    Does anybody have a full list of file formats the player can play?
    can it play .mpg files which contain mpeg2 video and ac3 or mp2 audio (ie something recorded with a tv card)?
    can it play transport stream files (.ts)?
    can it play H.264/AVC files in a MP4 container?

    Not likely

    No chance at all

    Not so fast, jok11n. My LG DF8900P happily plays .MPG files recorded by my VisionPlus DVB-T card, so no reason these machines shouldn't be able to do the same.

    I was just referring to transport streams, if you have a card that converts the files to MPG's then some of those can play but it's a bit of trial and error, I don't know of any list of compatible cards that can give the correct output, you should find that these players will handle anything that your LG can though as they are from the same chipset family.

    A problem might be file size. (just out of interest, how big are the files you have played bac?)
    I haven't tried any of mine, but I have found that my Compro card does use a format that some things don't like.
    I have heard though before that the VisionPlus cards do produce pretty good files for this sort of thing.
    If bac's LG plays the MPGs out of his Vision PLus card, then it is most likely that these will play the same files, as they are running the same chipset.
    However, if you have a different tuner card, you might not be so lucky.
    I will try some out of my Compro card and see how that goes.

    edit: - darn it, beaten by jok11n - he's in another country and still manages it :-)

    OK, just tried a 330MB 10 minute mpeg.
    This was recorded from the Compro DVB-T300 digital TV tuner card using WebScheduler with the ShowShifter mpeg encoder.
    Recording was from ABC2.
    Dropped the mpeg file onto a cdrw, fired up and played without any issues.

    I've managed to play files well over 2GB in size, which helps to explain my interest in support for the UDF disc format (ISO9660 limits files to a maximum of 2GB).

    One thing I've sometimes had to do for the LG is to patch the video bitrate in the MPEG stream header as the software I use with the VisionPlus card sometimes inserts a value that is outside the spec. for DVD video (i.e. >10Mbps).

    Cheers,

    Thanks for that info, that is precisely what I was wondering.
    (greater than 2GB)

    Thumbs up

    Picked up a couple of these Dvx players from the Wollongong Strathfields store. Many thanks to the contributors in this thread for making the selection of a cheap dvd/divx player easier.

    BTW the Wollongong store have heaps of these players left @$68

    I ended up buying one of these players (the XMS as I wanted the dedicated power off) however when playing .mpeg files with mpeg2 video in them the player does not seem to detect and account for the embedded aspect ratio.
    Ive uploaded a sample clip with the problem at http://rapidshare.com/files/7971020/...__02_.mpg.html
    Muxing the same file into a DVD will work perfectly, is there any chance this Is going to be fixed in the future?

    Additionally it would be great if pushing the zoom button on such mpeg files would allow it to be played in pan and scan mode (like a DVD with automatic pan&scan and automatic letterboxing set).

    Depends if it is a file issue or a limitation of what's possible, it will get looked at though

    Don't think it can do this though

    Sorry, but no that is how the MTK chip handles these files.
    You need to use your TV aspect ratio button (if it has one) to adjust that if possible.

    What is the difference between the power on button on the XMS and DVX?
    I have a DVX and I can use the remote to power on and completely power off the unit without touching the unit itself. This is the first DVD player I have that can do that.
    Can XMS do the same?

    The XMS case power button is a 240V power switch, the DVX is a 'soft' switch.
    I am pretty sure that with both of them the remote actually only puts them into standby, but they both shut down without leaving any annoying lights on the unit.

    Can't begin to tell you how hard that is to find these days, every maufacturer seems to want to go crazy with super bright blue LED's for some reason

    I've tried this clip on my LG DF8900P and it correctly picks up the 16:9 aspect ratio, so it is possible for a Mediatek based player to do this.

    If you ask jokiin nicely he might take this up with the factory.

    BTW, it looks like the sample clip has been taken from a DTV capture as the video bit rate is flagged at the DVB standard of 15Mbps.

    Cheers,
    BAC

    Gets your players noticed in the shops, no doubt...

    Well, I must confes that I hadn't tried that file itself, I was basing my response on how the Zensonic Z3x0 players handle my camera mpegs (which are 4x3, but always get stretched to 16:9)
    I wonder if LG wrote code at all for this, I'll have to download that clip and have a play.

    If you can have a look and let me know what you think it would be appreciated, I met with the factory this week and mentioned a few adjustments I wanted with the firmware and they are quite willing to do everything they can for us, they seem quite capable so far so hopefully if this is something that can be correctly identified and this version chipset is capable then it may not be too much of an issue for them to rectify.
