Has it got a convection hob?



lol... they only gave it a silver medal...

Looks good, like the usb port

It gets some pretty good ]reviews - I'm very tempted.

It looks like making it multi-region is not simple....
... but then how many region 1 divX will you be playing? :whistling:

does it play xvid?

Ah. Good reminder!!!! Not sure if Id want to lose my 130 Region one … Ah. Good reminder!!!! Not sure if Id want to lose my 130 Region one discs!!!!!! Having said that, I think Ive a few multi-region players around the house and an HTPC that can cope!!!:whistling:



You might be able to find a hack remote for it Genuine Copies sell them for about £10 - but don't seem to list this model.

Might get the black one to match my Pioneer plasma , but think the silver one looks better


Home Cinema review , it beat all the others , voted hot.

homecinemachoice.com/cgi…480

the Pioneer DV400-V. This
deck has it all – stunning upscaled
1080p pictures, superb sound,
refi ned looks and a top-drawer
feature list. Put quite simply, it’s the
entry-level deck to beat in 2007

Is this better than Pioneer [cheaper as well]

Multi-region is easy on this by upgrading the firmware and then following (simple) instructions:
pioneerfaq.info/eng…ion

I'd take a Pioneer over a Philips all day long. Excellent price for an excellent product. If you are in the market for a DVD player, what more could you ask for? Voted Hot.

Xvid is the same as Divx, all players that state Divx will play Xvid.

You burn the firmware to a CD, stick it in the player, let it upgrade. Then press and hold a button on the remote to make it multi-region. I know it might look a little complicated, but I've done it quickly and easily on my last two Pioneers. I've know other people who've managed to do it successfully as well.

Wow..is your job well paid? lol...burning a firmware file to cd i think i could manage quite easy myself. Building a IR to use a programmable remote is not necessary.

It doesn't seem that hard, and there are plenty of instructions online. Configuring your router for the first time however is not easy.

gone up to £82 now........ boo!

NEWBIE first post, so go easy pleasssssssssssse...

bought this 2months ago, would recommend it. Played .avi,divx,multi regional dvd movies from a usb stick & SD card and works a treat.

Great deal. Cheers Sale!

Be with me on Tuesday. Sweet!

Hardly simple if you dont have the right equipement!!!



Agreed think ill wait for a similar deal with an easier multi-region hack!

from that linked 'salesmans review'

"Engaging upscaling sees a slight effect, but nothing especially dramatic. Remember that an HD Ready TV may well already upscale a non-HD image better than a budget DVD player anyway, so a bit of 'compare and contrast' will help you to decide which is the better of the two."

Useful if you dont have a DVD player or just want the Dv X features.
I recall Asda had the Dual DDVDH1 DVD player at ASDA for £20. Quite a few clones of the Asda one can supposedly be found at £25. Sounds like they wont have as good a picture as the Pioneer.

edit - extra info in post below but re dv-600

I have the dv-600 (the next model up, but almost identical to this). I can confirm that it does indeed play divX (very nicely) from the USB port.

Why anyone who is serious about their movies (...and if you're after an upscaling to 1080p via HDMI I'd say that was fairly serious) would buy a non multi-region machine is beyond me!

...icy cold!! :?

It's not difficult to make this multi region if you are PC savvy.

You have two choices - either flash it with a new firmware via a burnt CD or fire some remote codes at it using a programmable remote (like a Pronto or Harmony or PC with an IRDA port). I've got the DV-600 and made it multiregion by using the remote method and it works perfectly.

All the info you need is here....
pioneerfaq.info/eng…ion

Nice one.

Heat added...

Never had any HD stuff before..........would this be a good choice to go with my 37" Hanspree tv?
It has a single HDMI connection.

Also hoping to bag me one of those LG dual format drives for my pc

Shame Scan don't use Quidco cos I spend a fortune there....joined Quidco yesterday and am already £40 up (once credited)

Will this play HD DVD's ???

looked a great deal but now showing as £9999.99!! cant really justify it at that price! :w00t:

showing up as £9,999 for me

£11,748.83

I have actually owned both this Pioneer player and the Samsung DVD-HD870 (scan.co.uk/pro…465), which is only £52.86, and personally I found the picture quality on the Samsung to be superior. Plus, it's played everything that I've thrown at it so the Sammy gets my vote instead
