I bought a CyberHome years ago, and it works flawlessly with all DivX / XviD. Additional firmware updates via internet etc. Bought it at Mediamarkt for only 60 euros I believe.

Philips DVP 5500S is pretty good and not expensive.

I'm not sure but I think it does play divx6 (99% of the movies I watch are xvid anyway LOL).
Try to google for it.
