“Also anyone who can reccommend the best DivX compatible player out there would also help”
in my opinion in pure playback and features it’s hard to beat a XBox1 console running XBMC (XBox Media Center)
as it play’s back pretty much any video format a PC can play (besides HD cause of CPU limitations) and you can even stream video (video file on PC itself) from your PC to the XBox to play it back on your TV
and i hear you can get used one for like 40-50 dollars at places like gamestop etc etc.
plus you can adjust where the image is displayed on your tv with XBMC… i.e. eliminate the overscan which basically cuts off some of your image on your typical dvd player etc.
p.s. by default the XBox1 cant play XviD/DivX … so when you get it you will have to open up the xbox1 console and connect it to your PC’s IDE port etc etc in order to modify it to get it to do the good stuff … it’s 100percent free though if you got a PC with a cd/dvd burner.
… that’s what mine pretty much looks like (i.e. the old XBox360 dashboard) except i got some fancy looking stars on mine in background but mine pretty much looks like that… by default XBMC dont look like that but you can get the ‘MC360’ skin to make it look like that.
