    I need a DVD player with a child lock to prevent my kids from trashing the disk tray. The only decent player I can find with this feature are the Sony machines. Therefore I've got a choice between the 305 and 405 - which one should I buy?

    I have the 405 and it seems an excellent machine - it's only about £20 more than the 305 [and you may get a better deal than that from some online retailers]. Both (as far as I can tell from limited opinions) are good players - but the 405 offers more connection options (s-video as well as Scart plus optical as well as coaxial digital audio). Also it has "digital video enhancer" to tweak the picture, if you want to. And - with more direct relevance to your question - it also has an easier method of entering parental control passwords compared to the 305.

    Thanks for the advice. Where's the best place to get a MR version of the 405 - a lot of sites seem to show out of stock for this?

    I'm afraid I don't know - I got my machine (region 2 only) from my local Sony dealer, on a special offer, as I bought it with my TV.

    Best idea is to put a new question on this forum - there are plenty of folk with advice on multiregion.
