A friend is soon going to be visiting from the US. Am thinking of asking him to bring over a Oppo BDP-83 for me.
Amazon.com: OPPO BDP-83 Blu-ray Disc Player with SACD & DVD-Audio: Electronics

The specs state that it can handle 110-240 volts, so no voltage transformer will be required.

Question I have is - is there any Region code hack or kit for Oppo ? Or will I be stuck using only Region A BDs.
What about DVDs - can it be made region code free at least for DVDs ?

Appreciate any info and advice.

Ashish(ashishkesarawani) has already done it with good results. Search for this thread, he has put up pics of the hardware mod as well.
