Hi, I need a new DVD player and the Pioneer 585A seems to me the best bet in its price range (assuming it's an improvement on the 575A). It's not released for several weeks in the UK, but you can buy a European model from pixmania right now. I spoke to Pioneer, who said that the machine would probably be identical, with maybe some different connections and also a different power supply. PSU is not a problem obviously, and it claims to have component connectors, which is what I'll need. Is it therefore safe to assume that I will get the same product from Pixmania as I would do from a UK retailer? Also, the pixmania model is not multiregion. AVLand say theirs will be made multiregion using a remote hack. I've had a look round the net, and remote hacks seem to be extremely complicated process using Palm OS PDAs or modified PC motherboards. I have neither. The only other option seems to be using modded firmware. Does anybody have any views on the reliability of this (or alternative methods for freeing the set from region coding)? Thanks in advance for any help!
