possibly being cannily delayed by Philips pending the outcome of the DVD forums discussion of PAL progressive ratification, to allow them to ship legit PAL progressive out of the box.

When were the forum meeting? Isn't it this week? How can you find out what they discussed and agreed (or didn't)?

richard your theory could be right, a few months ago there was more info available than now regarding the 963 and for a product about to be launched it all seems very strange, unless they are planning a big launch or have either decided to withhold the product.

wonder what the hold up is technical, marketing or political?

alien abduction??

philips have also had a product page on their website for a while now, and downloadable manuals and images, but its still hidden so is only available if you search specifically for the model number.

So I think its still coming, its just timing.
