    Forget the dvp-642, it will never be available in Europe (official comment from Philips).

    Best I've come across as a player only is the Yamada 6700, should cost about 40

    I recently got a H&B HDD/DVD recorder.

    Apart from the fact that the HDD was (quote) "totally stuffed" (it wasn't, the software simply refused to acknowledge it's presence 80% of the time) the software was completely inadequate and certainly did not play divx files as they should have been played. Needless to say it went back and I got a refund. From the software problems I wouldn't be surprised if this company is a subsidiary of Microsoft. Except that it is French, which explains the software problems immediately.

    Given that the decoder chip in this player is the same as in the other H&B players, and from what I understand all the Kiss players, my recomendation would be that you avoid H&B and Kiss if your primary objective is Divx playback.

    BTW, replaced the HDD/DVD recorder with a LG RH7500. Excellent quality, excellent recording/playback, perfect Divx reproduction. A few minor niggles, but considering that the unit has only just come on the market I imagine firmware upgrades may well fix those.

    I think the dvp-630 is the eu equivalent to the dvp-642 and the 642 does kick a** only had a few files out of hundreds that didn't want to play.Menu trick works on most problem files.

    wat's the menu trick?

    It's very odd if the pic is blury(decoding issue) or the sound is off just a little, just press the "system menu " button on the remote.It clears up the issue sometimes.Almost like it gives the player time to think and decode properly.
