    I have a R2 Pioneer DV747A and want to get it modified.

    I've seen mention of PAL progressive (Techtronics will do this) but the upgrade is costly and Techtronics are frowned upon for customer service etc.

    Anyway, I wouldn't be able to take advantage of any progressive yet but its nice to have the feature (future proof)

    Does anyone else have any recommendations as to where I can get the player modified?

    I would hopefully want RCE support and macrovision off (which some companies don't appear to offer)

    Techtronice do have a bad customer service reputation...but i bought from them, What i suggest is take the player to them on a saturday..go shopping in peterborough for a few hours then go back and collect it...Its what i did when i wanted mine upgaraded...

    Yeah good idea, then drive all the way home only to find the player dont work, then try and phone them up for them to say, "well it worked when we had it." Dont do it, slap yourself across the face and ask yourself what the hell you were thinking of for letting Techtronics even enter your head.
