    Does anyone know if the 550 displays JPEGs made at home on CDRs. Is it simply a case of putting some JPEGs on a data CD?

    Yes. simple as that.
    btw, does your 550 reboot from time to time during DVD playback? Mine and several others seems to. Pioneer say it is not a know problem....

    Ive been considering purchasing the 550, cant decide between that and the 454. You mention the jpeg viewer which i know is 1 diifference between the players. Apart from that and the looks is there any real difference between the 2?

    I don't think so.
    I just needed a very thin silver player to fit in my cabinet. It is excellent apart from the reboot problem :-(
    I do use the JPG thing alot though for digital camera shots.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    What do you mean by the reboot problem. Does the player switch off and restart during a movie?

    According to pioneer.co.uk , the 550 has 'Video Signal D\A Convertor 27 MHz/10 bit (A picture enhancer feature) which the 454, apparently, does not.
    I'm thinking of getting this player, but not if it keeps rebooting halfway through a movie! lol.
