Was the same price 2 months ago.

Anyone have this? Is it possible to put films on to a USB stick and plug it in to this and watch it? Thanks.
#3
No divx playback?
#4
I am on my second one of these Silvercrest machines in the past 5 years.

The first is just on its way out and I wasn't surprised as its had some abuse, so I thought I Would get another the other month, with the HDMI Upscaling.

These are great, plays anything I can throw at it (Within reason) also good quality, I bought the equivalent from Aldi for a freind a year ago and it might as well have been made in a chip shop.

Whats really great is I have 16GB USB Stick which plugs straight in and away you go.
#5
can it playback DivX videos?
1 Like #6
No idea, only ever play AVis to be honest never tried.

Be shocked if it didn't.

Lidl are very good at taking stuff back, so get one if it doesnt work send it back saying it doesn't work.

Having said that don't think I have ever needed anything to play A DivX file...

What files do you have in DivX out of curiosity that you desperately need to play!?

I thought DivX was a dying/dead format anyway?

DivX < LOL Who the hell uses DivX these days?



H.264(MPEG-4) is the future!! It's the doing what MP3 did for music! :-D

http://www.apple.com/quicktime/technologies/h264/

"What is H.264?
H.264 is the next-generation video compression technology in the MPEG-4 standard, also known as MPEG-4 Part 10. H.264 can match the best possible MPEG-2 quality at up to half the data rate. H.264 also delivers excellent video quality across the entire bandwidth spectrum — from 3G to HD and everything in between (from 40 Kbps to upwards of 10 Mbps).

How does H.264 compare with Windows Media 9?
Windows Media 9 is proprietary, developed by a single company; H.264 has been through intense peer review by worldwide experts from a large number of industry segments and is ratified as a worldwide standard. And while video quality tests are subjective, we believe H.264 delivers superior video quality when compared with Windows Media 9."

It sounded good until you mentioned a windows program, then theidea just fell apart.

I think this is the silvercrest model. These, in the past , have had great reviews and this machine shouldn`t be any different.. Great features too and it will play "divx " files. This is the norm now for dvd players and even PS3.
The upscaling is especially good if you have an HD television. Shown on a 1080 screen it`s almost (85% )blue ray. Which leads me to ask, why buy a blue ray player?
#10
I think it should play DIVx but NOT from the USB stick.(like what my LG one does!!)

Can you let us know where you can purchase an H.264 compatable player for 32 quid? I personally would buy 3 at that price!
#12
You can buy a philips with the same functions for £10 more. I got the DVP 5980 from Currys for £45 and it's great.

Simple you can't. Buy a popcorn hour and get rid of cd's and dvd's altogether.

It says on manual that only 1gig usb pen drive supported but i use a 4 and 8 gig pen drive just fine
simply download an avi and drop it onto your pen drive and away you go
it also has a hdmi and scart connection
some pen drives are not supported though ie play.com pen drive does not play either does one bought off bigpockets(peak) but a kingston datatraveller does and a cheap one bought off ebay from china does also(8 gig)
plays divx fine also

Can anyone tell me if this is region free and I am amusing in plays home made dvd's as it says dvd-r/dvd+r?

Who uses DivX these days?

Well I'd say 95% of rippers still do, considering very few stand alone players support H.264.

H.264 is fine if you only want to play the files on a PC/Laptop, but until many more players start supporting it not that many people will rip using that codec.

Oh, and the fact you posted that to make it look like you knew what you were talking about only made you look a fool.

I think you'll find that's XviD not DivX.

I think you'll find that's XviD not DivX.

I think you'll find it's both, considering they are both based on MPEG4...
The only major difference between the two is that Xvid is freeware, while DivX is proprietary.

People will always refer to both of them as DivX as that's the more commonly known of the two (hence you can buy 'DivX' capable players, but you wont find one with an Xvid sticker on it).

Anyone know if there are postage charges from Lidl?

Can this one be unlocked to play dvds from all regions?
Got many NTSC dvds so it´s a must.

It's not region free, but it is really easy to crack.

Details are at the bottom of this page:

Got this for £16.99 in a new store in Glasgow this month. :whistling:

Well said. Someone earlier asked if it had divx playback and instead of getting a yes or no answer all he got is some grief of other people. Next time I'm after a new DVD player I'm making sure it can play one of my many divx/avi files direct from an external hardrive.

and the reason its called xvid is because thats divx spelt backwards :-p
#30
I understand this is not a DVD recorder but does the scart socket allow loop through to upscale an external source such as a cable box?

Well spotted..........

I think they mentioned the windows program as a comparison. I.e. Mpeg-4 part 10 is way better (according to this) than the Microsoft developed Windows Media 9.

Hi, need some translating as not very up to date on the technical side!

So... can this player play films that have been put onto a compatible usb drive?
If so, how do you do this!? i.e could i put my dvd collection onto a usb drive (if large enough) and watch them by plugging it into the dvd player?

Back to basics!!

Thanks in advance.

By process of elimination, I believe that this is the homepage for the said product:

http://www.mysilvercrest.de/en/artikel.php?a=163

And the manual can be downloaded from:

http://www.mysilvercrest.de/foto/support/CV_KH6517_18_LB6.pdf

Hopefully I'll be able to pop down to my local LIDL and pick one up.

I did read on another forum that the drive itself failed within a matter of months...... I also own a different SilverCrest dvd/divx player from LIDL ........ and the drive has stopped working........USB & SD slot still works thought, so saves me burning them!
