I'm looking at buying a PVR for business use. I need something pocket-sized, with a built in speaker and the capability to play out to a TV if necessary. I'm looking at the Archos AV500 or the Creative Zen Vision, but I've read horror stories about problems in getting DVD-based video into these units. Is it that hard? How, specifically c=does it need to be done? (The DVD's I'm talking about moving into the PVR's are company-made presentations, very professional.) If there's another option besides that Archos or the Creative, I'd entertain that as well. Priorities are:
1. Usability
2. Performance
3. Shirt Pocket Size
4. Battery Life
5. Price

Any ideas out there???

Its only really hard if you dont know what you are doing and since your presentations wont have the DRM a DVD movie would have you wont have alot of bother, whatever suits you and will be compatible with what you are using although those specific pieces of hardware ive never seen reffered to as a PVR before but i suppose the term fits.
