Hi, I want to get a new DVD player but I really want it to have certain capabilities. I guess I have been spoiled by the unexpected versatility of my Malata N996. I initially got the Malata just for being region free and being able to do PAL to NTSC. However I have discovered so many cool features on it. I want a DVD player that can zoom in slowly. on 3 zoom settings like X2, X4 and X8 or something. But most importantly I want to be able to ZOOM OUT! I love this feature to help compensate for any overscan. I also want to be able to PAN. Again on the Malata I can Zoom-out to compensate for overscan but I can also pan left or right as sometimes there is more overscan on left or right so I can really move the image around. I also want a player with enough "buffer" I guess to avoid that pause during layer switches. DVD players have been around over 7-8 years now, this should be mandatory on ALL of them. Now if can be region free and to PAL to NTSC that would be bonus but worse case scenarion the Malata will still do. Actually if I get a new region free player I would like one with pitch control to be able to compensate for PAL speed up. does such a player exist? obviously ability to play VCDs, SVCDs and DVD-Rs is a must as well. Suggestions please!
