If you’re like us, and we know you are, you’re tired of the HD DVD vs. Blu-ray pissing match that’s making it too confusing and frustrating to get your hands on high-def DVDs to watch on that fancy boobtube of yours. Dcube, a korean A/V company, has taken it upon itself to say “STFU” to both camps in favor of a byo solution.
Many people already (legally, we’re sure) use BitTorrent or other P2P networks to download movies and TV in high-def, generally using the fabulous DivX format. Its brand-new HD DivX DVD player takes merit of the popularity of the format with the brand-new M-vision combo DVD/solid disk set-top box. You can flame your own DivX HD DVDs or send them to the unit via its integrated WiFi or Ethernet.
It reads DivX, OGG, WMA and WMV and MP3 files as well, and offers 5.1-channel surround sound to boot. You also get USB 2.0 and composite and DVI out. That’s a lot of gear for a small box. We hope it finds its route to the US, but we’re not going to hold our breath, as we’d turn blue and pass out long before getting our hands on one.
