    PS Needs to be black just to complicate things

    From what Ican gather reading the threads and talking to sales reps...

    Some multi-region software seemed to be more flawed than others, just do a search for 2900 in here for example, for example

    Im about to demo a 2900 and arcam next saturday from sevenoaks.

    They may not be as cheap as avland and others but if it does prove to be problematic, then hopeully it will be easier to resolve the issue.....

    Yes, sevenoaks is about £100 more expensive than avland, but my store is a 5 minute drive if there are problems.

    Has anyone encountered problems with AVlands multi-region software on the denon 2200 or 2900?

    From my experince sevenoaks rarely give discount on hardware, but if you buy cables etc.. then they charge next to nothing if you haggle and negoiate!

    I brought my 2900 from my local sevenoaks.......took it back thow because of a few probs.
    If you get it with barclaycard, then you can claim the diff back (thats what i done...about £160...compared it to NexNix).
    I was hopping to get my 2200 from them, so i could take it back, if there was any probs, but they have no stock and they have no idea when they will be getting any.
    So looks like i will be doing the same as grahammackie and placeing my order tommorrow.

    Just go into 7oaks, don't waste any of their time ask if they'll match whatever price, pay in cash up front they'll probably do it if they're having a bad day! ;-)
    They love selling cables so they'll definite do deals on that!
    From what I know 7oaks only use multi mods from Hayden Labs(Denon UK), i.e. doesn't invalidate warranty!!! Worth it IMHO.

    Do a search on the 2900 and you will find all the probs that i had, plus some probs that other people have had.

    But the warranty will work, as long as it is a R2 prob and no other.......If you get probs with any other region, then they will not want to know....as i found out with my 2900.

    mine arrived today....plugged it in and the pic compared to the pio 656 is brill....just the same as i remember the 2900 to be......have not had a chance to try the audio (SACD, DVD-A, CD) side of things yet.
    I then tried CEOTTK R4....on the 2900 it was OK up untill the second half...where they get caught trying to get to devils tower...the 2900 started freezing at this point and when they start getting interigated, the 2900 just froze for about 2 mins and then refused to play........the 2200 would not play any of it...evern right at the begining the DTS logo freezes for about 30 seconds before playing another second and then freezing again for another 30 seconds.
    Have not tried any Disney titles yet, so will try tommorrow.
    Think i will have to order a new copy of CEOTTK and see what happens (maybe a region 1 copy).

    So the 2200 deffenertly has a diff firmware than the 2900.....the 2900 got atleast half way through the film before it started freezing...the 2200 was a non starter.

    Chris - do you not think it might be the disc that is at fault - Road to Perdtion DTS R1 would not play on my pioneer 656 - I didn't think for a moment that the player was to blame

    I do hope so, as i dont wanner send it back.....i have ordered a R1 copy, so will see what happens.
    This was one of the probs why i took the 2900 back...plus Haydens attitude towards it.
