It was posted to one Finnish Hometheatre/DVD forum about a week ago. Some user had contacted the Kiss (a danish DVD-player manufacturer) who gave this information.

So basicly that player is just a compact HTPC with DVD-drive + remote control.

I sure most DivX files will look really bad on a large or even somewhat large TV set. But this is interesting news. Here some other recent DivX developments:

DivX on the Sharp Zauras PDA:

Why would Divx look bad on a tv? They looked fine with tvout a while back on a 32", and svcds (which are similar to divx) look great on our 36" tv.
