Nope, not a player that records to DivX format as the title would imply, but quite simply a standard DVD recorder which has MPEG-4/DivX/XviD etc playback.
I purchased a Sumvision SV-1000 for my parents for Christmas after reading a few promising reviews, but it didn't live up to expectations at all - the general audio output is abnormally quiet, the remote control is pretty dire, unless you're aiming it directly at the player it doesn't respond, and even then it's 50/50, it outputs an odd noise every 30 seconds or no (not that loud, but still irritating) and the final straw is the fact that whilst playing DivX files, after a while it's almost like the player runs out of memory, the sound pretty much dissapears, it's extremely quiet and extremely crackily and doesn't sort itself out until the player's restarted.
My dad's spoke to his best mate and my uncle and has now got it into his head that he absolutely has to have a top brand, like a Sony DVD player, despite me telling him numerous times it won't play DivX files, and is generally extremely fussy about the media it plays, but he's not really having it... Thankfully my mum's a little more open minded and realises it's utterly nessecary to be able to play the DivX files and will go with whatever player I pick, but I want it to be pretty much spot on just to keep my dad happy, and of course to prove him wrong :)
I've looked around a few sites but haven't really found anything other than a Yamada player which has recieved pretty poor reviews, I'm not really sure I'd want to get that one. I guess I could always return this back to Savastore and exchange it for the same model and just hope our current player's faulty? I'm not really sure.
Enough rambling - quite simply I'm after a decent DVD recorder that'll play DivX files :)
