    Just wanted to congratulate you on your purchase, though I can't answer your original question. I also got my Malata late last week and have been playing with it all weekend.

    My main reason for buying is to be able to play R2 DVDs.

    I second Mark's recommendation. I've ordered from both and have had no problems. They are also the least expensive.

    Good Luck,

    I just got the Malata N996 and love it. The picture is fabulous and the ability to eliminate overscan is priceless. The PAL anamorphic coversion works great.

    Is there a master list somewhere of movies only available in other regions than R1 (or in better editions in another region)?

    Check out this site:
    http://www.dvdcompare.org.uk/
    You can check their database for regional comparisons by title, or you can even pull up the spreadsheet version comparing about a thousand titles based on features, anamorphic transfers, etc. You can even download the file and open it in Excel. Very helpful indeed.
    One main reason I had for getting the Malata N996 was to get anamorphic versions of non-enhanced region 1 titles (e.g., Bound, Stargate). But I discovered that the Malata does a good job of scaling non-anamorphic widescreen DVDs that this has become a minor concern to me. Now I mainly go after titles that are not available in region 1 in whatever form, and the latest titles to fit this category are Kieslowski's Color Trilogy (Red, White, Blue). I should get them soon. I can hardly wait.
    And then there's also The Last Seduction. Yeah!
