I went to the Sammy website and got nowhere looking for that info. Fortunately, I took a new Sammy e6500 to the beach with us and I have the manual. Let me look...found a list of file extensions and MKV and MP4 are supported, but also found this note: "Some MKV and MP4 format discs may not play, depending on their video resolution and frame rate".

Here's that list:

AVI
MKV
ASF
MP4
3GP
VRO
VOB
PS
TB

That's pretty much all the manual has to say about what you're concerned with. I will say the e6500 is a much better player than the three c5500s I have. The remote (which could be a bit larger) is much better than the remotes for the c5500s.

I have no idea what you meant, but one of my 3 c5500s died last week. It still plays disks but won't connect to the Internet.

Still have no problems with the e6500s. Don't see the prices falling on them either. I'm quite satisfied with my 2 e6500s. Pitiful web browser, but I didn't buy them for that.

I have no idea how I posted in this thread yesterday, since it has been dormant for months, but it was several gibberish characters, so I deleted them (though the post itself remains).

That's OK, it gave me a chance to post about the e6500s.

If you want to delete a post, just follow the deletion instructions that come up when you're in the post's Edit screen.

Were you imbibing when you did that?.... :lol:

In my house, the most common causes of true gibberish are dogs, cats (when we have them), or great grandkids! (when they visit.) :)

I usually catch them before a post happens, but... :)

No! :D

I have no idea. I hit the "UserCP" link near the top of the page, as I often do, to see activity on my subscribed threads, and was shocked to see myself listed as the most recent poster on a thread that hasn't even been on my screen for nearly five months. Even if my three-year-old somehow wandered to the basement where my computer was, found the dbstalk tab in Firefox, I have no idea how he could have done anything like that. (I was using a different computer elsewhere at the time.) :confused:
