Smart looking DVD player that plays everything,
This review is from: Philips DVP3980/05 - DVD Player with True High-Def HDMI 1080p (Electronics)
This is the 3rd Philips DVD player I have owned over the years, and I am very happy with this recent purchase.
Firstly, it is a very compact and light unit that makes it easy to transport between rooms or just put away if you dont want your kids watching too many films during the week.
Secondly, it loads up quickly and plays everything from DVD, DivX, XVid and VCD, smoothly and quietly. This was not the case with my previous player, a Philips DVP5960, which was a noisy beast that often froze when loading or while playing many of my home-made DVD-video and DivX discs.
Thirdly, it is very nice on the eye.
I have tried out several DivX movies and so far no problems. The remote control also seems to be better on this unit than on the DVP5960.
This player can be made multi-region by some easy steps.
1. Turn the DVD player on.
2. Open the loading tray.
3. Press the "Setup" button on the remote control.
4. Navigate to the "Preferences" page using the right arrow key.
5. Type 138931.
6. The current region code will be displayed - use the Up/Down arrow buttons to select the region required or "0" for all regions.
7. Press the "Setup" button on the remote control.
8. Press "OK" on the remote control.
At £45 this is a bargain.

I wasn't able to get the code to work. When you say that the current region is displayed - where is it displayed?

Again, please could one reviewer, one day, please please please answer whether it plays HI DEF xvids as well as normally encoded xvids (the latter should be no problem as almost all divx players can play normally encoded xvids - but HIGH DEF encoded xvids - is a different story altogether!)
