[B]have a look at this guys

i found this on the american ebay auction.


could this be the future of divx [/B]
No, that is the PAST of divX. That model is the old Circuit City sold divx players which came out when dvd players were fairly new.. other than the fact that they have the same name, there is no relation between that divx and the divx which we're talking about.

That's right, I remember that divx player. I thought that format would take off. Seemed to be a good idea at the time...

i had a panasonic dvd/divx player.
it came from america and had a modem built in.
from reading the manual i worked out that you had to go to a video rental store, buy a disk with the film on, as soon as you put it in the drive of the player it would contact somewhere to authorise the disc. then you could watch the film and have the choice of keeping the film for a price or throwing the disc away.
sounds complicated and before you ask i never tried a normal divx disc in it, although i doubt i would have worked anyway.

[B]Yes, DivX movies can use dolby AC3 audio.. I have never heard of DTS being used though, I can see no reason why a DTS stream could not be used (whether it will play back is another matter)... Also OGG 6 channel audio can be used, although they have not got the channel coupeling working yet. [/B]
how would you connect a computer to a dolby digital receiver to get the surround sound?

I guess you would just hook it up using your optical or coaxial out.

Well grief. Standalone Divx;-) players have been out for a long time. Not just a homebuilt little crap either, I mean a real mass produced rig. Look at this: ***********

I'm surprised that nobody has ever seen these before.... By the way, I tried to register a long time ago to post something like this, but it never let me register... I just now got accepted hehe... been reading this forum for a long time.
