In the USA, the 14th of June is National Flag Day! flagday.org appears to have fallen to a spammer, so instead I'll send you to www.nationalflagday.com even if THEY observed it on Sunday the 10th (sacilege!).
It's got the non-approved BIOS or whatever hack that does the region free and the VCR friendly set-up I believe. It's a little more complex than just burning the CDR and playing it back, I think. Hell, I didn't really research it that much.
