Does anyone have any experience with the Sherwood BDP-5004 BluRay player?
Hi Chris and welcome to the Shack :T I was under the impression that it came region free in the first place as standard, hopefully selden can shed some light on this as I am not familiar with this player, it migth turn out to be a code that is required via the remote, but will wait for confirmation.I have this player but I am clueless as to how it can be made to play PAL dvds or Region B Blu-ray. Can someone tell me exactly, step by step, how it needs to be reconfigured to do this? There are some region B BDs I would like to view, if possible.
I can confirm it does play Region B Blu rays. Got one today, movie played with no problems but the extras would not play?!
Unfortunately, it's my understanding that producing region-free players is a violation of the Blu-ray and DVD licensing. That's why unlocked players are usually modifications made by third parties and not by the manufacturers. Supposedly Oppo got into a lot of trouble for advertising that some of their players were multi-region. That's why their BDP-83 is region locked.The Sherwood must be one of the first players to become available that offers the selection of different regions, certainly an excellent option and just wish others would follow suit...
