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.

My lg multiregion player kind of died after 5 years, got a new mini player as a present last june and it's dying as well.

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.

Use search again and find all the post moaning about the Toshiba 340 having problems reading discs, no firmware updates etc....

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

Yes it is.
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!
