How's the layer change on SD DVD's?
I have to add that I'm from Germany and bought this player locally. PAL support was a no-brainer, I would have been very surprised if it was not playing PAL discs (in this case I would have sent the unit back
). NTSC supported as well, as long as the disc has no region.
I'd guess that all the Onkyos sold worldwide do support PAL DVDs (non-region coded). I would bet the Onkyo has more in common with the HD-XE1 than XA2 (PAL support).
Forgive me, although I noticed several inquiries in this thread for how DVD layer change is handled, I did not test it yet. I hope to find the time to try it sometimes this week.
