    Hi Can anyone recommend a machine that has

    HDD/DVD Recorder
    DivX Playback from USB Memory Stick or External Hard Drive
    HMDI/DVI Output (Would be nice to have)
    The only player I can find that has everything except the HDMI Output is the Phillips DVDR3460H.

    Has anyone bought or heard anything about this model as I can't find a review anywhere?

    Does that unit let you copy stuff (Xvid/DivX films) from USB to the hard drive?

    Personally I want a device where I drop DivX stuff (films/episodes) onto the unit preferably from a USB stick, worse case from a DVDRW!

    Bet you can't do it!!! That would be FAR too useful!

    It seems you can copy in images and audio, but it doesn't mention importing video in that way.
    The recorder also includes an Entertainment Engine , which enables you to upload digital images or compressed audio files at high speed, via the front-in USB host. You can then create a JPEG slideshow, whilst compressed audio is being played, or even print photographs from the hard disk via a PictBridge compatible USB printer. This means that your recorder now also serves as a convenient central library of video content, audio titles and digital photographs.

    See! Nothing main-stream lets you do it... very very daft!


    I bought a Yamada DTR-1000HX a few months back and this could do it. I could download DivX/XVid media to the HD from DVDRW disc or USB (only USB 1 unfortunately), and then watch it later. So I could store a media library of films and tv series etc....

    However, there were a couple of really stupid annoyances with the unit which meant I returned it...


    I'm just waiting for a good unit now with this functionality on it!

    Maybe the next Yamada will fix those stupid problems :)

    Can you point me to a small DivX file I can download and do some tests on?

    Try it with just a standard AVI? Have you got one of these units?
