Happy Region Code Day26 May 2002
I'm happy. SEG has released new firmware for my Hollywood II DVD player that makes the region code setting configurable. I can now watch those DVDs I picked up in the States on my last couple of trips. Mama will be overjoyed (actually not; she and I don't have the same taste in movies).
Update: If you can read German, this entry at dvdboard.de gives the details on changing the region setting.
