them or the entire film.

I ordered "The Fury" (Arrow Video version) so I'll try that one out whenever it arrives and note whether or not it works.

Re: Panasonic DMP-BD60 is Capable of Playing Region B and C Disc.

Another Arrow Region B bluray worked on my Panasonic BD 65 player:



I put it in and got the "This can only be played with a Region B player" message. Pressed STOP and then TOP MENU and the disc and movie played without issue. I watched a few extras and they played fine as well.

FYI, I've seen this disc on sale several times a year when amazon.co.uk runs it 2 for 10 pounds sale. Even with shipping, it beats paying $30 for the Twilight Time which is pretty much bare bones outside of a trailer and an isolated score.

This works (as have all Arrow Region B Locked BD's I've tried) with STOP and then TOP MENU:



This one works with pressing STOP twice and then pressing TOP MENU twice:

Re: Panasonic DMP-BD60 is Capable of Playing Region B and C Disc.

I'm so happy that this trick works for so many of you. Unfortunately, I have never been able to get it to work for Rolling Thunder, the one Region B disc that I have. I just tried again. I hadn't given it a try in a couple of years and still have the same lack of success. However, I finally am dead set on going Blu-ray region free. I have ordered some Arrow discs and look forward to testing those. I hope it works. If not, I think I'm finally ready to purchase another player. I just wish there were more affordable 3D player options. Oh well. Fingers crossed.

What is your price range for a 3-D Region Free BD/DVD player?

Re: Panasonic DMP-BD60 is Capable of Playing Region B and C Disc.

Got The Train and Rollerball (1975) as a part of the Arrow sale. Both play on my Panasonic BD-65 with a simple button hack:

After you insert the disc in you will be hit with a black screen that says: This disc will play in Region B players only.

Press STOP to return to the Panasonic main menu.

After you return to the panasonic menu, press STOP then TOP MENU and the main menu of the movie should load.

The extras (didn't try them all out) should be playable and viewable as well as the film.

To be honest, I'd love to spend less than $100, but I realize that's pretty impossible. I guess the lower the better. I've looked at some of the websites that sell region free players, but I just never feel quite comfortable purchasing from one of those places, not knowing anyone who has.

I purchased some Arrow discs in their last sale, and I can confirm that the following discs were able to be played through the menu button trick (apologies if any have already been mentioned):

Theater of Blood
Deranged
Spider Baby

I tried my Region B disc of Rolling Thunder again and still had no luck, but the fact that I can play region-locked Arrow titles on my player is a pretty good consolation.

Not quite true. There is 1080i/50hz high def, which is in the HD/Blu-ray spec in most countries outside the USA, especially countries with 50hz electric (like the UK). US compatibility with 1080i/50 is not mandatory, so some US players cannot deal with 1080i/50 at all, some convert it to 1080i/60, some output it only at 50hz (meaning you have to depend on your TV being compatible) and some players (like the Oppo) give you the option to choose whether you want to output 50hz or convert it to 60hz.

but these machines don't play PAL with current firmware. I was unable to play my French "Very Long Engagement" BD. I suspect it must start with PAL content. This workaround works for discs that rely on hi def content.
According to another forum, the DMP-BD60 will play 1080i/50, but will only output it at 50hz, meaning if your TV isn't multi-system compatible, you won't be able to play those discs. There's a lot of Region-B UK television blu-rays that are 1080i/50 rather than 24p.

I think I remember hearing that *REC is a 1080i/50 disc (isn't that one that's on the "won't play" list below?).
