Tee hee! I got lucky... and smart. I had an opportunity to buy one of the
original Apex models, the one with the "secret" menu, while they were still
the shelves... and ran out and bought one the next day, figuring it wouldn't
last. Within a month, they'd all been yanked from the shelves...
I also managed to fix it recently, the drive died, but based on other
info on the 'net, I obtained a suitable replacement.
I have other Region-free links, too, if anybody want's 'em. Contact me
If you can get component video out, and don't have a TV to display it on...
get one. Mine's a JVC D-series 27", nice model, not fancy but it does have
component video. The quality difference is WELL worth it. IMHO.
Paranoids have enemies, too.
