To answer your question regarding NTSC. The unit I have is a Region 1 unit, and according to the specs, it can play both NTSC and PAL. (Region 1 pal? did not know that the PAL format was available for Region 1)

Otto

Hi Jorel:

No, the numbers you have are not correct:
My cost was:
DVD player: US$ 63.00 (60 for the unit plus 3 dollars for sales tax)
Do not know how much FEDEX will charge for delivery, but the Post office told me that it will cost approximately 34 dollars to deliver the unit to Brazil. (Air mail, app 2 weeks delivery)
I believe that the 34 dollars already includes insurance for the unit, (70 dollars worth of insurance) so the total cost would be 63 + 34, or US$ 97.00 if you were to purchase it in Maryland, and then send it to Brazil.
If you buy directly from the site I gave you, you would not pay sales taxes, and they may let you know what the shipping costs are, if they deliver to Brazil.

Regards

Otto

Well:
Some of you may remember that I purchased a Cyberhome CH dvd 300 player on July 15. It has a 3 months warranty for parts and labor. Guess what? The unit stop functioning today, 13 days after the warranty was over. I called and they told me that they charge 40 dollars for labor, but by the time I send the unit to them, the repair/replacement will cost me around 48 dollars. To be fair with them, the CSR mentioned that perhaps they will not charge for labor, but I still have to pay for the shipment.
My tough luck..................

Hey Otto,

It's cheaper to dump the unit, and just buy a new one

Hmmm...
Why are you guys choosing the 300 and not the 500 or the mid model?
Seems their top end one is only 20 more bucks. Why not?

It supposedly plays Divx, 3/4/5 , Xvid, etc as well as all our formats.
Might be worth a look?

Wow!!This thing does anything.Tried out some Divx's I had encoded to kvcd(Pal as well) and played them fine.Only thing was that didn't look as good as it did on my Philips 623 but who cares they are only avi encoded to kvcd and watchable enough for when I'm laying in bed.LOL.Yes I bought this player for the bedroom.

I also have some kvcd's that are 352x480 encoded as mpeg-2,muxed as mpeg,burned as Svcd(even though I have to use vcdeasy to creat image files because even with nero configured Nero won't recognize it or is syas it is to long in Video/Audio).Well I popped one of the 352x480 Mpeg-2 kvcd's in it and it played it perfectly fine(came up as SVCD).What a great little player and was 1/3 of the price of my philips 623(considering I bought it 2 years agao).Glad this forum was here and glad I found it at wal-mart here up in the Grat White North.

Hahah! Is'nt that the truth!
Hiya KWAG..Long time no CQ... Been awhile, but I see your still putting out the best site on the Web..Congrats!

Was at the local Sam's club here in Chicago and noticed the Cyberhome 300 listing for $39.99. Pallots of them... Well I thought I'd hop over to your site and check out the compatibility, and it looks like it's a winner for your templates... Dependability might be an issue, but it looks like a win win situation at that price.

Oh!..and if you ever go public, save me some Preferred, por-favor...Thx!

Send a message via ICQ to incredible
No manufacturer in the world (if he arguments the profesional way) would paste a sticker "plays KVCD".

Because KVCD is not a "ready made" standard, as it will be developed more and more ... like open source

So someone does enter the gop length, other do modify their max bitrates others do have their unique speical settings on KVCD Templates.
And that could be a shot in the back by themselfes if giving a guarantee on KVCD as a whole. Cause OneCDEncodings do not just belong to templates they're like a workout/philosophy

Hello all:
I just saw the CyberHome 300 at Sams Club. They are selling it for 39.00 US dollars....What a bargain, even if it lasts 6 months

Regards

Otto

P.S.- I believe that the las time I was at Radio Shak, they were selling a CyberHome dvd recorder. I am not absolutely sure about this, I was in a hurry and did not take my time to check. I coul probably go to their site and learn about it..........
