http://www.dvdtalk.com/rce.html Some people were asking me why I needed a receiver with 2 component video ins for 2 DVD players. The answer is above. I bought a codefree DVD player right before some companies decided to do this. Apparently, it is to prevent people like me ,who travel and enjoy watching international movies, from watching any kind of movie I like. I will try the workarounds again and see what I can get.
