Sound is Good but DVD Player has issues


In regards to the "Play Prohibited" message, if you backup your DVD's using CloneDVD or Nero Recode, it should play in this dvd player. However, if you use DVD Decryptor or ImageBurn for backups, they will not play after the firmware upgrade.

Sound quality is good for the price. DVD Player is a multi-format player meaning it plays both NTSC and PAL formatted discs

Theres better

Good sound ; HDMI

Odd humming noise when turned off ; Price

where do I start? when watching dvds or divx/xvids the screen randomly goes blank, sometimes for only a second or 2, others for minutes on end. the only way to get the picture back when it goes for a long time is to turn it off and back on. then you...
