Last year, I ordered a Sharp BD-HP25u RegionFree BluRay DVD Player from

http://www.220-electronics.com/blu-r...ay-player.html

I have had no issues with it. DVDs play automatically regardless of the region. With the Blu-rays, you have to hit a couple of buttons on the remote before playing. Super easy and stays region free when you upgrade the firmware.

How do you do this? Do you need a specific program to change the region code?

^^ Anydvd HD can remove the region code, you just need to copy and burn it to a blank disc then.

there are probably other ways too.

Burning a Region locked BD to a blank BD-R seems like a huge waste of time and money.

Yup…no problems here either. I actually have been using it frequently too.

So I got my Oppo BDP-103. Although quite pricey, this is one solid piece of hardware. I'm really happy with my purchase, and Bombay Electronics shipped it super quick. It plays my import blus without a hitch. It's nice to know too that it supports 4k if I ever get a new set in the future. If I had to pick a downside, it would be that the included wireless USB dongle is weak as hell. I'll be buying a better one in a week or so.

Highly recommended if you have the extra bucks.

Hope this helps.
Oops. No, I meant do you know any way to make the subtitles not play at all by default?

I can turn them off with the remote, but I'm lazy and it's annoying to do that with every DVD (and they turn back on when I pause/ff/rew etc.).
