    A KiSS player perhaps? I have an old 450 and it's pretty good, you may want to poke around their forum to get an idea of what's good and not so good about them.

    If your looking for a cheap player, the Cello DVD-8105 from Sainsburys is good value at £35. Plays Divx/Xvid etc. It is DTS as well, even though it doesn't say it on the box.

    I suspect you mean it simply passes whatever encoded audio it extracts from the MEPG stream out via S/PDIF, for that price it can't have a DTS decoder, surely?

    It doesn't have a DTS decoder as far as I am aware. The manual does say DTS/AC3 5.1 decoder but I don't know. It does have a DD 5.1 decoder. If you select DTS on the DVD, then it lights up DTS on the front of the player. I have mine running through my receiver.
