    I am desperate to buy a DV88, but I am not going to spend a grand until I have had chance to test SVCDs on it!!

    I can't find a local dealer who has one, so I am hoping that someone will let me send them an SVCD!

    There is no hidden agenda... I just want to send you a CD which you can play and report back to me.. You can keep the disk afterwards.. I don't want it back...

    The SVCD will be of nothing in particular.. But if you want something.. I could always try and make one up..

    If anyone is willing to help.. Please get back to me, either to the forum, or to '[email protected]'

    Thanks in advance

    Jon - the DV88 does support SVCD, as it says in the spec. We also tried it out last year on a couple of Chinese SVCDs and IIRC it was fine.

    If you can't get help from the group to evaluate your home made SVCDs I suggest you send one to Arcam Support; provided it is not too long they will tell you what happens. E-mail is [email protected]

    You could also take one along to the dealer you propose to buy the player from and try it out :)
