Unbelievalbe picture quality like all other reviewers are saying. Changing the player to Region 0 (all region) is easy: 1. Press Setup on remote control to access the setup page, 2.Enter 9210 on the remote 3.A service menu will pop up, 4. Select a region: 0- 6 in region code. 0 is all-region. Press Setup on remote again to exit. It should play all region and PAL discs. Hope that helps.
(added 12/18/07) I've been using this player for a year now and I still LOVE it. My friend gave me a DVD with several movies in AVI and an XVid formats. Typically, I would have to watch these movies on my PC. I was pretty psyched to find that Oppo will play the files. When I popped in the disc, I see a blue menu with all the files. The player decodes each selected file and it had no problem playing 3 out of the 4 AVI files. For some reason, one of the AVI files won't play. The XVid file played fine. The quality of these compressed AVI files, as you can imagine, isn't great. But...
This is one nice DVD player. I know it is old and not available any longer but OPPO products are really cool. Unlike the big boy major manufacturers this is easy to make region free. I got and kept this so the better half could watch those DVD's that she gets from Amazon UK. I had to return it because something burned out in it and OPPO charges a flat fee to repair and return their products along with an apology for it failing. Tell me which of the big manufacturers will do that for you. Great picture quality and great company to deal with.
Almost everything about the Oppo DV-981HD exceeds expectations. From the attention to detail in the packaging, to the unexpected features on the remote (volume control, zoom out as well as zoom in, etc.) to the friendly and helpful customer support at Oppo, I've been happy with every aspect of this product and the company behind it.
The most important thing for me, though, is that I've finally found a DVD player that will do true PAL conversion for an NTSC TV. My previous Toshiba DVD player played everything I put in it, but it was a cheap unit and PAL playback suffered from occasional dropped frames. Once I read the Oppo manual carefully and got the settings configured correctly, this unit plays PAL discs as crisply and smoothly as NTSC. What a treat.
Even on a 40" LCD TV, the difference between this unit's 720p output and my old player's 480p output is outstanding. The best areas of comparison are fine detail, such as venetian blinds or wicker furniture, and...
