    Hi

    I'll probably get me a Tosh 42wl66 LCD and want some decent upscaling payer capable also playing back divx content. Do those exist ?

    Not interested in hi-end players. Too expensive after splashing out so much wonga for a 42" :D

    I can only say that the Sony DVD player is far better than the Sony website as it most certainly DOES play DivX.:eek:

    I was watching some last Sunday:cool:

    Pioneer 696, check out the very long thread on here. Upscaling is good, divx / xvid is very good and its not fussy like some brands about discs.

    Very good upscaling player from the USA (there are UK agents), for around £160. Just look in this forum and you will see the threads. Can't link to it for some reason :)
