    What a delight to find that my player is Macrovision disabled!

    I did a test with a region 2 disc and backed a short amount of movie onto my VCR. I used the yellow phono "video out" socket.

    Result:- Just a pure clean picture without any problems.

    What suprises me is that where I bought this player from, they said that their players were NOT macrovision disabled. Although I did speak to customer services and not the technical guys!

    Just goes to show that some people haven't got a clue what they are selling. The player is also multi region and RCE enabled. check out:
    WEB ELECTRICALS

    I was a bit concerned to begin with as I didn't know until I bought the player. I intend to buy a front projector in the future and have heard about problems with players that are NOT macrovision disabled connected to projectors.

    Rainfall,

    I'm getting a multiregion 510 delivered tomorrow from Sound and Vision in Bolton, £299. They still had some left when I was in the shop on Tuesday. Hope you can get one. Ask for George, top bloke!!

    Regards
    Dave

    I'm looking for the fabled SD-510E too - but I can't find any either and I've been all over.

    Apparently, the SD-520E is replacing it but again, I can't find anyone who has this model in stock... (Any other pointers?)

    As regards Macro Vision - is there any sort of disadvantage to having it removed from the player?

    Cheers,

    Chris
