A Blu-ray player is crippled when manufactured to only play discs created for the same part of the world that the player will be sold in. You can make the Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray player able to play discs from any "region" regardless of which part of the world the disc is intended for. The procedure involves altering the firmware with a file downloaded to a PC. None of the other functions of the Blu-ray player will be affected.
