I don't know about other Pioneer retailer not carrying x50 series which are not region free. The retailer at my place does carry x50 series which are region free for bd playback. No matter is Mod/chip. The important thing is region free. These will make us bd buyer who order uk bd not to worry about not able to play. It is also cinavia free. If amazon( a big listed online company) can sell x50 series which are region free, I assume our retailer here also selling it. You can imagine the bizness those who carry non region free going lose to those who carry it. These does remind the days when dvd was first introduce here.
Am I missing something? Are you referring to official product (authorised dealer) or third party reseller?
Cinavia compliance is MANDATORY
for BDA licensing agreement as of FEB 2012, for the so called ACSS encrytion crap.
Region free is a non-issue, KOGAN did it openly and LEGALLY . But its different with cinavia, its a violation of BDA agreement.
Cinavia Free bdp-150 MUST be tampered with chinese firmware 4.0+ or 5+. Worked with 140/150/440/450. It has to be activated,means need $$. The reseller may quote you with much higher price for this.
CAREFUL!! there are lots of FAKE Activation Free firmwares circulating in the web that can turn your player into useless chunk of metal.
Mind telling us the 3rd party resller? These goods they are selling are OPENED BOX, and tampered with CFW for CINAVIA free. Means they willl lose internet functions , youtube , netflix... who use them anyway... lol
Tamperring with unoffcial alteration will also void your warranty.
BUT buyers must be WARN!!This post has been edited by Mea Culpa: Feb 25 2013, 09:33 AM
