I also think the component output of V880 is a sub-par comparing to DVI
output. I had not test the component vs DVI in AVLP2.Maybe I can test
it in recent 2 days if time available.
When I first encountered the problem in playing DIVX HD,I think
whether it is a bug that can be fixed by firmware upgrade
just like the stuttering or lag occurring during playing WMVHD before upgrade.
In Divx's website,it suggested at least 2.4G,384 RaM,and 64MB VIDEO RAM
(same as the requirement for WMV9) to play DIVX HD film. So I think maybe my notebook is not powerful enough to play DIVX HD.
My notebook can play 720P WMVHD flawlessly
but when I check the item in AVEL LINK software to use the PC to decode
the film, I still got poor picture via ethernet to AVLP2.
Does this mean AVLP2 does something different when receiving the decoded film or file sent to it?
Someone told me that the player will down sacle the
film sent to it to 640x480 then upsale it again. If this is true,then
a powerful PC will not be helpful.
If I have a powerful PC,then I can test whether a powerful PC with
decoded film sent to AVLP2 via ethernet can have a similar picture
quality as the non-decoded file.
I am not familiar with the codecs things and do a little about transcoding
the video or audio.I only installed K-lite mega codec pack in my PC
and used HT MPEGENCODER Proauthor to do a few transcoding.
In the specification of the player listed the supported audio included:
MP3,MP2,OGG,WAV,AAC,WMA,M4A,ASF,and supported video
So.I don't known which combinations you listed would
be played by this player.At least,it is possible that your PC can do the
whole things and sent it to AVLP2 with possible degradation in picture quality.Or,you can teach me how to test and make those files you listed.
One of my friend sent me several mpg files recored in DVD-R which were
converted from 1080i TS stream.When I placed it in DVD-ROM and tried to
played it,I only got "Encrypted mpeg file" warning.I don't know how is
the mpg file converted by my friend.But,I used HDTVTOMPEG2 to convert the mpg file once more,the file now can play well in AVLP2.
But curiously,there were 2 mpg files larger than 4G can not be converted
by HDTVTOMPEGG2,and all I can do is use software to split the files to 2 small part,then it's ok to convert and play.
AVLP2 did not have internet radio,itune or navigation to internet.
V880 seemed to have above functions,I'm not sure.
Also,the Japanese model did not have English menus.There is a item
choosing for English but not for setup menus.Anyway,there are no prblems
to show the names of your file or directory in English.
