Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

Now you can make a region-free BD player in a computer with 3 BD players for slightly above $100. Nwewgg has this OEM drive ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135205 )for $40, minus $10 off using code BTEZZZS28. Total for three drives is $108.
Still, you have to factor in the price for software, since this drive is OEM and doesn't come with PowerDVD9. But if you already have a BD drive with software around, then for $72 you upgrade your system to region-free (if you have two more SATA connectors).

Hi:

In the manual page 22, 7-4.
the default pass word is 6666

Also you can reset the player set up.
It is in the BDP-799 set up menu.

Best Regards,
Momitsu Support
-------------------------------------

Sure enough... 6666 works and I've turned the parental control off. And yes, the pasword was written in the maual on said page in a tiny font; I would have never found it on my own!

TLK
This info saved what is left of my hair! My thanks for this post. Now where can I get a owners manual for the 799? I understand HKFLIX is no more. Who sells Momitsu now?

considering their website is gone, I'd say Momitsu is no more, or under a new name somewhere else.

I didn't want to create a new thread so sorry for the off topic post. Are there any reasonably priced blu-ray players that can easily be changed to region free? I have a region free dvd player and all that required me to do was punch in a few numbers. Are the Blu's the same way?

You have to punch in the numbers each time you power it on and want to change regions.

Is there a specific model/brand that is pretty decent?
