Hmm, sounds like I'm going to have to update mine when I get home from work. It will be really cool to just plug in a removable drive and play the movies on it.

Well i found this on the new update...

* DivX and VC-1 (WMV) have been added to the types of files that can be played. * (VC-1 2.0 audio track only)
* Blu-ray Disc Profile 1.1 is now supported. **
* [BD Data Utility] has been added. ***

*
- To play VC-1 (WMV) format files, you must go to Settings > [System Settings] and set [Enable WMA Playback].
- Copyright-protected files or files that were encoded by using DivX 3.11 cannot be played. - Files that are 2GB or more cannot be played.
** You may now be able to use several additional features such as playback of two videos at the same time with Profile 1.1-compatible Blu-ray Discs. The available features vary depending on the disc.
*** The management data that is used by the Blu-ray Disc is saved.

Wow, DivX, who gives a crap. The *real news* is the Profile 1.1 support. This is very important and I am suprised no one mentioned it.

Well, I gotta say the 360 divx playback is far more robust. It played back pretty much all my divx. The PS3 only 1/2 actually played.

Just use Nero Media Server and you can play all formats just fine.

Nero Media Server degrades the video quality BIG TIME with the PS3. I'm not a fan of this option.
