I have just opened and installed my nice shiney new 5055GDL+ DVD Recorder.
It plays DVD’s perfectly
It plays DVD’s with DivX perfectly
It sounds like a bag of nuts and bolts when a CD is inserted, followed by a loud clicking noise and then reports the drive is empty whenever I put a CD in it.
Amazon will be having this one back for a replacement me thinks.
Anyway, while it worked I managed to run a DivX test CD through the machine and found the following
DivX (3.11 up to 6) and XviD supported with MP3, AC3 and WAV audio streams.
Supports 3 B-frame encoded XviD but does not support Qpal or GMC.
Can copy XviD files to the HDD for playback later
Can copy home made DVD’s to the HDD for later playback (and all menu’s etc work).
Just sitting here now waiting for the returns to proceed so I can get a fully working unit.
