I took my region free DV-717 from The Netherlands to the US. Here I bought a beamer and could finally try out the RGB output...or so I thought. I am using a scart to RGB cable, but it does not seem like the signal is working. Initially I get a scrambled screen with pink and stripes, then the beamer decides there is no signal I went to the set up menu and chose AV1 output RGB...no result. The S-video works fine, but when RGB is available... Ideas anybody? Hidden menu's maybe?. As region free is not an issue here (thus not easily available) I do not really want to get a new player as that means my R2 dvd's will catch dust. Next to that, I do plan on returning to "the old countries" Advice on reference DVD players that are easily made region free is option 2. Thanks!
