As you guys probably know the Optoma RD50 and RD65 are still not available in the Netherlands and Belgium. The Benelux distributor is going to have the first Optoma's in April. One very interested news item they told me is the fact that they claim Optoma has solved the NTSC region 1 problem. After reading all the problems regarding this NTSC matter on this Forum, I had notified the distributor about this problem. Last week they told me that Optoma has made a software update somewhere in the beginning of February and that the Optoma now plays NTSC region 1 dvd's flawless when connected with Component and/or DVI/HDMI. Only the S-video connection still gives problems. Razor, maybe you can check this with Optoma in the UK to see if this story is really true. I would like to have this confirmed from different sources before I really believe this.
