    I have noticed a couple of comments on here that have made me think that not all of these are multiregion, is that true?

    If that is the case how do I ensure I get a multiregion version?

    Also before I buy does any one have anything bad to say about it yet?

    Thanks.

    Dont think unbeatable's is multi region, but i have no way to test this, only way to be certain I guess is to contact the retailer you are buying from first. Sound/Picture is fantastic, far better than should be expected at this price point. Only negative point I have is that the amplifier gets very hot on top. Mine is in a cabinet with plenty of clearance on top. Sides are cool, so i suspect this must be how it is designed, on the plus side from that there does not appear to be fan that some 500 model owners have complained about.

    I am looking to buy the DHT-550SD rather than the DHT-500SD, however on looking at the spec I notice the following:
    DHT-550SD - video signal PAL
    DHT-500SD - video signal PAL/NTSC
    Does this mean
    1.you cannot play NTSC DVD
    2. this is not muti region
    3. no progressive scan on NTSC

    :clap:

    reply

    Dear Sir/Madam
    You will fine the DHT-550SD has progressive Scan mode, so you will be able to view NTSC format. However both systems in the UK will play only region 2 disc.
    Please do not hesitate to email if you have any further queries.

    Best regards,

    latest question asked is the problem concerning the noise fron the rear fan reported by others

    Thanks for finding that out. How long for a multi region hack I wonder??

    I thought the fan noise was only on the 500 ( thought someone mentioned that in another thread).
