    Pj Dvd-p 5000

    I would recomment the PJ DVD-P 5000. I used to have problems with some discs but this player will play any dics in any format. And the very good thing: It was not very expensive.

    Just to add a small thing: Here is how to make it region free:

    In open door mode,
    1 Press ^ \/ < >
    2 Press 3 5 7 and then press OK
    3 Press the region code
    - then Region code will show on the screen.

    The software can be opgrated but I have not found any updates - and I have not needed one yet...

    region free????

    I have a PJ DVD-P 5000 but can't seem to get it region free... I tried to do as the instructions here said but it doesn't seem to work. the manual says that it is reion 2 only but a product sheet via PDF says you can change by remote... what gives?

    I hope not since the LG DF8900, the one I would recommend to this bloke, is not even on the list

    I bought the Digitrex GK-4000 off eBay. It's good, but doesn't cope very well with some XVID files. No matter, just run them through MPEG4 Modifier and you're set!

    Jamo DVD-P5000

    Hello,

    I own a Jamo DVD-P5000 DVD player and am experiencing random resets when watching different DVDs.

    I found a link to Jamo's site to a DVR 50 firmware upgrade that was referenced by a price comparator on the web.

    As I found absolutely no information on Jamo's site on my DVD player, I was wondering if there is a trick to flash this DVR 50 firmware on it ?

    Most likely a sign of impending failure unfortunately, you can't flash with alternate firmware, if you did you would kill your player, might be time for a new player, servicing your player would probably be a lot dearer than a similar replacement.
