Somebody on another site pointed me to the Pioneer DV-533K aka DV-5310KD (with region free) Reports are: Codefree and RCE compatible Slimline (5.5 cm thick) with nice gold colour Progressive scan (Can't confirm this this, and dunno about scaling) Component out. PAL NTSC conversion Better remote than Malata Dual laser pickup (with DVD/SVCD/VCD/CD/CD-R/CD-RW) MP3 support. Coaxial digital and optical digital out. (DD/DTS/MPEG/PCM) 192kHz/24-bit DAC I'd like to get confirmation that it has true PAL --> NTSC conversion, and hope that it is a scalable progressive scan and supports RCE. If so, it may be a better option than the Malata. ------------------ Eugene Hsieh, VisorCentral FAQ Editor 1000 km on a tank of gas??? Check out the Prius and drive the future now!
