    also how would i go about getting 5.1 from it and is it multi region out of the box or is that a benefit to getting it modded? ( to play games and dvd's?)

    okay let's see what i can do:

    modchips.

    There are various different solderless chips available. a table of the difference between the modchips that matter can be found here:

    The xecutor chips are well regarded - i have the 2.2lite in mine. So id say an xecutor 2.2lite or 2.3lite with pogopin addon would be a great choice.


    Divx

    nope, you dont need the remote. When chipped, you dont need the remote to play dvd's either if you get the right software. To be honest though, the remote is a fine addon and works very well with Xbox Media Player (the software you use to play mp3's, divx ect)


    5.1

    You need to buy another a/v lead for the xbox. Which one you buy depends on what connection you want for the T.V. ie: component, s-vdeo, rgb ect.


    Multi region

    No, not out of the box. It is with the modchip but once again you need to get the right software.

    As James has said, the xecuter chips are generally regarded as the ones to get. I have the 2.3lite+ which is the solderless version.
