    Hi,
    anyone has any idea when it will be on the market?
    The dealers I spoke with don't have a clue. But maybe someone in the forum knows more than them (as always :laugh: )

    Thanks in advance

    My DVP900SA should arrive in the shop tomorrow but I can get a 5% discount if I buy it on Dec 1st.
    I've heard that for the UK they will become available sometime in January.

    Just thought I'd post a picture of it ;)

    Philips DVP900SA

    I think it looks great :thumbsup:

    As you can see, it's a Cineos product. Philips "Matchline" products, which are their top products, are from now on called "Cineos" products.

    I am also interested in the player,have received an e-mail from dutch west who say that the player will be available in 1 to 2 months time in the U.K ,having read the manual it does seem a very impressive player.

    Well, I ordered mine back in November. First it was going to arrive on December 1, then in Januari, now it's end of Februari. I've been waiting for it too long, so I've changed my mind and ordered the Panasonic DVD-S97 which has the Faroudja FLI2310 chip. I think the Philips DVP900SA will have the same Faroudja chip.

    Sorry Philips... my patience has a limit...

    Apologies - just checked the Netherlands Philips website, and it confirms it is HDMI. Does anyone know the likely UK price ?? :)

    Will this player ever come out? I ordered one yesterday after sitting on the fence about it since last year. German etailer had it marked as shipping in 48 hours so I decided to order it. Now I check the stock status on their site and it gives sometime in April. That's pretty a underhanded way of taking my money and then saying "Oh, hang on a sec." Sure I can cancel the order but to let me order and then hours later to change the stock status. :mad:

    Is it a case of they've run out of stock or this player has yet to ship to any retailers?

    EDIT: Question to Aquila; are you seeing any macroblocking with your Panasonic player? Does it do auto NTSC/PAL selection also? Thanks.

    i've been looking at this player, the only google search result for uk places with it listing on there website informed me they are awaiting info from suppliers as to when it will be released.

    Also looking at the 963sa as well

    I'm very pleased with my Panasonic S97! The picture is great! I've got firmware version 540 now and I'm seeing very little to no macroblocking at all :thumbsup:
    I've got my S97 multiregioned at the shop. Apparently you can do it with a specific remote control, I don't know exactly which one. Some people on the forum here have done it.

    Just out of curiosity I've informed at my Philips personnel shop about the 900SA and they're also saying April... I'm glad I went for the Panasonic :D
    I'd look elsewhere if I were you, unless you can wait of course... :boring:

    If April, then it ain't that long off - had current player for nearly 6yrs, so a few more weeks wait won't hurt :)

    So it's April now, did this player _ever_ materialise?

    If not, it's really beginning to sound like _the_ vapourware of the new millenium. And I'm afraid when/if it'll finally be released, there'll be other better choices. When it was due last summer, it'd been great.
