I know alot of you purchased an HD-dvd player when the prices dropped to silly prices. The player also makes an awesome upscaling dvd player, but annoyingly is locked to region 2. Both players can now be updated with firmware to become region free. All the help you need is over at the AVForums in the HD-DVD section.
Just in case anybody is interested.
PS - Yes I know that HD-DVD is a dead format and Blu-Ray won blah blah blah.
