[QUOTE=heyman421;2038657]I had always been an advocate of divx/xvid, but now that i have an HDTV, i’ve found myself going out and procuring DVD copies of all my movies.
The divx files look completely unacceptable on my tv.[/QUOTE]
There’s nothing inherently wrong with DIVX, or any other MPEG-4 format. Given the right bitrate and resolution settings, you shouldn’t see any difference at all. Sounds like yours have inadequate bitrates or the wrong resolution for your monitor.
