Good looks, plenty of features but more on the DVD 622/051.
Very sketchy manual, DVD 622 freezes and locks when playing VCD`s/S-VCD`s. Philips, not interested in the problem. Bad chips and software problem.
Firstly, its about time I thanked GURU for his help, however Philips were flumoxed, did nothing to sort the problem in the Philips DVD622 DVD player. It seems to be harder to find in Electrical Stores as the 623 seems to be its replacement which sports less features.
My Electrical Shop has stopped selling the 622 I believe, but are still with the 612. They could not do anything with the 622 either so I changed to the Pioneer DVD 444 S - excellent machine, multi region, good manual, plenty of features that work, new slimline design, very pleased with it and Pioneer who have, I`m afraid to say, made Philips look inferior in my opinion.
