I bought a Philips DVP642 from Overstock (which they "cleverly" don't refer to by name). Refurb, but, well, they test those, right? I don't care if it's not totally new if it works, right?

Well, it doesn't work.

At all.

It's fubar. DOA. Useless. A paperweight. It won't read Firefly disc 1. It won't read a Good Eats DVD. It won't read a DVD-R. It's totally unable to read anything.

Damnit! I don't have time to deal with this right now. It'll have to wait until next week, probably.
