    i'm thinking of buying one of these, i was wondering what everybody thought of them. i download alot of tv programs which are avi files, i'm hoping the 5960 will stop me wasting time converting them to dvd and mpeg. does this feature work well ? and will it still play my mpeg and vob files ? also does the multi-region hack work ?
    thanx

    agreed with all of the above. The remote is bit week. However picture quality is great and DivX/Xvid support is excellent.
    I use a Western digital 60gig passport drive on mine and it works supperbly.

    this might be just what i was looking for.
    now for the 1.000.000£ question:
    can it handle subtitles off the usb stick?
    could you give me feedback on this, pls?
    try to save a subtitle file with the exact same name as the video file (some players don't play the subtitles if the filename is not *exactly* the same as the video file, including upper and lower case chars.), and see if it works. If it does, then i might have a winner!

    tip: opensubtitles.org is a good place for subs.

    cheers
