Budget dvd player with optical out?

Can anyone recommend me a dvd player in the <$100 range that has a digital optical audio out? I am having trouble searching for these.

Thanks.

You can only use the fiber optic one? Becuase if so than you are right hard to find. Any way you can use the coaxial one? Same thing.

Thanks.
The new JVC XV-NP10SL has both coax and optical, and plays Divx files. It's under $100.

The Pioneer DV-275-S has both outputs, available from ecost.com for $73 shipped. I've had very good luck with Pioneer players, but haven't used this particular one.

Thanks. I just discovered many of the jvc's have optical out. I need the optical out because of limitations of my receiver - only one of each coaxial and optical inputs, with my cable box taking up the coaxial.

The Onkyo DVD player I have -- can't remember the model number -- has an optical out, and it cost $100 when I bought it about a year ago or so. So maybe check out the Onkyos?

Philips 642 @ Amazon, <$65, free-shipping, and hackable for region-free viewing to boot.
