Tried the above and it worked great.
Allmost a too good deal to be true. DivX works great and mp3 from dvd's as well.

Hi guys,
whar an exellent player this is!
I have a question to you.
Does your divx movies show "too" little for your tv screen? I mean when i feed the tv through my pc it fills the screen properly but through 737 it stays too small... Is it just a "feature" in this player?
----------------------------------------------------
Oh and it DOES play xvid and has a dts out, those were the questions that bothered me before buing.
:)

You need to upgrade the firmware for correct scaling.

The only lame (wich made me not buy it)
is the fact it lacks both optical
and s-video output.

I purchased the new Kendo DVX 9200 instead
Has everything 737 has but also comes with
separate RGB with progressive scan and optical and s-video
output.

I haven´t noticed any differencies between theese
2 players at all, same menys even and plays most files
i have tested.

Havn´t noticed any big differences in quality either...only that Philips looks much better...but good looks isn´t everything, huh?



PostOther hack posted by StyrIs, December 15 2003:


If you set it to 0 (as in all regions) or Bypass
you do not need to change it more than once.

Only problem i can imagine is that if an RCE disc
won´t play in bypass or 0 mode, you will have to change the region code to the same as the disc.

But i haven´t noticed this on any disc yet.
(Ofcourse i have not tried all my discs yet)

All the RCE titles I have play beautifully in "Region 0" mode. So you shouldn't have to worry about the 25 change limit.

I tried installing the new firmware (see above), but the combo: sys.menu,stop, <<, >> still only shows the old version 212B 2
Any clue as to what is going wrong?

Thanks!!

I CAN NOT PUT THE HACK TO WORK !!

I have a brand new Philips 737 tried the posted hack but it only apears :

ATAPI DVD-MODULE 212C
Ver.: DP 330.4.1.26 Reg 2

... and don´t let me change the region.. anyone help ?!



PostRegion code hack posted by DVD lover, March 28 2004:


I have the same version like Dcent
and fortunately the patch works as described above.
Player was bought yesterday at SATURN (Germany), set to zone 2.
Maybe the player wasn't switched on before?
Or you typed the cursor left key twice (like me first :-))
instead of track-back (the "|<<" button), Dcent?

Subtitles works!!!! Thanks Damijan.
Only without special characters (sumniki) About them read the report of Pali from Slovakia at almost the bottom of the following page ; http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdplayers.php? ... derby=Name
DVD player was bought in Media Markt in Graz, Austria, but is made in Hungary.

Dcent
Have you really opened the tray before you pushed "system menu" "stop" "<<" "0". If not, the region won't be changed. If you have done it, I suppose the new firmware maybe prevent you from changing the region :P

Im from slovenia to.
The first thing that comes to mind is. This player Sucks bad ass.

It lacks 5.1 output, S-video.
Subbtitles are little yellow crapy shit! Useless if I may add. Some parts of the font even cut the screen and you really cant read this yellow pice of ugly shit.

Apart of this its great and plays every movie I tried so far. To bad it doesnt play 3vix. Has anybody tried?
I dont have any movie in this format but hack I seen alot of them recently on suprnova.

There are for sure better Divx/Xvid/3vix players out ther. The trick is to find them. I just passed the oportunity on one where you could even change the image size like on a computer and plays even 3vix. ;(

When upgrading the dvd737 with a new firmware, you must after the boot with a cd-r/rw unplug the cord and replug it while holding play on the unit.
The new firmware wont beactivated until you do this.

Alrighty people!

A hack for all those pesky Xvid-rips that look like "mosaic"
This hack works for most of the Xvid's that aren't encoded using Qpel, GMC or B-VOP (those that don't play at all that is...)

Ok, now for the tip:
Just play the movie as usual, press the SYSTEM MENU button on your remote to get to the menu and press the the same button again to get out, and voila! It works :)
