    Hi, can anyone recommend a DVD player that will stream media from my computer either wirelessly or via an ethernet cable. Furthermore, Divx etc support is a must. I've seen the Kiss players but heard that picture quality for the direct playback of DVD's isn't the greatest. Come across this player but can't seem to find a uk importer - looks v.interesting though.

    I just got a Momitsu V880N, I've had an original V880 for a long time, works pretty well on the few bits and pieces I've tried playing so far. Comes as region 0, the only thing it won't do is play RCE DVDs if you don't set it to region 1. Great picture quality, progressive output on component or DVI, custom resolution on DVI.

    No UK importer, got mine from Momitsu.nl their European distributor.

    Looks interesting although build quality is apparently pants. I'll have a good think about that one though. Any other suggestions?

    Not really, there aren't many network-capable players. I have an old V880 and also a KiSS 450, neither networked of course, but based on my experience with those chose the V880N: I liked the on-board scaler, very very few have a custom resolution capability.

    Build quality isn't great but I've seen worse ... it's not a Denon though, I'll give you that. :)
