Hi Geekzone
First - thanks for a great forum! - I've sussed out heaps of good stuff with sky & broadbandLaughing

I'm wanting to get a dvd player with a USB connection.
I had an old DSE player that had one, & used it a lot.
great for watching downloaded movies/TV shows on an external HDD.
but as to be expected from a cheap player - it broke after a couple of years.

-DSE tell me that model has been discontinued
-The philips models only play music & pictures on USB not video
-I saw some at the local foodtown a while ago, but they are out of stock.
-I dont really want a modded Xbox or have to hookup the PC

I've looked for a while and cannot find any around - anyone know of a suitable player for me??
Thanks & happy new year!

Where in NZ are you located? There is a Zone model one with USB and card slots that is available from any New World or Pak 'n Save supermarket - if you local store doesn't have one in stock they should be able to order one in for you. I've got a word doc of the specs and a picture lying around somewhere, if you want me to email it to you then send me a PM with your email address.

They didn't have DVD players at Pak n save or new world.
I brought one from DSE yesterday $88!
It's exactly the same as the one I had 2-3 years ago but in a
different case.
plays everything (except realmedia & quicktime of course)
Wish they had updated the USB so it could play files encoded over 2mbps
can't complain tho'
