Hello!

I want to buy a good DVD player which also plays DivXs and XViDs.

The Yamada 6600 seems ok does anyone have any comments about it?

Thanks!

I'd go for the philips DVP 642. I will state that I have a bias because I got one a few months ago and its played almost everything I have chucked at it. You can get them for $90CDN or I think $70USD. The only file it hasn't played so far was 3ivx but it never said that it could so I could care less. Anyhow, it has progressive scan, plays PAL and NTSC format and can be made region free in about 30 seconds. The following website has a lot of feedback from people who own it and I'd say 95%+ of them are positive. http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers.php?DVDnameid=4117&Search=Search&#comments

Can't beat the price/performance ratio on this baby.

Hope that this helps.

Thanks for the feedback!

I'll definitely check it out!

P.S. Can you confirm that it plays XviDs? Cheers.

Iggy: I thought about the 720SA but I am unsure about the video output. Is the CVBS output your classic (yellow) video output?

Thnks!

Check this page for connection images.

There is a CVBS video output as well as an S-Video and a component.

Yeah I saw the review earlier but I have never seen the yellow video output called a CVBS! Not really a person who fiddles with electronics - call me a newb!

I have had good luck with the Xvids that I have tried in it. I have however, heard that some people have had trouble playing Xvid files. I don't think its on the official supported list but the link I posted before may have more feedback from other people. I can tell you that as recently as Sunday I successfully played back Xvid but again, I post the disclaimer, that I have heard of other people having problems with this. I don't know what the other people burned with but I only use TY02 and Verbatim 8x+R discs for most of my permanent collection. The last Xvid I played back was done on a fuji 4x+RW, media code RICOHJPNW11. All discs were burned with my NEC3500A, firmware 2C8. That's pretty much all the info I can give you aside from telling you that I just bought my little brother one of them too, for Christmas. Hope that was of some help.
