This is being marketed by Philips as a progressive scan player. I recently emailed them to ask when it was going to be available and whether it would be offering PAL progressive. They replied that it would be available in the UK towards the end of July and 'was a region 2 player only'. Should I infer from this that it will provide PAL ps or that it will need to be made multi region? No mention is made about ps being available for NTSC only. There has been some correspondence about the Asian 962SA available from HiViZone which does offer PAL ps. Does anyone know how this player is hacked? Finally, is the PAL ps on the 962 2:2 pulldown?
