Hi All,

Thinking about buying a 5800 next week - looks great
- the only feature that seems to be missing is the ability
to replay DivX/Xvid - I know that this is unlikely to be
added via a TAP - but does anyone know if TF are planning
any new models / upgrades that might support this?

Cheers,

Martin

Other formats aren't something that have cropped up in any conversations that I've had with Turbosat; that's the best I can say.

I think it's fairly unlikely - it's essentially a recording device for broadcast streams; it has a dedicated chipset that handles MPEG2. And I suspect that adding things like Xvid or DivX would be unlikely, since you'd still have to get the files in there, which is still going to be a tedious minority pasttime with USB.

Nigel.
