DVD Changer advice

by bugklop / August 4, 2007 4:24 AM PDT

hello people,
I am looking for a good DVD changer with the latest technologies and I need some help.
something I want in the DVD changer: wide media type support, DTS, DivX, XviD, latest HDMI (1.3), 1080p upscaling, good sound/image. basically something like OPPO DV-981HD - DVD player but changer (5-6 DVDs or so). region free hack would be nice too.
anyone out there have some opinions? I'd greatly appreciate it.
thanks in advance,

I have an older Sony 5 disk DVD changer. Still don't know why I ever bought it. Never used it with more than one DVD in it. The only use I had for it was to put in 5 CDs for continuous music. Unless you can sit through 10 hours of movies without getting out of your chair, a good single disk player should serve you well.

Changer: NO!!!

Great value: OPPO!!!

Just say no to changer. Quality & reliability go downhill with a changer. DVD players in general are manufactured to a standard to last for around five years. Don't go crazy on any disk player.

yea, I thought about it. I probably don't really need a changer. most likely gonna settle with just a good single dvd player.
so, is OPPO the way to go?

however, if I was in your shoes, I'd wait for a quality Bluray player with excellent upscaling to drop to $300ish, or maybe slightly more. The Oppo 981 is what, $230? I would spend that little extra for veritable HD video and HD audio, just my 2 cents. Or, if you got $500 now, I heard the PS3 upscales pretty nicely... Just me man, just me.

Sorry that I cannot comment on the receiver for you. I think you are probably more aware of the different receivers than most of us here. Best of luck, Im sure you will find something that you love.

I might be able to afford to buy a blu ray player, what's the best one out now with the good solid features?
the thing is, I really want DivX/Xvid capability, do blu ray players even have that?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
