As I've posted before I had to take my first Philips 75 back due to poor PQ. Well I've now taken the second one back as well, Pixel break up ect . So I decided to pay the extra and get a Panasonic HS2 multi region, only to find that when playing my daughters R1 Finding Nemo (no comments please JJ. ) I had lines across the screen from corner to corner. So I disconnected it from my Panny TV and tried it on my Hitachi plasma same thing happened. So that's gone back as well, I don't know if it's down to who ever does the multi region work for RS or something else but all three recorders have had problems. I'll leave it a few months and maybe try one of the new Panasonics.
