The NS78H has several special features, including various play mode functions, playback picture adjustment and the ability to use the NS78H remote control on other televisions. Additionally, the unit offers child-lock features to prevent unwanted access to the player. You can lock the player's disc tray and lock individual DVDs so they cannot be watched. Unlocking the Sony NS78H requires pressing a series of buttons on the remote and entering your four-digit password.
