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.
