    I am comming up on getting a Denon 2900 shortly. But right after I buy the 2900 as my main dvd player, I would like to get a Denon 1600 and send it to a shop where I can have it modified for All Regions.

    Does anyone know of a reliable place they can suggest?

    There is no place I know of in the continental US. There are a few places in England that will do it, but especially since the Denon will not convert PAL to NTSC it's really a waste of your time and money (the mod will EASILY cost $150-200 after shipping to the UK)

    Yeah, I did some seaches online and found a few websites where you have to order the 1600 from them. They all have codefree 1600's that also convert PAL. $649 tho? Ouch! Maybe not such a good idea afterall. [​IMG]

    I spied on your profile and noticed you have an XBR that has a DVI connection. This means you have one and only one choice. The Momitsu 880.

    It's $299. There's an online store that sells it, but I got it straight from their US office (i.e., one guy). It's the only known DVI player that does PAL conversion and is all-region. Once you've gone DVI, there's no going back! [​IMG]

    It's a cheapo player, but DVI will blow away any $1000 player and rivals HTPCs.

    Call the Dearborn Michigan office of JVB Digital. They might be able to help you. I bought my JVC multi-regional player from them. Very nice people.

    Hey Rich, With the Momitsu, are there different modes for the progressive? FILM, VIDEO, SMART, etc.... I currently own a JVC modified p. scan player and it has some flagging issues with the R1 Buffy sets.

    Thanx! D
