I'm currently looking at getting a second hand DVD-32r. I have the serial number from the guy that is selling it, and will check this against the help desk on Monday (nobody seems to be answering today). Is there a way of telling which build number the player is, or the age of the player from the serial number? Or is there a better way of doing it? Apparently the player was purchased in Nov 2002, and has recently been back to Tag and has "been entirely revised and updated". I'd like to get a diffinative answer to it's age and build, as the last couple of emails I've had from the seller have started to put doubts in my mind (I'll explain): I asked what the revision and update involved, and what Tag did to the player and he say's doesn't know (apparently, he's not technically minded - but his dealer knows all about it). I aksed him the colour of the puck (from an earler thread in the archives) and he responded with the following: "The pluck is silver, which is why it went back to the manufacturer for an overall upgrade (on the other hand, it would be easy to change the pluck and pretends that it is a later model)." This seems to indicate that he know's more than he is letting on about the refurbishment, but it's the part in brackets that worries me the most. Obviously I would go and demo the player before I part with any money what so ever, and at least he is happy for me to do this. Any advice from you guys would be greatly received.
