Region-free DVD player advice

I'm looking to purchase a new DVD player (not Blu Ray), and would like to get the capability to play PAL DVDs. I would like this device to provide its output in the form of an HDMI plug.

I would appreciate any advice on what's out there currently in the Canadian marketplace. If it can be bought from a mainstream electronics supplier, so much the better.

I realize that there have been threads on this in the past, but not recently. An update on what is currently available in the market would be most welcome.

I've got two, a Philips one that I bought from Walmart & a Toshiba from Future Shop. The easiest thing to do is to look online, identify some models and then look up the models here, or look up the region free codes on the website I linked to and then locate one at a retailer near you.

Smile Seiki does it all

Look at the Seiki BD660. You have to plug a number - available on the net - into the remote and it then functions automatically as a multi-region player. It also plays Blu-rays with manual switching for all regions. All this for $78 at Walmart.
