I was wondering what is the point of a company that tries to dissuade us from region unlocking a DVD player from producing a region 2 player that only does NTSC progressive scan. I have a Pioneer 939-a fixed to region 2. Pioneer made a point of pushing the progressive scan feature but did not state that it does not work on PAL disks. The 939-a is not a remote hackable unit and as such any modifications would invalidate the warranty. I asked the Pioneer reps at the Bristol show about this and they didn't know a thing about progressive scan or region encoding (Great reps). I then asked Pioneer on the web and the only response I had was that my enquiry would be dealt with in 24hrs. (Nothing after that.) There are many players for sale that only do NTSC progressive so what is the point in producing a player that is region fixed?
