Iam sending back my Toshiba SD-370E as on odd occasion it freezes for a fraction of a second and has lost sound twice in two weeks ive had it - this seems to happen mostly on DivX files....
Can anyone recommend a budget DivX HDMI 1080p upconverting DVD Player?
I was going to get the PHILIPS DVP5980 for £50 as my dad says it ranked no.2 in which magazines top 50
too me features arent important, what i want is:-
Excellent Upconversion of SD to HD
USB slot (optional)
unless anyone can convince me otherwise i think the DVP5980 is the one

Could it be that your Toshiba is just fine, and that there is a problem with the divx files? I have an Oppo, and even it will get confused by a badly corrupted file, although it usually ploughs through anything.
no, the DIvX files are fine have tested them on laptop, PC and other DivX DVD player - its just done it tonight on another DivX file - also when it does it the sound is out of sync for the rest of video by the amount of time it froze/skipped.... it actually done it 3 times tonight.
its doing to frequent now - nearly every divX file i play its doing it on... the SD370-E is starting to get a bad reputation for it now - over 60% of reviews i read say the same... look on Amazon
Have you checked the Toshiba site for the latest firmware? Try that before you return the player. Toshiba usually has a very good rep.I love children, girl children... about 16-40
For upconverting I bought a Toshiba HD-A3,it's an HD player but I will use it for upconverting SD DVD's. I paid $83.00 and works very well indeed. It's a well built qaulity player. Different models are being closed out at $100 or less.
