They caused some property damage, but no injuries, but now, they have more reported cases of the same problem, so they’ve upped the recall to cover 4.2 million devices.

Pioneer DV-420V

DVD players don’t get too much love in the press today because they are pretty dull. The new Pioneer DV-420V, however, looks slightly more interesting than the average models being showed off at CES this year. It costs around $90.

The Pioneer DV-420V is notable as it sports a song encoding feature, letting users copy inserted audio CDs so the audio can be turned into MP3 files. These files are immediately transferred to an attached USB device. The same USB port can be used for playback of DivX Internet video and JPEG photos as well as multiple audio (WMA and AAC) and video (WMV) format files.

Toshiba XD-E500

Toshiba, sent packing earlier this year in its battle against Blu-ray, is back again with what one might consider a low-budget HD competitor. The technology is called XDE and the first product out with it is the Toshiba XD-E500, a DVD player priced around $150.

XDE, also known as “eXtended Detail Enhancement,” is reportedly DVD upconversion on steroids. Toshiba says of it that “in addition to providing upconversion from 480i/p up to 1080p, XDE offers user selectable picture enhancement modes that allow for greater detail, more vivid colors and stronger contrast that bring standard DVD quality closer to the HD experience.” Three selectable picture mode settings – sharp, color, contrast – lets one bring closer to “true HD quality” their DVD viewing experience.
