Budget Multi-region needed, with RCE compatibility too

Hi All,

My mate is after a new player, around the £50 mark, the main stipulations are that it needs to be multi-region friendly, and handle RCE encoded discs without any problem.

The ability to play VCD isn't so overly important I don't think - any ideas about what he should look at? I tried doing a search, there were lots of recommendations, but nothing mentioned RCE and I guess that's one of the most important things for them

Thanks

I would plump for the Yakumo at Amazon.

Read all about it in this thread, in particular my report for the one I tested before giving it to the in-laws...

Pretty light on connections round the back, but it does everything you need it to for £35...RGB SCART out and DD/DTS Coax out, and will play anything you chuck at it, including raw mpegs (non-standard bitrates + resolutions),vobs, kvcds etc. on CD-R/RW & DVD-R/RW without the need to re-encode to VCD/SVCD/MPEG-2 (DVD) compliant formats...

Multi-Region out of the box, and RCE compliant too IIRC.
