Was going to buy one of these now that they are going sub £300. However where I wanted to get one they don't do them multiregion and I believe I'm correct in saying there is no easy multiregion hack for these? I can see you can purchase a special one off remote but I can't see anywhere that tells you how to do it yourself with a pda or other remote. Are there no free ways of making it multiregion? Also I've read the component output is a bit grainy. Is this definitely true? I use reasonable but not amazing component cables and using my Limit DVDA900SE they give superb results. Is it true that Panasonic don't bother to update and correct issues with uk/euro spec machines and rarely provide firmware updates? Is there any other model at a comparable price that has similar features? Basically what I want is; Good solid unit large capacity hard drive scart RGB input pal/ntsc progressive component output dvd recordable drive multiregion hackable or enabled without additional expense good performance all round.
