    it's OK I have found that it is multi region anyway
    I have found a 757ai for £350 , it is progressive scan pal and NTSC and about six months old , do you think it is a reasonable buy

    Just got mine yesterday from Sound and Vision played a few discs on it last night and I must say i'm very impressed with the pal and ntsc progressive scan PQ.

    Tried an RCE title a region 3 disc and it played them no problem.

    Yes I did get it from S and V I was a bit worried at first as on their website it states regions 1 and 2 only and doesn't say if it will play RCE discs and doesn't say anything about PAL progressive scan.

    Was happy when I opened it to see a large sticker on the front of the player saying PAL progressive scan.

    Tried a couple of RCE discs and a region 3 disc and no problems so far.

    Matt

    Sorry to hear about yours not being multi-region.

    Did yours have a sticker on the box saying multiregion as mine did.

    Have you spoken to S and V yet and what are they going to do about it.

    Hope everything works out OK.

    The player didn't have a multi-region sticker on it, even though I specifically said on my order comment box that I only wanted the player if it was multi region and PAL progressive:( I'll phone S+V tomorrow :mad:

    Hi Matt,
    You must contact Sound and Vision, I am sure they will sort this out. I have bought lots of kit from them, fortunately they are a local dealer.
    Tonight, has been one of the few nights I have been able to check this player out with my PW6, it's the dog's bits', fantastic lustre to the Fifth Element.
    On my next day off I am going to have a film fest.

    How does this dvd player compare to say the 668 and the Denon 2910? I'm looking for a new player but am stuck for what to buy at the moment. I can get a 2910 for very similar money to the 757 at S&V. Can it do any scaling i.e output 720p etc?
