    you forgot to add Home delivery £1.50 and that's NEXT DAY delivery
    and it includes a SCART lead. I ordered one this morning, dispatch
    email arrived this evening, ETA tomorrow.

    Now that's what I call service!

    The Godalming branch had a pile of them in the window a couple of days ago - so yes.

    Just got mine, only one problem
    the latest XVID codec defaults to PACKED BITSTREAM, every xvid file you download now will have the PACKED BITSTREAM on, and the Mediatek chipset can't cope with PACKED BITSTREAM (produces jerky picture) so before you burn your xvids to disk, you will need to run them through a little proggy called "mpeg4modifier" and this cures the xvid jerky problems.
    http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=680
    (you also need .NET framework installed on your PC)

    PS, same as DK Digital 915 player, sightly different firmware, much smaller box, totally crap remote needs to be pointed straight at the player to work.

    plays everything (without packed bitstreams), MP3, WMA, MPEG, DAT, AVI
    as well as dvds and cds, dvd-r/rw, dvd+r/rw, cdr/rw. mp3 off dvdr
    Has rgb SCART, s-video, composite, digital co-ax, digital TOSlink, stereo phono, dolby 5:1 on 6 phonos. NOTE will not decode DTS, but will play DTS down the digital links to your DTS decoding amp.

    PJ,

    How do you carry out the fix? is it just a case of loading in the xvid file in the mpeg4 modifier and then saving it? and hey presto fixed file?

    Thank's

    Dino.
