Have any of y'all tried re-encoding the same movie from DivX to WMV at a lower bitrate to achieve a smaller file size? How much did the quality go down?

Since the AV500/700 can play both, I was wondering how much quality is lost in the DivX-to-WMV conversion, or are there any utilities out there that can go directly from vob to wmv?

My understanding is that a WMV file with the same resolution, FPS and keyframe configuration is supposed to yeild a smaller file size than an equivelant DivX (so, same quality, smaller file) but I have not had a chance to try it yet (Windows Media Encoder crashed on the last machine I tried it on, so I'll have to try it on another).

Any thoughts?

Have any of you used the AV700's USB host port? Is it powered, or does the device plugged into to need to have its own power source? If it is powered, how big of a device can it power? I'm looking into getting a USB Bus Powered external HDD (probably one of the little Lacie or Iomega models) and wonder - if the AV700's USB Host Port is powered, if it has enough juice to power these. I'm going to be away from a PC for weeks at a time, and would like to be able to shuffle files between the AV700 and a USB HDD - due to the finite storage capacity of the AV700 (mine's a 40GB) and my infinite appetite for stuff...

Have have 2 different externallly (AC to DC adapter) powered HDD's that I'm going to test with the AV700, along with a couple of differrent USB keys (bus powered) to see what happens.
