Twin SCART Freeview Receiver with USB playback AVI (DivX 3/4/5, Xvid) and MP3 files

Bought one about a week ago. Plays almost all my avi files.

Going to buy a second one unless someone knows any better players for the same price.



* Converts your TV or VCR to watch digital terrestrial channels
* Ultra modern compact design to compliment any flat panel TV
* USB socket to playback AVI (DivX 3/4/5, Xvid) and MP3 files
* Simple installation and set up
* 7-day Electronic Programme Guide (EPG)
* MHEG5 engine compliant with digital text services
* Twin SCART sockets
* Add to and sort your favourite channels
* Automatic and manual scanning modes
* Future proofed with 1000 channel memory
* Parental control
* Full-function remote control

If you have an old TV (non-digital compliant) with a SCART socket or want to make use of your VCR after digital switchover, this Digital Freeview Receiver will enable you to do this. Simply plug in your aerial feed to the back of the receiver, connect to the SCART input of the device (TV, VCR, DVD-R etc.) and after an initial tune you will pick up digital TV and radio stations.
As this model has 2 SCART sockets, it can be plugged into a TV and VCR at the same time.

I use a PS2 for avi files but this is a great idea. Provided it works well!

Do you know if it does the annoying thing of changing channel as you scroll through the EPG? If it doesn't, I shall have to go pick one up.

You'll need your Playstation doctoring. Quite a simple and low risk affair these days. There's an even safer way to do it but I'm not allowed to mention it here as it's the same method dodgy folk use to play pirate games.

Google's your best bet. Try starting with PSX scene. And James Bond game... I know it sounds odd but a bit of cryptic research beats prof leyton by a country mile... Heheh!

Oh... And it's free if you have the right model a memory card and not a screwdriver in sight.

It changes channels as you go through the EPG. Not really a bad thing for me as I use

There is another legal way, lol.

You can buy one of those Action Replay for ps2 e.g. http://www.play.com/Games/PlayStation2/4-/180487/Action-Replay-MAX-EVO-Edition/Product.html
You burn your movies in a cd-r and watch it through there.
New! Watch DivX movies on your PS2. One CD-R contains up to 3 hours.

You might be able to find it cheaper on ebay.

BigL... You're absolutely spot on but beware not all versions of evo have the media player bit included. Even though they seem to claim they do. I leared that the hard way. Heheh!

It's still worth a look on the scene site to check this and which versions - or models if you prefer - of playstation they'll work best with.

There again you could go for this deal for £20 which isn't that much more than buying the cheat disc and you get the freeview as well. I'm happy with the ps2 setup as it costs nothing with the right model and very little with others but worth considering your options.

I'm still unsure about what's legal and not. I think the doctoring is ok but it's the intent of playing pirate games the forums don't appreciate.

Do you burn your movies when watching it on your ps2 or do you use a usb stick?

I've also got a ps2 and ps3 and use my ps3 often to watch avi's through usb.

If you can send me a private message on how you altered your ps2 to watch movies I would very much appreciate it.
