Does Sony Blu-Ray BDP-BX2 play divx?

I've been checking on this particular model for a friend to find out if it will play divx. I've think this is a fairly new model, so I haven't been able to find any information on it. Was hoping someone in the forum might. Thanks in advance.

Hi!

Apparently, you haven't been searching too hard. Try the following Googlesearch:

BDP-BX2+spec

If you're not trying to be a smart-ass, then I apologize for my remarks. But apparently I did look using that google search criteria and wasn't able to find anything. That's why I came to the forum for more information. Now, if you don't have any pertinent information, then why reply implying that I don't know how to do a google search?

Because doing a google search for 'sony support BDP-BX2' (without quotes),
then typing divx in the top right corner search box on the offcial sony product support page ( http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/mod....pl?mdl=BDPBX2 )?

AFAIK (after little research), no Sony Bluray players currently support divx (with the exception PS3).
Some that definitely support it (> year old news) are some players from Panasonic, Philips and Denon. One LG player is DivX HD certified.

@mr.neef

Based on your response to my post, I gather you didn't even bother to do the Googlesearch I listed for you, namely:

BDP-BX2+spec

If you had done so, because of the inclusion of "+spec" (without the quotation marks),you'd have immediately seen pages of information about that model, INCLUDING SPECIFICATIONS.

(Since you're relatively new here, I'll ignore your totally uncalled for "cutesy" first sentence in your response to my first post to this thread)

Ok...maybe I should have said I did do google search using your criteria even before you suggested it. There was information on that particular model, but I didn't see anything that specifically dealt with that model and divx. Now...I will admit I didn't research this for days, but for about an hour or so. Again I will thank AnonCrow for pointing me in the right direction. I found what I was looking for.

Setarip...I'm not relatively new here. I've been getting information from doom9.org for quite some years and the site has been very helpful.

And thank you for ignoring my so-called "cutesy" remarks...I was scared you might come get me.

That's funny ;>} If you took 15 minutes or less to read "Specifications" at the first 10 listings that appear when you Googlesearch for BDP-BX2+spec (Including the SONY homepage for that item), you'd understand that it does not have DivX playback capability.

BX2 is the S360 with a different remote and included HDMI cable, which should help when searching for its capabilities

Then it's clear, no DivX. But it could read any HDTV SAT disk I've thrown in, including non standard resolutions (720p50, 1088i, REF=5 etc.) and parameters
