    Hiya,

    Has anyone heard any news on getting this player sourced from the UK in multi-region guise?

    And, dare I say it....PAL prog enabled?!?!

    I think all the UK retailers are waiting with bated breath for the multi-region hacked PAL progressive firmware.

    No matter what you are told otherwise, they are ALL waiting for the same firmware...I've heard my local Sevenoaks boasting that they would have the 'best' region-free solution (and charge £75 for the privilage!!!!).

    All 3800 hacks are equal unless they also provide macrovision off like the www.dvdupgrades.ch hack.

    Either way I am getting a bit impatient. I hope the delay has been to incorporate the latest chroma-bug fixes.

    Regards,
    Ian Guinan

    p.s.
    www.avland.co.uk seem to be a good place to keep an eye out for a UK source for multi-region Denon. Their website currently has '??' next to region mod, but watch this space.

    Ahhh knackers!!! This is turning into a circus trying to get a decent mid to high end DVD with component prog scan output and mult-region.

    I want....i think:

    Denon 2800 MKII
    Denon 3800
    Pioneer 747

    But, and typically...its a big but (not always a bad thing, J-Lo for instance:D )

    They all seem to hae a draw back......I can just about let PAL prog slide for a while until it is "legalised", but the decent multiregion bit seems to be mission impossible at the mo........and I aint spunking up over £1000 for a DVD :)

    Ho-Hum

    thanks for the feedback anyway chaps

    Don't discount the Philips 962SA, NTSC & PAL progressive and SACD , fantastic picture quality, well worth considering..
