Can you recommend an upconverting DVD player with component output that ignores region coding and allows me to perform any action at any time?

Can you recommend an upconverting DVD player that doesn't treat me with active hostility? I'm specifically looking for a player that:
1. Ignores region coding, or can be easily set to ignore region coding without installing new firmware.
2. Never, ever restricts me from fast-forwarding previews/warnings/anti-piracy tirades or skipping to a particular menu.
I can work around these issues by ripping the discs and then re-burning them but this is highly inconvenient.
It would also be nice if the player had all of the usual standard cool things, like digital audio output and some nice pulldown detection, and didn't sound like a jet engine.
