I have been having problem with my AIWA XD-DV370 playing my backups. Hesitations and pixelations. I know it wasn't the media because they were playing on other DVD players I have plus friends dvd players. Anyways, just picked up the CyberHome CH-DVD300 for $39.99 at BESTBUY. I told the kid there I was looking for a cheap player to play my backups. He pointed me to the one I have mentioned. He said this will play any type of media you throw at it. I was a little skeptical at first but what the hell. For $40 bucks and if he is lying I can always return it. So I got it. I just connected it and all my backups work fine on them. I specifically double checked the ones that would not play on my AIWA and those also work great. Some nice bonuses as well. You get a $10.00 mail in rebate bringing it down to $29.99 and plus you get which they did not advertise a $10.00 BESTBUY gift card at checkout. Not sure how long this last. You can use that for some DVD-r's or what ever you want. The only downside is there is no OPTICAL out for it but there is DIGITAL COAX and there is S-Video. If your looking for an inexpensive DVD player which will play all your media this it.
