Totally agree, heat added.

I've got this dvd player and it has played everything I've got so far, including divx movies on a memory stick through the usb port. Good deal.

Great buy - I've got one and the ability to play divx odff the usb is great!

Does it have usb 2 port?

No, it's 1.1

Whats the differance?

Speed of data transfer.
USB2 ports are much faster than 1 or 1.1.

Explains why some people have problems playing movies with high bitrates from the USB memory sticks.

USB 2.0 has a raw data rate at 480Mbps, and it is rated 40 times faster than its predecessor interface, USB 1.1, which tops at 12Mbps.

Is there a significant picture quality increase by upscaling to 1080i???

As i will only get one if it does

Do any players upscale to 1080p?

Yes, Philips do a DVP5980 which does & is usually a decent price on Amazon. I have the DVP5960 (as my TV only does 1080i) & it is well worth the money.

good deal, is there cheap (reasonable) divx dvd player that has usb 2.0? please link the site

usb 1.1 does let it down, i find it lags behind sometimes on HD DivX.
Other than that its a good player. easily updated too.

Yep, me too! heat added :thumbsup:

I think this offer may well of finished - link is showing the price as £63.44 and dispatched via Popcorn not Amazon

I've got this DVD player and although it's a good player, the remote control is terrible. So bad I've had to buy a universal one for it.
Having said that, it's at a good price at the moment so if you're willing to buy (or already have) a universal remote control it's well worth the money.

(I did buy this DVD player about 6 months ago and I know that Phillips had a fair few complaints about the remote so they might have improved it since I bought it anyway)

All gone now, unless you count marketplace at loads more money

i saw this one in costo recently (slightly cheaper than current scan price). decided to go for the slightly cheaper philips 1080p model at Amazon

In reply to Kiwinater (is 1080 worth it?), Planet Earth, Blue Planet, Toy Story, Over the Hedge, etc.....breathtaking improvement in picture!
