Hey Chris, have you had a chance to try out the Sampo yet? If so, how has it been working?

No complaints yet!

The next thing on my "to-do" list is post my collection of DVDs, I swear.

*lol* Sounds good! Hey, what all have you done with your player so far? I'm looking at gettiing one very shortly myself, (in fact, I have two Region 2 ECW DVDs on the way) and I'd like to know how your 611 has been responding to different things.

Have you tried running the CDR region hack yet?

Have you tried any non-Region 1 discs yet?

Have you tried any PAL discs yet?

And lastly, have you tried any long movies yet? There are some reports on area450.com that some players have had problems with jittering play after 1:00:00 or 1:15:00 into the movie, due to a faulty laser or overheating.

Thanks!

P.S. You or Guru can feel free to delete the FTWTaz13 nickname if you'd like. I've been using it for a while now on various boards, and I'm kinda sick of looking at it.

I'll do my best...keep in mind mine was...umm..."altered" professionally before I bought it, so I don't know if my answers will actually be helpful...

Have you tried running the CDR region hack yet?

No, and I probably won't so long as everything plays. The only thing I haven't tried yet (as far as I'm aware) are those Wacky Region 1 ones that aren't supposed to run in region-free players. I don't BELIEVE I own any of those yet. (It's also possible I *do* own them, they run perfectly, and I'm blissfully unaware as well.)

Have you tried any non-Region 1 discs yet?

In fact my first disc was a Region 2. Runs fine.

Have you tried any PAL discs yet?

Converts to NTSC fine.

And lastly, have you tried any long movies yet? There are some reports on area450.com that some players have had problems with jittering play after 1:00:00 or 1:15:00 into the movie, due to a faulty laser or overheating.

I've only watched one DVD from beginning to end thus far, (a Dr. Who one) but had no problems with it.

Thanks!

We aim to please!

I'll put it on the todo list. ;-)

Altered professionally? In what way? I mean, whaddya need to do to that thing that isn't available out of the box, aside from perhaps the region-mod?

It's got the non-approved BIOS or whatever hack that does the region free and the VCR friendly set-up I believe. It's a little more complex than just burning the CDR and playing it back, I think.

Hell, I didn't really research it that much. It played region 2 and region 1 discs, which was all we were going for, and I didn't want to give him my Apex so we went with this one.



I love it when a plan comes together

Oh, the unofficial firmware? I see. But you had it done professionally? Hope you didn't get worked too bad on the price...
