Nice, thanks for the input.
The main reason I want it is for DivX/XviD playback (I have tons of TV shows I’d love to watch but hate watching on my computer, even with the 3007 because I don’t have a remote for pausing/fastforwarding/volume/etc) and the ability to play SACDs. The fact it upconverts is just a bonus.
Plus, it’d be nice to take some strain off the A2…I’d hate for it to burn out, even with my 4-year service plan.
How are load times for DVDs as well as for DivX/XviD files on your 971?
