Good Points
Dolby Decoder 5.1 (inbuilt) Plays anything you can throw at it. Simple to use, if i can use it anyone can!

Bad Points
Bought this DVD in multi region...?? came set as region 2, but found the code to type in to allow all region discs..

General Comments
After searching the net for "best buy" DVD players, i decided to purchase the CH-DVD 505 from Cyberhome. Firstly for the built in decoder (wow great sound!), but then again i have a Dolby Surround tv, so the quality i suppose should be second to none. Why watch a picture at the cinemas? it definitely brings that "rumble in the stomach" to my living room! Ease of use- Great even if your not a wizz with any buttons, although if you have big fingers carefull where you press! I plugged in, switched on and was ready to go in minutes..no probs. The downside to this DVD player is having to change its region code-from 2 (which is how i received it) to "multi" (allowing the playback of all disc 1-6), but i fished around the net for the code, found it, but then got mind boggled about which manufacturers number the player was..(There were 2) so i decided to leave it at region 2. Think i will leave that to an expert!

Hi, I bought one of these players too, looks greats and doesn't disapoint on playback either. Multiregion code is Power on with no disc in, press menu then press 1 repeatedly until a diagnotics menu appears, you can change regions here. I got the code given to me by the lovely people at richer sounds in Belfast.

I bought a 505 as a result of the postings above. All of you are correct, this is some bit of kit. I Don't have a problem with the electrical connection as described, mine fits perfectly. The quality of pictures and sound from this machine are mind blowing! Highly recommended! Excellent price and service from second-spin.com

My recently purchased 505 came with a seperate A4 sheet telling me how to set the regions, even though the instruction book doesn't mention it !! It's a great piece of kit though. One minus point, the power lead that came with it is a truely terrible fit.

Hi Jim, you can pick up the Cyberhome CH505 from second-spin.com for £99 quid at the mo, also includes free mainland shipping in the UK.
About dual laser technology:Full compatibility demands the accurate signal readout from all types of discs. Reading out different types of discs requires different wavelengths and a different focus. The individual lasers of the dual laser optical pickup mechanism are optimized for each wavelength and focus. This guarantees superb performance, no matter what type of disc is used. So as for the difference between the two, i couldn't really say, unless i had seen the 402,s picture quality in action. Therefore my opinion of the Cyberhome 505,s picture quality is faultless.

Hello Kev,
I've been looking for a Cyberhome 505 for a while, but not many people seem to stock them so with £80 burning a hole in my pocket, I bought a 402. There's still time to swop it, so do you know if there's any appreciable picture quality difference between them? The 505 claims `duel lens technology' (whatever that is.......).
Thanks mate,
Jim.

Yeah I'd like to be associated with the comments of the last speaker, except I think a little politeness might produce a code for us lesser mortals.
Please pass on the code matey.
Cheers Kev.

Eject,
Menu,press
1,
1,
1,
1,
...a special menu should then appear. Just change CONFIGURATION to "1" for Region 1 , "2" for Region 2 etc. and the player will playback a disc from another region.
Please note: I would advise not to go into any other menu, but if you know what your doing then hey, who am i to say.
