    Hello ad,
    I will have to replace my Philips DVP642 it is having problems.
    Anyhow, my question:
    I saw a Philips DVP 1013 at Target for about $35 USD, which is a really good deal for a DVD player.
    Will it have the same capabilities as the other Philips players.
    Does it play AVI files off a DVD, DIVX support?

    I haven't opened it, but I bought it at Target today for $25. Taking a chance it may just play divx. The box says "Simply plays it all." I have 90 days to return it.

    Check out this link from Philips. Says it plays divx, but this is a French manual. Looks to be the same unit, even down to the dvp1013/37 description on the side of the box.

    I guess I'll have to burn a disc and try it out.

    My mother has one. It does NOT play DivX! That manual is wrong; they probably got the wrong page from a different manual.

    Read the tech spec-

    Formats de compression: MPEG-1, MPEG-2

    That's VCD / DVD like I said.
