Awesome DVD player, knocks the socks off my Toshiba XDE500 so I decided to bag myself one today.

You mention it knocks socks of the Toshiba XDE500, would you say the upscaling then was better than the XDE technology that Toshiba are using? Or referring to the fact it has more bells and whistles?

does this play AVI files?

Pretty much in every respect, the colours were a little more vibrant on CG stuff on the Toshiba but this seems much sharper.

An AVI file could be anything... AVI is just a file container.

Can I connect an external HDD via USB to this. I was looking to buy an upscaler for my USB HDD to connect to the tv for about 20 quid otherwise to play my avi and mp4 files.
rehydrated#20
USB input, could I connect an external HD with Divx files on it? Can the drive be any size? Thanks
