    A guy I know had a firmware upgrade to make it region free.
    The question is, will this now convert PAL to NTSC??

    Thanks in advance.

    The region hack itself will not affect PAL possibiltiies - that must be an option in the Apex.

    The 500W (and I assume 500WM) will auto convert PAL --> NTSC in the player.

    However, I'm told it's similar to the Apex AD-600A, which does a pretty poor job of it.

    If you want PAL-->NTSC, everyone seems to swear by players like the Malata N996.
