    I have an Xcard but I'm not into divx so can't answer sorry. There is a forum on the Sigma website where you should be able to get an answer.

    Great card by the way!

    Hi, yes i use the x-card it plays xvid just fine,although i prefer Divx it just looks much better to me.Used to have H+ but the xcard is much better picture quality .Pity the GUI is so poor!

    I just use the s-video out as i send everything through my Sony 1080 and this just uses s-video switching. As for annoying quirks if you play a Divx/Xvid/Avi file you have to add it to the playlist before playing rather than just opening it
    But all in all it is a very versatile player much more than any DVD player i know of. 10 out of 10
