I bought my parents one of these players from Amazon for Christmas. It had been modded for multi-region. As they only had one DVD (and I forgot to take some with me), I was only able to give it a proper test a few days ago. It quite often takes several attempts to get it to recognise and load up a disc (especially one it hasn't played before), and region 1 playback (on the one disc I had to try) was very stuttery. I can't return it to Amazon because my parents have thrown away the box (despite me expressly telling them not to), so it looks like they're stuck with it. Has anyone else experienced problems like this is with this players and is there anything I can do to fix it?
