    Hi All,

    I have recently purchased a Boston Acoustics Avidea 610 system, I
    live
    in Kansas City, MO now but I'm an ex-pat from England. First thing I
    did when i got it setup was play some of my UK (region 2) DVD's, all
    was fine, they played great. Now, after playing some regular US
    (region 1) DVD's I can't play my UK DVD's, I get a "wrong region"
    message. I called the Boston Acoustics helpline and they basically
    told me that it shouldn't have played my UK DVD's in the first place
    as it was bought in the US.


    So, somehow the DVD player got set to Region 1. Does anyone have any
    info on how to reset the region code on this DVD player ? Obviously
    Region 0 would be the best option so that I can play anything on it.


    Any help/advice greatly appreciated.


    regards
    Paul

    Send it back, ask for a refund and say that it wasn't mentioned anywhere
    in the docs that it would lock you out, unless it DID mention it
    somewhere, in qhich case you're prob screwed.
