Divx DVD Player With USB

I can't seem to find a good deal on the net!

I want a simple cheap DVD Player that plays Divx (Xvid) and with a USB connection as I don't want to waste too many DVDs and rather put the Divx files on a USB stick!

Thanks in advance!

I'm looking for something like this too. So far, I've been considering the Philips DVP 5160 or the 5960 (they are similar but the latter supports the 1080i HD format). I'd love to hear some reccommendations of good quality DivX players with USB support, but without HD features; the Philips models are a bit pricey (~£40), and I really have no need for HD.

Biostek seems a decent brand, from what I've been able to gleam from a quick browse of some forums, but the units are supposedly quite flimsy. Also, this particular model is supposed to have trouble playing DVD-Rs. I might personally still buy it if I knew it could reliably play off a USB stick, and the format support was as good as more expensive models.
Anyone else know anything about this?

is it possible to just get a striaght usb connection from pc to the dvd player Then play off your hardrive?

Have the LG DNX190UH play, everthing straight of my full toshiba 320gig hard drive, takes a minute to starting up from the hd and will not play the hidef divx but works with everthing else. Looking for a cheap alternative for bedroom. Thinking about the asda onn player £29 or the philips £40 at amazon.

Highly doubt it... The USB protocol isn't really made for networking, and what you're talking about is basically a network. There are some top-of the market devices that can network with a computer (even wireless ones these days), but they sit closer to the £250 price bracket, and require some tech savvy to set up. If anyone has heard of a cheap one, I would be thrilled to be wrong in this case.
USB external hard drives work on mostUSB Divx players, but even then I think the partition size can't be too big and it needs to be formatted in FAT32.

My pc base unit has an entry level gfx card, for about £22 with TV-Out. Equipped with an s-video to scart lead, i connect my pc to tv that way and all media content on my pc plays through the tv's s-video in, from movies (played as dvd on the pc's drive), downloaded or streamed content. Not everyone would want the pc next to the tv but it works for me.......
I'd love a small device/box, that could just connect to the tv this way and be able to watch from just a stick WITHOUT the dvd playing aspect but again cos of the set-up i have now, i don't *really* need one

Yea I've been doing the same but it would be so much easier to play the Divx files from a USB stick on a DVD Player (don't have to leave computer on, etc . .)

About the Biostek, anyone know anything about it? Is it a good site to buy from?

I understand, but for me, cos i watch streamed tv/sports the USB method wouldn't work hence the status quo.

I know what you mean about the pc being on all the time, but i've gotten used to it.

Good luck :)

Why don't you just buy a ethernet external Hdd and connect it to your router so when your desktop is off you can play wirelessly over the network. I have a 250 gb iomega ethernet drive, which I connect to wirelessly to play video files which i inturn connect to my 42 lcd tv, plays fine with no time lag.
