Hi dave, I have the same philips LX9000r system as u! Been having a few problems with mine. It won't play some of my DVD's but I didn't realise the thing is not mutli regional. Hope this is the reason. Last surround system I had went on the blink. Though this sytem had gone the same way. Let me know if ya find a solution. What do ya think about the bit of kit. I lov mine. Especially the opening mechanism. Cool or what cheers mate.
