    Hi all,
    Im new as a member to to this forum and have it admit im impressed with how fireindly everyone is. Can you suggest a good alternative to my pioneer 636d which has brocken down after 4 years loyal service. The disk loads then the whole thing freezes through the copytight notice. i can chapter etc etc and getabout 2 sec then freeze again.
    If the repair cost is above £70 then were just gonna bin it a get a new player. Any suggestions. You can get more bang for buck this days, which player gives the good audio performance of the old one. I am gonna spend £100-200. Preferably multiregion and optical out audio.
    Kit attached is crappy matsui TV ( I KNOW but we were IMPRESSED with the picture qual 6 years ago). Sony HTK215.

    Cheers Dale

    In a like for like sense, the £150 (and less) Pioneer DV575 does more than the 636 ever did but after the 636 you may be a little dissapointed at the build quality. The real successor to the 636 is technically the 668 which hovers around the £350 mark but that is more than you really want to spend- its a nice player though. Other units worth considering would be the Toshiba SD-340 which is pretty cheap but has a good picture and the Denon 1910 which has a digital video output as well.
