I am looking for a DVD recorder that would have all the features of Philips 5990 in terms of playback (it plays almost any format) including video playback from USB devices.
After searching, I found these two:
Some websites say that they can not play video from USB devices. Can anyone confirm this? I do not need to record from USB to DVD, I just want to be able to play avi videos.
Any other suggestions?
I'm almost positive the EA-38 (manual
) only plays JPEGs from the USB port.
At the risk of repeating myself, I will once more say that if you want a relly good player, and a recorder, get separate components. Very few recorders make great players. You will be happier with separate units.
A USB connection would be digital and the MPPA will not allow DVD copying via a digital output. Of course that hasn't stopped people from doing it internal drives on computers.
This DVD recorder has USB and SD card slots and does play .avi & divx files very nicely....
