    Pioneer 470 / 575, 470 is chearper. Use the search function on the forum and you'll find loads of info (mostly about the 575) but for divx playback they are identical.

    ok I can't find reviews for the Pioneer 575... only problem with the unit being noisy....

    can anyone tell me if this is better than the Toshiba 340 (i think) ?

    Thanks.

    Perhaps yours is, mine isn't. I'd contact Pioneer about it.

    hi,

    also have a look at the philips dvp630, which you can get for under £70.
    it plays dvd, dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, dvd+rw, cd, cdr, cdrw and vcd, svcd, mp3 aswell as divx.
    there is also a handy multiregion remote control hack
    has scart, s-video, component, optical, digi coax and audio outputs and has progressive scan
    so, quite alot of machine for the money...though u dont get a scart lead with it...and its pretty well built.
    i helped someone get one of these as it was in their budget and had more functions than they wanted, its well worth a look in my opinion.

    cheers,
    g

    My DV470 is dead quite also, sometimes I hear it spin up during playback but it doesnt effect the playback and the noise can only be heard for a few seconds so if yours is making lots of noise I would get in touch with who sold it to you and get a replacement.

    i think I'm just really fussy. I tried 3 470's and they all swooshed. I then got it swapped for a 575A and its just the same. swoosh, swoosh, swoosh on playback. I relegated it to the bedroom and now use a sony 955. Its quiet, but doesnt play Xvid. Cant have everything!
