Multimedia, AV Helios Labs was very kind in sending me their H2000 upscaling multi-function DVD player, which is region free. The device playbacks just about anything you can throw at it, and can upscale standard definition content to high definition - functionality you really want when you have a high-definition ready television.

AV equipment translations

About the translation to Dutch: Some native English speakers may not be aware of this, but the language in localized versions of AV equipment is often horrendous. Both in the manuals and on screen menus / info. This is true even for some high-end equipment. There are _lots_ of times that I've laughed out loud at some translations, and I believe there are even websites dedicated to collecting funny translations.

I set all my devices to use English because I'm fed up with horrible translations to Swedish. (And English looks cleaner too, without the "a and o with dots on" crap. ;-))
