I am researching the DVP642, but am really confused. everywhere I look, it says it supports DVD-R/RW, but when I go to the Philips site, it says "DVD Rewritable Compatability Playback of the most compatible DVD recording format in the world, DVD+RW and DVD+R. "
I looked at the PDF spec sheet on the website, and it clearly says the model supports DVD-R/RW. But, I looked at the PDF owner's manual and it claims only the DVD+R/RW format is supported, and makes no reference to DVD-R. I called the Philips 1-800 support, and was told what is in the owners manual is ONLY what the player supports. Thus DVD+R/RW only.
Can anyone tell me if they have successfully used DVD-R/RW media in the Philips DVP642? Does it support DVD-R/RW as well, or only DVD+R/RW? Also, does it matter to the player what brand media is used (or is that only a concern for the burner/write?)?
