Consider me corrected. Anyways, get an XBox 360 HD DVD drive and rip, play the file.

I'm going to have to seriously consider this in case the HD DVD player craps out again.

HD-DVD Rom drives were available in a number of formats including laptop sized internal drives, desktop sized internal drives, drives mounted in cases for usb connection and the already mentioned XBox 360 drive which connects to a computer via usb.
Poke around Ebay to see if something looks like it might suit your needs.

So... what's the skinny on region free and PAL for the A35? I see somebody selling discs on eBay to accomplish both of these things.

It will make the A35 PAL capable and regionfree for DVD. But it will not convert PAL to NTSC. It will output PAL as PAL and NTSC as NTSC. So you need to have a TV or a projector that can handle PAL.

Thanks. I searched around a bit and can't seem to find anywhere with the firmware(s) or instructions?

If you decide to try, you will use the EP35-dirty1.iso and EP35-dirty2.iso. Burn the iso files as images to 2 CDs. Same procedure for updating as the EP30. It is as they say a "dirty" way to flash the player, but it works. Upgrade the firmware to EP35 version 4.0 afterwards.


The procedure will essentially make your player into a region free HD-EP35 (the European version of the A35). A few region 1 DVDs have an additional coding called RCE. Use the RCE hack you find on the same site to bypass that.
