playing movies from my hard disk

Since my 2 year old daughter has manged to destroy most of her DVDs, I’ve been making copies of them, but I’m kinda sick of doing this on a regular basis so I’m looking into Hard Disk based players. (think of a video jukebox).

There are a couple of DVD player based ones. I bought the Inoi HV-670 and I REALLY wanted to work, but it was broken out of the box (it stopped playing after about 20 seconds). I called the support number and got an answering machine. After three messages and no reply, I’ve given up on this as an option.

So for now I’m looking into pure HD based ones. Here’s my list so far:

Portable Divx DVD Players

I’m looking to buy a small (7 or 8 inch) DVD player that will also play Divx files so I can put a few of my daughters movies on one DVD. Here are the models I”ve found so far:

update: I’ve deciced on the avayon dxp-7p. It’s multi voltage and in stock from a local store (B&H photo).
