Blu ray discs / regions / all-in-one blu ray disc player
Have a couple of queries I'd like to post here:
(1) I just wanted to know - just like we have players such as Pioneer DV 610 which would play almost any format - DivX, DivX Ultra, WMV, WMA, MP3, DVD, JPG, etc, is there any blu ray disc player now which can play of the above in addition to blu ray discs ? If so, which brand / model is it, is it available in India and how much would it cost ?
(2) What about regions on blu ray discs - I found from the internet that for blu ray discs the world has been divided into 3 regions, where North America is in Region 1, UK is in Region 2 and India, Russia etc in Region 3. So even if I get a Sony PS3 today or for that matter any blu ray disc player, I wouldn't be able to play discs from other regions right ? What about DVD regions on these blu ray disc players ? Would these BD players at least be region-free for DVDs ?
(3) If the BD players available now are confined to the regions in which they are sold (ie our blu ray players would play only Region 3 discs), is there a workaround for this like remote control hack codes etc ? There are some companies on the internet which claim to do hardware modification to these players and then sell them for higher than the retail prices.
These companies are mainly in the US and UK.
Would look forward to your replies on the above folks !!

multi-region Blu-ray players are beginning to pop up on a few overseas websites. We're seeing a region hacked Samsung BD-P1400 and Sony BDP-S300 / BDP-S500, each of which are reportedly modified to play nice with BD regions A / B as well as DVD regions 1 / 2. Aside from that, each player looks to be unchanged, but you better believe the convenience won't run you cheap.a multi-region BDP-S300 will demand €599 ($878), while the modded BDP-S500 rings up at €899 ($1,318), and until someone bites the bullet and confirms that these things actually do what they claim to.it's not a just software upgrade it will require mod chip and soldering.
for a ps3 bought in India(region 3) you can purchase all region bluray(A,B,C) form usa they are pretty cheap.

Re: Blu ray discs / regions / all-in-one blu ray disc player
Reviving very old thread. I need help here. Received a few DVDs ( Region 1) /Blu Ray ( Region A) discs from US which just refuse to play on my Sony BD player. Is there any way to get around it? I am even willing to buy a new BD player (any brand) if it plays all-region discs. Any such BD player available in Indian market? Anyone in the know? Please.
