Nice find, have some heat my friend...

This looks like the LIMIT Blu-ray player HMV where selling for £49.99 a few months back. If this is the case then this should be able to play all region blu-ray's and DVD's with a code.

Edit: Going by the reviews on the Ebuyer website this is Multiregion for blu-ray and Dvd so this is a great deal. Might want to put Multiregion for Blu-ray in your post OP.

Hi. Does anyone know if this upscales normal DVD's to HDMI quality, or should I go for the Sumvision HDMI upscaler from ebuyer instead?

EDIT: Sorry just noticed 'Selectable DVD upconversion (720p/1080i/1080p)' in the description, my bad.
#6
mmmm may have to get one of these and you sure its multi region and plays EVERYTHING not just some blu rays from diffrent regions , i read somewhere theres no such thing as a multi region blu ray player , just some that play some blu rays but not all , something about them still developing the blu rays , thats why some of the older players have problems with the newer films

I personally don't own one of these, but going off the technology it has, it would be capable of upscaling DVD's easily as good as the Sumvision unit. Plus this is a full blown multi-regional Blu ray machine that is also multi regional on DVD's too!!

Your money would be safe with this machine. :thumbsup:

I own one of these have it set to Region A North America and Multi-Region for DVD.

It is how can I put a little temperamental the operating system is not as clean as a Sony etc, but I bought it for the ability to play Region A locked discs easily and cheaply, I still have a Sony BDP-S350 for Region B discs.

For Region Free Blu-rays the bootup and playing it is faster than the Sony.

On the reviews section on ebuyer people are saying it is multiregion for blu-rays and dvd's. You did read right about older players not being able to read newer blu-ray discs. This is why a lot of people buy well known brands like Sony or Samsung because they know they will have new firmware updates for the players. Where like these cheap blu-ray players no one knows if there will ever be any firmware updates.

Thats the point I try to get through to people all the time, these players might be cheap but they will be no good if they don't bring firmware updates out all the time, this might be multi region ( you can make the samsung 1600 multi region for blu ray if you use a different firmare) but is no good if then they don't do anymore firmware updates and they alot of disks then will not play on this player.

shame about the 2 gig limit on mkv
what about AVCHD will it play a full 8 gig file as you can convert MKV to AVCHD (8 gig in about 5 mins)
#12
Thx a lot just ordered.
#13


you'll be able to play most 720p rips of tv shows no problem with that limit, it's only going to be restrictive if you want to play pirate movies

Wonder if it will play MKV files off a dvd disk?

The 2GB mkv size limit still applies though which is what puts me off this. The Limit player was the same and I ended up getting rid of it.
#18
is there a program that will split MKV's quickly in to 2GB chunks without any recoding ?

HOT Just ordered quick.

Mostly good reviews over on AV forums even when the player was priced at £100:

Heres the instruction manual too if this helps anyone:

All you needed to do was split them into 2gb chunks via free software (which takes no time at all) and add all the files to a playlist.

Bit late now though eh ;) ?

Quick question:

I've got a 37" 1080p HDTV with an Xbox 360 connected via HDMI. The sofa is located 7 feet away from the TV.

I just wanted to know whether I would notice much difference in quality between a DVD being upscaled from the Xbox and a Blu-ray Movie?

I understand there is a difference, but I'm asking whether I would notice it by sitting 7ft away from the 37" TV

My Limit player plays 4 gig mkvs off a dvd. It is the file system used for USB (Fat32) that has a 2GB limit. You dont get this when playing off a dvd

will it play embedded subtitles from dvd burned MKV's or will the .srt file require separating and kept in the same folder ?
#33
This is a good deal.

I snapped up the Limit player when it was cheap and it plays everything I throw at it! It's a lovely machine for the price! I'm not sure about this player but the Limit has had a couple of firmware updates in the last few months!
#34
thinking about this as a cheap media player

Does it play most Divx and Xvid files aswell as Mkv's, guys ???

also is it simple for a granny to play files through the usb option ???

FAT32 has a 4gb limit, and a dvd can be in either FAT32 or NTFS or other file structure, and the same limitations apply. if it can play mkv files from an NTFS formatted dvd then you can get files up to about 8.5gb (the exact size differs slightly depending on + or - dual layer media)

it's FAT16 that has a 2gb limit as standard (you can get 4gb if you format it differently)

USB doesn't have a 2gb limit, it's an entirely different thing. you can run ntfs, fat32, etc via usb

i presume this player has a 4gb limit, which is just under the size that most pirate mkv movies are normally in

I have the Limit version and it has played all Mkv divx and xvid I have tried on it. So I would assume this is the same!

USB playback is simply plugging the usb in then selecting the file and pressing play.

Easy :thumbsup:

I have purchased anyway for my bedroom but is it easy to swap between region b to region a and vice versa?

Looks like a deal to me!

4GB, it doesn't support NTFS, only FAT32 which has a 4GB file size limit so you would have to split ya MKV's into 4GB chunks. Kind of spoils it doesn't it.
