    I've read great reviews about both these multi-region DVD players.

    Can anyone advice which is the best bet?

    The quality of the MP3 playback and its ability to handle VCD is important to me.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Blenky

    Avoid the Pioneer 350 if you have a Sony TV.

    When using RGB on outdoor or bright scenes you get these annoying lines...

    I miss the quality of RGB so much I am thinking of another DVD player.

    I had 3 Tosh 220e before the Pioneer, but all 3 kept on sticking during layer changes....

    Regards

    Paul

    Those annoying lines are a fault in the TV's firmware, not the DVD player.

    Hi MilesbennettDyson

    Fair enough. I had assumed it was the DVD player :blush:

    I just find it bloody annoying, so there is something wrong with the way the Sony does RGB - is that what you are saying?

    How comes I didn't have these lines with the Tosh 220e then?

    These lines have really annoyed me, so I just switch off RGB and it's OK. Otherwise I can not fault the TV, it really is a cracker. (KV32LS60)

    Regards

    It's normally NTSC in RGB that's the problem. I was one of the first to spot this on Sony TV's a few years back. I'm shocked it's still happening because once it got out, a patch was released and I assumed newer TV's came with it as standard!

    Thansk - I got the Pioneer in the end - great machine for the price.

    £110 for the black version at Amazon.co.uk
