Would you like your Panasonic DMP-BD30 Region free blu without chipping? Read on. So i have a Panasonic DP-BD30 machine, which has already been chipped for region free playback (by changing the region through the remote control), however after playing around i've found a way to make the machine region free (BD playback only) on ALL models, no chipping required and here's how: put in the disc, once you get the wrong region message, press the BD/SD button at the bottom of the remote, you will then get a message saying no SD card inserted, here press the return button, at this point it will take you back to the panasonic main screen, then press the top menu button, and hey presto, your disc will start playing, i've done this on about 8 or 9 discs now and it plays all of them, i think this will work on all panasonic players that have a SD/BD button, probably other players as well, but obviously i can't confirm, it definately works on this model so if you guys want a region free player then this has got to be the way to go (with pal and ntsc playback as well so no problems with the extras!!!), i'm sure you can pick this model up pretty cheap now. let me now how you get on with this.
