DVD Players or Mods for Macrovision Free play

There is no section anymore for DVD players so I just posted here instead. Mods please move to appropriate section if needed.

Anyway I am looking for a DVD player model that is Macrovision free such as the Apex AD-800A or any mods that are still sold that will make a DVD player macrovision free.

Anyone have any info?

I have to ask... why do you want Macrovision disabled? What are you trying to do? I think once we know that, we'll be better able to point you in the proper direction that may even be unrelated to what you're actually looking for.

But if you're still dead set on removing Macrovision, try this RF Modulator...

I am using an IC that is not macrovision compatible at 480i.

And to clarify I am looking for a DVD player that is macrovision free at the component output or rgb output, so not looking for any kind of RF modulator solution.

Update:

I got my hands on an Apex AD-800A and it looks like the RGB output is only 480p and the 480i component output still ha macrovision enabled.

Any other suggestions or maybe any known mods to make the RGB output port display in 480i?
