Hm, I suppose I should log in to my amazon.co.uk account and see if I can find what version it is. I already own the disks... it's this set http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000SKNIWE/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00 which specifically says it's 50i ... but then one comment says it's 1080/24p which obviously is fine. (I imagine I could create 25p streams and then use a frame rate adjuster to slow that down to 24 if I really had to).
Also, no one has answered yay or nay on XviD / DivX via USB without DNLA. Anyone who's got a few minutes to test that for me would have my thanks.
Is there any point to the 590 over the 390 if I don't care one bit about 3D?
