I 'm editing my review , because now i wish i read the manual before returning the player i bought for my girlfriend .
The button on the remote to switch from pal to ntsc was undoubtedly my problem .
Now i may buy two !
( my orignal review is below : )
Great feature list , poor reliability .
Output went black and white only via both s-video and composite connections , and with no v-hold .
Thankfully amazon has free return shipping !
