    To save having to have 2 DVD players and to reduce the number of inputs I use on my AV Amp, does anyone know of a good quality DVD Player that will play DivX/XviD from DVD; something of equivalent PQ as the Denon 2910?

    Read the various posting about divx. High and divx, Pioneer 575 Philips 720 / Yamaha 550 is as high end as it gets. All divx players currently have a chip by mediatek, Zoran or Sigma regardless if they are El cheapo chinese player or a top brand. The Pioneer / Philips / Yamaha I've listed about all have the a mediatek chip.

    OK, they are the best I have come across. Granted I haven't demoed them for normal DVD play against something like a Denon 2910 but I assume you do get something extra for the money with the Denon.

    When I bought my Denon I was told I'd be better off spending £50 on a cheapo player just for DivX. It isn't the neatest solution but why compromise if you're looking for good DVD playback?

    Unless I go for some form of PC solution, a separate DivX DVD Player seems to be the best route; it just leaves the issue of the number of components I try to connect to my AV Amp. At least the PC solution would bypass that and go straight into the VGA socket.
