Suggestions for DVDR with DivX/XVid + 5.1

Hi all
I’m having a scout around for a new DVD Recorder. It needs to have DivX/XVid playback and 5.1 output. I don’t need a Hard Disk. I would like DV input for my camcorder.

I’ve had a look at the specs and forums on many players and there seem to be several available, however what I’m trying to avoid is problems with poor quality players and things like bad audio/video sync which has been my reason for returning my MustekR100LM. I seem to have found various problems with Sumvision Sv1000, Yamada 8400X and LiteOn 5115GHC just by looking at forums.

Has anyone any suggestions for reasonably trouble-free recorders with all these features. I’m happy to accept any of the above listed players IF issues have been solved by firnware updates etc.

Any ideas? Needs to be available for purchase in UK please.

Thanks
