    Wow. Word spread like wildfire about this baby and it's scaling features, PAL to NTSC conversion, top notch performance, etc. etc. Now there are so many orders, avdeals.com has lowered the price by $50 for both models, as they can now go for much more volume.
    The bad side of this is they are out of stock and players will be delayed a bit. Just a couple days, from what they have said, so no big deal, but damn! Wish I had heard about it a week sooner.
    Mine won't be shipped until at least tomorrow and I must admit that I am going nuts just thinking about it. [​IMG]

    Haven't been around in a while. Is it a good player? I am looking into prog. scan to upgrade.

    In a word, yes. The remote is cheesy, but this is the second player from Asia that has passed the tests given it by its early buyers. The first was the SKYWORTH, but this is actually getting higher marks.
    It has the XY scaling features of the latest 480p Panasonic, so that alone maks it an amazing player.

    Matt,
    It seems we are feeding each other's addictions. Now I'm seriously considering this player for my region free needs. [​IMG]

    I spent about 30 minutes with the Panny tonight (see my post in a current thread in TV area) and I am even more excited about this set. If my player arrives tomorrow, which it should, I will get to play with it a full week before the TYV rrives, allowing me to go full bore on it. [​IMG]

    Well I'm looking forward to getting mine. I believe it will be here early next week, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Does anybody know if discreet codes for the remote have been found yet? I haven't seen anything about this on RemoteCentral.com yet. Or does the remote have discreets already?

    Matt,
    The DVD player looks interesting. Anybody know if this player is VCR friendly? They offer two options, one with region code default of 0 and one with region code default of 1. What is the difference besides $50?
    Thanks

    Carolyn, the region 0 can handle any region coded disc that doesn't use RCE without any trouble, whereas the region 1 player requires you to press a few buttons whenever you want to use a different region disc. Both will play any disc, with or without RCE, its just a matter of the more expensive one easing the process for you.

    Hey guys,
    This could very well become the new player in the Palace, but since most of the same people posting questions in other threads have posted in this one, and Mr. Malata himself, Matt_Stevens orginated this thread...I'll ask my question here...
    Will this DVD Player hand DVD-Audio discs now or should I wait a bit on a future edition? Also, now that I'm thinking about it, say I decide to do the squeeze trick via the DVD player on my 4:3 Display....can I store that setting for 16:9 discs and also be able to quickly go back to non-enhanced discs or will it have to be manually set everytime I want to watch an anamorphic disc?
    ------------------
    Regards,
    Paul

    I'm trying to figure that out too. There's a few other threads so keep an eye out for those. My region 1 that I just received has some capability for DVD-Audio, at least it can display info on the DVD-Audio discs, whether or not it plays them.
    Could someone with a player that is a few weeks old tell me if option 7 when you press Display is for DVD-Audio? I have this option and I'm wondering what it means.
