That Phillips player ended up being pretty bad. The remote went out in a few days. I got a replacement in about 10 days, the service was good.
The remote doesn’t work well even in line of sight. It has to be at an angle in order for it to get the signal.
It’s nearly impossible to move chapters in a DVD. I always have to use a fast rewind. I have tried this a few inches away from the unit to eliminate the remote not being in the right position.
The player opens up so slowly. There is about a 15 second delay from when it starts ejecting before it actually ejects. The same goes for powering it on.
The upconvert option was less than impressive as well.
Maybe I got a lemon? I am definitely going to get something else. Are there other recommendations that people have? Money is not really an object (DVD players won’t be over 175, I don’t think, if so, then money is an object)?
Is there a DVD player that can adjust the volume for just to vocals, if they have a multiple vocal tracks (ie, French, Spanish, ect)?
My hearing sucks so it would be nice to have some better volume options. I may try a pioneer. I’m definitely not going to throw out the box again. Perhaps I can sell it on CraigsList for a loss
