For making it multi-region:

1. Power-On
2. Open tray
3. Ensure that you are not on 'TV mode' through source buttons
4. Using your remote enter '7, 7' followed by the region you require - for multi region enter '7 ,7, 0'

This is a good price for the 250GB model, however.....

I have recently sold my 160GB version after finding it very problematic.

Undoubtedly this is a very handsome player, but the beauty is only skin deep. The player suffered from many minor faults and niggles and the DivX playback was erratic at best.

EDIT: ]SVP go this model for £193.93

Buyers beware.

Good price for 250GB

Thanks Ray

Thanks for the post rayman, and thanks CJ for the extra info, shame, perhaps a firmware upgrade could have fixed the issues?

There is no "official" firmware upgrade for this Ellion model.

If you are thinking of spending £200 on a dvd recorder, consider one with a freeview tuner.
It makes recording so much easier. Plus the quality of digital over analogue.

Are there any useful unofficial firmware upgrades? I guess that would invalidate your warranty if within 1 year, but still, might be worth it to not have a buggy system.

That said I would go for one of the ones with a Freeview tuner built in, like the Panasonic, of course, that means more money, which I just don't have.

Maplin are doing a Yamada with DVD recording, 160Gb hard disk and freeview tuner for £219 delivered. With quidco, and the £15 voucher for Maplin, that comes down to a shade under £200.

Above that, the Sony or Pioneer machines come in at around £270 ish

I still reckon prices of DVD/HDD/freeview recorders have got a long way to fall.

If your looking for an alternative, one of the best is the one by Humax.

Assume the 9200t. That's a pvr not a dvd recorder.
