Awesome DVD Player...

Hey all...

I am cinsidering upgrading My Toshiba 4700 (nice player, but has chroma bug and mp3 playback bug) to a Panasonic DVD-RP82. I was also considering a region free/code free/NTSC<>PAL player. And then.... I came across this MONSTER:

since i cant post the long link here, just go to Amazon.com and search for "Panasonic DVD-RP82 Code Free Player with macro-off"

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Matt

...you mean this here thingy...?... better description here...
...and here...

...a player that seems to want to be all things to all people...

...I see it has built-in DD 5.1 and DTS decoders (superfluous IMNSHO) ... I don't see any mention of this player being 'code-free' or that it is able to convert PAL to NTSC, or that it bypasses Macrovision... yes...?... no...?...

. . . . . .

Hello..

No, that one is the regular edition. Someone seems to have altered a bunch and is selling them. Search amazon.com for the following phrase:

"Panasonic DVD-RP82 Code Free Player with macro-off"

You get hits under the Z-Shops section, then you will see what i mean.... I would post the direct link, but dvdtalk trunkates it...

Thanks,

matt

Get a multi-region JVC, then your problems will be over. If you search you'll see that there is no threads about problems with JVCs.
