To keep it short, that is the way most tvs are wired nowadays, so you are out of luck. You are limited even on Bluetooth connections to only two headphone sets. There are some ways around it though if your tv sound output is going to a decent receiver with its own speakers.

Use code search to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.

DVDs come imprinted with a region code for the geographical area they are sold in. DVD players sold in the same area(s) have the same region code. If you purchase DVDs made for a different region code, they will not play on your player. This is done to prevent piracy and copyright violators. Players can have their region codes changed, but then anything you have already will not play, and you are usually limited to three or four region changes before the player will not allow any more.

Here is a link to a Wikipedia article explaining Region Codes in more detail....
