    Wanting to get a new DVD player as my Yamada 6600 is playing up(wavy picture, picture skips). My main needs are

    1) Multi Region
    2) Plays all the different media types +R, -R etc
    3) Optical Out
    4) DivX/Xvid (needs to do both)

    I see in the specs on Play that it does DivX but it doesnt say Xvid. Would like to be able to handle PAL/NTSC progressive scan as I am thinking of getting a new TV so would want to have these features.

    If there are any other players that are below £150 that would do the job better, please advise.

    Many thanks

    Xvid won't be listed but it will play them fine except for packed bitstream but thats easy enough to remove.

    I'd also check out the LG DVX9900H, it can do packed bitsteam xvids. Not sure if its got the connections your require.

    Just a comment on the price - you'll find it a lot cheaper here

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Thanks.

    Just wondering if it will do +R/RW media as it just mentions -R/RW. Anyone got one at all that could verify?

    Can anyone verify DVD+R discs work and that the player in multi region with RCE support? Some sites say its multi region others dont mention it. Want to get one of these in the next day or 2 but need to know its multi region as I have a few R1 discs.

    Many thanks
