Pioneer DVR-112: Where to buy in US? Crossflash?

Postby kc7gr on Sun Feb 25, 2007 1:53 pm

Having been fairly impressed with the specs of the new DVR-112, I've been looking for a place to buy a pair of them. The problem is that, probably due to Hollywood's paranoia, they don't seem to be readily available in the USA.

I've looked at a couple of UK dealers, but they don't appear to be set up to ship to my side of the pond.

So, this raises two questions:

(1) Does there exist a dealer in the UK or other country that has the 112 (preferably the 112BK), and is set up to ship to the US?

(2) Failing that, is it possible to cross-flash the 112D into believing that it's a 112? I've been able to find 112D's all over the place, as one might imagine, but I'm uncertain if it's the same hardware.

Thanks much.

If you want to walk into a store Best Buy carries the 1810 I think it is which is a retail version. New Egg sell them online and has deals and free shipping every so often. You can flash a D model to full non d ram and label flash support, also adds auto bitsetting with the right version. Look here for the goodies http://tdb.rpc1.org/index.htm

Thank you. I may have a line on an Ebay seller that has non-US 112's. so I'll see what my options are.

Keep the peace(es).

Your welcome, if they can get the a112 fancy bezel unit for a good price I'd bet a bunch of us would be interested, I know I would, as long as it's not as much as a hd burner.

I agree, that nice round metal eject button would be worth a premium =P~ :D
