Dreambox 8000 / mediaplayer

Posted Mon 14 Dec 2009 08:58:40 PM CET in

I like my Dreambox 8000 a lot - But regarding the price its unacceptable that it wont play any DIVX/Xvid beyond PAL e.g. 720x576. So whenever you have half way acceptable resolution for your FullHD Display the Dreambox wont play it.

You can guess what my little 2 1/2 Year old thinks about the new TV / Receiver when there is no way to watch his Shaun the Sheep episodes ...

Nevertheless - i am now recoding to mpeg2 16:9 - The DM8000 will play at least that:
