USB 2.0 port allows you to hook up external devices and your computer. :thumbsup:

I've got the model down from this and it'll play everything I can throw at it. They even have upgrades you can download from the Philips site . . .

Your pic is wrong

some good reviews on Amazon. tempted

I recommended this player yesterday.

hotukdeals.com/ite…728 Post #15 :thumbsup:

It has been this price since the VAT change, actually £1 cheaper until recently.

come again?



I suspect that the individuals nick is wrong and that it should read:

JohnnyBMad

Brilliant player, great deal

ANy idea if it plays XVid?


This drive can also be made REGION FREE:
open tray
press Setup
select the Preference page/tab
Press 1,3,8,9,3,1
Press up/down key to select "0"
and hit setup to exit

Does this play .wmv clips?

yes it will play xvid
not sure of wmv

I bought one of these from Amazon 2 weeks ago at that price (Order Placed: 16 Dec 2008 ). I have two or one which looks different at the front but same model. Both play Divx and XviD at fairly high bitrates >1500 and file sizes on a usb flash drive 16gbin fcat no problem playing file sizes at 2gb on a 16gb flash drive

These are far better than the cheap sumvision Phoenix which was binned and this replaced it

yes made mine region free, infact those look the exact words i posted on AVforums dvd region free hack section ;-)
and it plays AVI files spot on from the USB flash drive

Will it connect to Self-powered External USB Hard drives? (don't mean memory sticks)

Oh pants, here we go.......stop posting deals that mash my head:thinking:
Which one is best, this one, or the Toshiba SD-580 posted earlier?

Yes.

col;3888136

Yes.



which hard drive

This is the best play-all media DVD player on the market. The previous model was also fab. Look around for pricing though as I got mine from Currys for £46. It does have a strong price point because it's so good.

If you're in the market for a great DVD player that'll play everything this is it.

I use my Philips with an 8GB USB drive too. Perfect.

I may be wrong but last time I checked Amazon and Pixmania were the only suppliers in the UK selling this model?

Tough call between this one and: ]http//ww…ay/, which I posted up previously.

Both are great deals, but I'd say the Toshiba has the edge. It's multi-region out of the box, and has a better review average. Plus it's a better brand. But the difference in cost is minimal, so either way it's a winner!

The 5980 is also good I have one of them for daughter only goes up to 1080i though but does play the files I mentioned in previous page

I have a TV with DVI HD input. Any idea if a DVI to HDMI cable will just work? (I heard these don't transmit sound, so can this dvd player do that seperately?)

This one can also have the firmware upgraded which is tempting. For the geeks amongst us details here. I think this might swing it for me. Details here just in case board.softpedia.com/ind…603 and also blog.techflaws.org/200…aq/

One question though - wasn't this about £49 on Amazon a month or so ago?

toshiba xde-500 or this ? is there any difference other than upscaling?

Well, it will... and there is a list of recommended USB external drives that Philips recommend... but you're still better off using a USB memory stick instead.

I'm not sure if it's the speed of external drives, but when I was using my (approved) bus-powered USB external drive with this model, regularly a movie would freeze, then take a second or two to "catch up", then continue playing. I download updated firmware updates, but this problem still remained.

Using any of my USB sticks, this problem just doesn't happen, and I thoroughly recommend this DVD player on that basis. Worth every penny, and I much prefer having one of these, than a chunky "media box" connected to my TV.

Does anyone know what cables this comes with?

philarmonic;3889571

Does anyone know what cables this comes with?



None

I have a couple of NAS's which can be connected to USB also, anyone know if it will read from one? One is a buffalo Linkstation and the other is an icybox. If i can acces the contents of a nas, then im sold.

what about MP4 format? -Anyone tried it with that?

Wow, a DivX DVD Player which Upscales to 1080P and I haven't heard 1 bad thing about it from anybody, can't believe it! Looks like I'll have to get this one!

Quick question, would making the player Region-Free using the Remote Hack conflict in any way with making future firmware upgrades?

Shouldn't do, as you can put it back to region 2 using the hack as well, but you may have to repeat the hack when you upgrade.

Making it region free has no effect on the upgrades. after the upgrade the machines still region free. . .

Can't believe it - it's gone up to £62.63!!

Nothing in the Phillips online spec mentions xvid (only divx) - a few peeps have said is can play xvid and it seems a fairly important thing that should be clarified before we part with the readies.

can any one confirm - does the dvp5990/05 def play xvid video?

cheers

Jeff

It'll play xvid. Philips machines will just about everything...

got mine today, very sexy and very sleek! waiting on delivery of my hdmi cable tmw - will add my thoughts then

also this is still in stock so not sure why it has been expired.

thanks op - rep added!

Price has gone back to £62.63, that's why it's been expired. Still a great machine even at that price. . .
