Sound is Good but DVD Player has issues

 

In regards to the "Play Prohibited" message, if you backup your DVD's using CloneDVD or Nero Recode, it should play in this dvd player. However, if you use DVD Decryptor or ImageBurn for backups, they will not play after the firmware upgrade.

Sound quality is good for the price. DVD Player is a multi-format player meaning it plays both NTSC and PAL formatted discs

DVD player is horrible. I have it connected via HDMI. Video goes blank while audio is still present during movies movies. Happends with all types of media that I have used. You will need to turn the system off and turn it back on to get the picture...

Good sound ; HDMI
