Customer Question
I have a fairly...

I have a fairly large collection of DVD's a fair few of them are Region 1, and I would like to know if there is a hack for Yahama BDS677

Technician's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Home Theater Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

I was disappointed to see that according to the websites there is no hack for this machine, perhaps you can supply me with a solution.

Technician's Assistant: I'm an assistant to the Home Theater Technician. I work with them to help customers like you.

Perhaps they can help me?

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Home Theater Technician should know?

My DVD player is connecti

Technician's Assistant: OK. Got it. Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Home Theater Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
