This was purchases as a replacement for another xvid/avi/divx player that failed after many years of use. My expectations were fairly low. Play back carefully encoded xvid files, scale the videos appropriately and use whatever connector my receiver and/or TV required.
Initially, this player was connected via component video cables, then when a new TV arrived, we switched to HDMI for easier connections. Both of these connections has worked as expected.
DVD Video performance is, uh, beautiful. DVDs are up scaled to 1080i very nicely.
Audio performance has been good too. Since migrating to a newer HDTV, surround sound output hasn't been tested since the HDMI goes into the TV only. Our connections currently do not support surround sound, but it worked nicely going through the THX receiver in the previous configuration.
Video codec support is mostly as expected, but appears to be less optimal with xvid encoded content than my other 2 very old hardware players. Stuttering and pixelation during playback is a problem with this player for most xvid/avi content I've tried. This is the main reason for only 3 stars.
Other players have infinite scaling while this device has just 2x, 4x, 1/2, 1/4 scaling. This infinite scaling deals with TV overscan, so it really is desired. Taking the same content to another hardware divx/xvid device, a MediaGate MG35, and playing it over a wired ethernet connection plays it back perfectly on the same TV.
Jump by time doesn't exist on this player. This matters for longer AVI content that you don't want to fast forward at 32x to reach the part you're interested in.Read more ›
The only good thing about the player is if I stoped the it in the middle of a movie and turned off the power it would start back up where I stopped. We got a Sony instead and it will do the same thing.
