Would this Toshiba be better than the Philips model on earlier in the week?

edit: seems like this one doesn't have HDMI

I think its pretty much the same?
#3
No, they're not the same.

The Philips has hdmi and 720p/1080i upscaling - it also has a usb port. The Toshiba has neither AFAIK.

Rather recommend folk spend the extra few quid to buy the philips.

Good point. Still a good price comparitively though. Argos have a BUSH DivX DVD Player for the same price, I know which I'd rather buy.
#5
Yeah, it's a good deal if you don't have an HDTV. For those that have, they're far better off spending the extra cash to get HDMI connectivity and upscaling.

Is that Bush any good... seemed a steal for 29 for an upscaling HDMI DVD player...which Im just in the market for

i have this model and I think its way better than the phillips model I had previously as the phillips model stated it played divx but it didnt

Bought this and sent it back.

I cannot believe Toshiba make a DVD player that does not remember the place of where it last was when a DVD is stopped. It means having to scan through to where you were if you can even remember.

i phoned Toshiba who state it should have memory, but even the instructions intimate that the only way to save place is to let machine turn off through inactivity of 30 mins. It still did not work. I checked it was not DVD as it was fine on another older player. It was not faulty, it is how this machine is. I eventually went for Samsung upscaling player.

In the year 2008 a very poor product. It could only be a 50p addition to cost. This product deserves to sit on any retailers shelves.

A perfect example of why this is a BAD buy. If your grandad watches a DVD from start to finish then great. But if he chooses to stop watching a DVD then switches the machine off, when he returns to the DVD it will be at the beginning of the DVD. Even if you leave disc in machine on pause, after 30 mins it goes to stanby mode and resets back to beginning.

Not one for your grandad IMHO

Other than that, is it easy to use? He gets the tv series type dvds and would watch a whole episode before stopping it, so would be easy enough for him to choose the next episode from the menu

How about the Bush DVD2055HDB HDMI DVD Player? Anyone know whether that is easy to use?
#19
lol excuse my ignorance!!:oops:

just put the dvd in and press play ?

i bought 2 of these at christmas for people , can confirm they play xvid as well.

Other than that it is fine to use. If he is going to watch whole episodes before stopping it then fine. However I think it is crazy to have that kind of restriction on a DVD player. For goodness sake, petrol stations will be selling them for a tenner soon enough with £20 worth of fuel.

Well thats what most dvd players are like, but the one he has at the moment has to have tv/dvd/freeview turned off and then tv and dvd turned back on and stuff before it will play - never seen anything like it! Its ridiculous - hence buying a new one! My uncle bought that one....

They certainly do not. Most will revert to exactly where they were turned off from. Most DVD players ask you to make a consious choice of reverting back to the beginning of the disc. Otherwise they automatically go back to where they last were on the disc.

That is nothing to do with the DVD player as such. That is do do with the setup on your TV (although some DVD units allow some control of this too). By the sound of things your the TV has 2 scart leads. Sometimes Ext1 and Ext2 behaive slightly differently from each other. However on most TV's it is possible to chop & change. You might find that by just swapping the scart connections around the problem is overcome. The Freeview box should/could always be left on, and the DVD player is the unit being switched on/off. There is no reason why your set up should not be that once a DVD is inserted in the player the TV will show the content.

Again IMHO it's your setup and nothing to do with the player.

No its the dvd player, says all that in the instructions - plus we tried it in another tv and had the same problem (but dont with the usual dvd player used)

The connection wasnt scart to scart either, cant remember what it is but I know we had to get a new connection because we were expecting scart to scart and had bought one of those leads.

Okay. If it's not scart to scart can I ask if the other DVD player is? If it is then, IMHO any scart to scart connection with a new DVD player will overcome your problem. I also believe it still may be possible to set up your TV with your existing player, but I'll bow to your superior knowledge of experience on this issue. IMHO if you are replacing a DVD player that does not behaive in 'a normal fashion' don't bother buying another one that does not behaive 'normally' either.

I wouldn't see this as a problem, not with a DVD anyway. It doesn't take much to remember the time mark and just use chapter skip to get roughly to that point then scan the rest of the way - maybe five seconds work.

It would more annoying with a DIVX file I suppose because they don't have chapter points.

:thumbsup:hey guys, im looking a dvd player, but dont need any fancy features, well, multi region would be nice so i can watch american dvds, but i dont want to buy an unreliable brand name, i was hoping to spend around 20 quid for it. had a look on amazon and found this one...

The problem is that many discs do not allow you to just skip straight from the start to where you want. Most have 30 secs or longer of trailer then play/chapter search.

All I'm saying is that in this day and age it is harder to fond a player that has no memory than to find one that does.

Why would such a unit be considered hot.

It's not particularly cheap - not at this price - it's opretty much that price everywhere, nor is it cheaper than similar units
It's not brimming with fantastic features
In fact the only extraordinary thing about it is what I have highlighted.

Fair enough, I see your point. If it annoys you to begin with then an extra 30 seconds would be infuriating.

I don't have this machine, if there was an alternative (in stock) that played DIVX and had a USB port at this price then I agree it would be better (and I would get one).

What a strange post, how can you state its a poor product just because it does not have a feature you want? I for one cant remember the last time i stopped watching a dvd half way through so that feature has no interest to me. Would it really be that hard to go to the nearest chapter and fast forward?

What does interest me is it plays div x and is a Toshiba that is priced cheaper than most cheap brand players. Great Deal and voted Hot!
