i just wrote you a reply on other thread giveing you getails about this subject
i,ve had one for 18mnths,wouldnt change back.
I have the Oppo 1080p upconverting DVD player that also plays DivX. It works pretty darn well except that if you pause the video for long enough that the player goes into screen saver mode, you usually have out of sync video and audio until it fixes itself. Usually this means you hear the audio fine the entire time, but the video is 3x speed and then 1/3x speed...or something. In other words, it's not flawless but pretty darn convenient!
My player was just a tad over $200, but my buddy has a $30 Magnavox that works great for DivX...of course my DVDs look much better ;)
I love my RCA odel DIVX player and have experianced no problems. Of course everything I burn is in MPG-2 mode as Data Discs. They play perfectly with no sync problems. Got it at Walmart for $39.98.
odel = model sorry for the typo.
Ah, I always burn the .avi files...I burn one set that I keep for regular use, and the other is for my "archive"... I don't care to convert it to MPEG-2, guess I'm just lazy :)
n8ph8ts said on my profile that the H&B DX-3255 DVD/DivX player is a good model. I googled it and the first page I landed on had clear instructions how to make the thing region coding free which is a bonus.
I haven't seen them anywhere in Aus though, but there are tons of $30-50 generic brand players out there.
Do not know if this is correct.
It would seem to me that anything that has been ripped to AVI or MPG would be region free and same with the downloads.
I do nothing to any downloads that originate from overseas except convert them to MPG-2 and they all play fine for me here in the USA.
So all you have to do is burn them as data CD/DVDs and they should play anyplace opn DIVX/dvd players.
In Australia I find stratfields always have divx dvd players. That is where I bought mine
I'm in AUS and I bought mine from Aldi. Yes Aldi. Works fine. Picture quality good. No need to convert to MPEG-2 although I might give that a go.
Aldi....LOL. They call 'emselves a supermarket?
The though of watching a whole season on one DVD is great. Fed up converting 4 or 5 episodes on one DVD to watch wish i could buy a DivX player in the UK.
A friend of mine from another site is from the UK and he has one. In fact he is the one who first told me about them. They must be available some place in the UK.
im in the uk onlyme...i got mine here from the internet.

can always get a media gate, so you just plug your hdd drive straight into your tv, it has its own remote and you will never have to burn a disc again.
I have a modded XBOX with XBOX Media Center, it's awesome it plays almost anything video music games
