Just bought this DVD player from Philips for my Hi-Vi requirements that can be made multi-regional at the press of a few buttons on the handset. 1. Open the tray 2. Press "9879", followed by the desired region code ("0" for all regions/region-free/multi-region) 3. Press "OK" It has progressive scan on the component outputs and a co-axial audio digital output for PCM or multichannel usage.The images are pin sharp with finely detailed colours.
