I'm thinking of the Pioneer DV-380 - can I do better for sub £100?
The Sumvision does. I know because I have 2 of them.
Shop around. I got mine for £90 from SVP but prices fluctuate.
Pioneer DV-380 does play Xvid, how ever you should remeber that it's only DivX® Certified and not Xvid. But so far it has played all Xvid i've tested.
I was thinking of getting mine from AV-LAND for £80 delivered - good supplier?
The pioneer imo is a good player, no problems with xvids par packed bitstream. Many players have that issue but its easy to fix before you burn.
Avland, good in my experience
Thanks. What is the problem with packed bitstream? Is this a common problem with all XviD/DivX compliant players?
Many players will get tripped up by packed-bitstream-encoded vids.
Use MPEG Modifier to determine whether your Xvid has it, then just unpack to a new file, then burn that file to the disc to view on the standalone player...
