I'ld like to re-phrase my question -
How can I make a Panasonic DMR-EX99VEBK region-free, i.e., play and store DVDs from any region?
I can buy a region-free EZ48VEBK , but prefer the HDD storage - but can't find a region-free EX99VEBK for sale.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only... Initially, to my understanding, the UK version of the Panasonic DMR-EX99VEB is already capable of both PAL and NTSC playback/recording. The only requirements is that the TV be likewise PAL and NTSC capable. In some instances, it may require the use of AV OUT jacks.Offhand, have you given this a try; i.e. recording/playing back an NTSC material?Benimur41094.9932952894
Yes, I know the unit will play PAL or NTSC DVDs as will most modern DVD player/recorders. But the UK version will only play Region 2 DVDs, like the US version will only play Region 1 DVDs.
I know other Panasonic DVD player/recorders can be made region-free (i.e., modified to play DVDs from regions 0-6) because they are advertised - but I haven't seen this model advertised as a region-free version.
I understand and am not aware of a region free hack for this particular model.Still, hopefully another member could provide an alternate approach to your concern. I have opted out.Good luck with the Panasonic.This is not an Info Request.Benimur41095.5398572569

Your expert was unable to provide an answer to my question and withdrew from the discussion.
No other expert has come forward to answer my question.
Nevertheless, I note that £23 has been debited to my credit card. I accept that I am responsible for the first 'goodwill' deduction of £1, but in view of the fact that I have not had an adequate response, I ask you to credit the £23 back to my card.
