    Default Apex DVD player £69.99

    Just been into Asda (Oadby, Leicester) and bought the gf one of these. Looks like it is a nationwide thing by the number of these they had. Anyway, it does MP3, displays JPEGs and of course DVD's (region 2 only), no vcd's though

    Heres the link to the website [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Anyway, for the price I rekon this is quite a nice machine, enjoy

    Had mine 2 weeks or so. Firmware's a doddle to upgrade and makes it region free, vcr friendly (you can tape dvd's to vhs video) vcd compatible and also plays RCE discs.

    Get the odd dodgy film that stutters every now and then but for the money its a bargain.

    Just got my upgrade disc today. Tried a dvd film and still says 'wrong region'. Anyone else had this after upgrading or are there more than 1 upgrade disc from Asda?

    i don't think the Asda firmware gets rid of macro or makes it region free, m8


    try here: https://www.nerd-out.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=31

    and here: https://www.sektor3.co.uk/mirror/


    their firmware works a treat: region free, VCD 1 and 2 complaint, SVCD (apparently) and region and macro free.


    the player is a little picky about VCD (as long as they are perfectly WhiteBook complaint they seem to be fine) and apparently don't like DVDrs produced on standalone DVDr recorders.

    But other than that seems a good enough DVD player - and is the cheapest one about.
