    I've been looking on BestBuy.com for the CyberHome 500 but all I can find is the 'CyberHome 402' (seen here). Is there any difference??

    I'm really after multi-region and PAL conversion, so it's vital I get the right one - thanks for any help!!

    John,

    Okay, the 402 does not convert PAL to NTSC very well at all. I have the 500 which is great, if you don't mind not using the progressive scan. I was asked if I wanted to ship mine back, for a new player.. which I am still considering, which has the progressive scan fix. I may just buy a new progressive scan and just use this play for my PAL DVDS. I love the 500 for what it can do (aside from the progressive scan problem).

    Try www.cyberhome.com for info on where to purchase the 500.

    Well, about 2 months ago, it was that cheap. Best Buy no longer carries it. You missed the boat!
