    Have asked in another Forum but got no repy so probably was wrong forum.

    I'm considering one of the above, shops tell me they are Multi Region are they?

    If not can I make it so?

    Best price I've seen for 700 is £180 and £235 for the 800, can these be beaten?

    I assume only difference is screen size, 7"/8".

    hi

    sorry can help much with your info needed, but think these can be made multi region using the remote, some shops online are selling as multi region and most are not. so guessing they just change beforehand using remote.

    also out of interest where did you see the pet800 for 235.00 looking to buy pet700 or 800 myself.

    I have a Philips PET 700 and I made it multi-region. It was not multi-region out of the box. It is done with a hack that you introduce with the remote control, and it works. I got it for free in some website. Sorry but I don't remember where. I think I searched in Google.

    Does the Pet700 play DVD-R? Web site info seems to contradict one another???

    I am thinking about getting one of these to keep the children quiet for a long distance trip. (Apparently cutting out their vocal chords is frowned upon these days...)

    What is the width of vision for these? If I get one and hang it inbetween the two seats, will I have happy children or not?

    Ta in advance, Rich.

    Looking for the same answer... I would assume it does all the usual formats DVD-R DVD-RW DVD+R DVD+RW even though it does not say it does?

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Thanks

    Would appreciate some help and advice here.

    I have the PET700, bought in December.

    I've got the code, but it doesn't work....when I get to press down arrow, I don't get the option to change the regional code.

    I started to think mine might be from a new batch of unhackable ones or something.
