"Most likely there WILL be a manufacture somewhere in the next few years to produce a vorbis player"
I say:
i'm too impatient (altho i will be hoping to buy the neuros player next year as a portable vorbis player), i want want now :))

you might be able to get the company (or someone whith access to their propriatary code) to compile a firmware update to include the capability
I said:
2) not bothered how legal it is

Gut it.
I say:
I'm not capable enough to perform the task

Enjoy.  Oh, and expect the sound to be really bad unless you create a
Faraday cage within the box for a nice, quiet DAC.
I say: would a simple PC box with a DOS player not do the job? eg mess around with the boot options to automatically launch & play the DOS player so u dont have to have a monitor, keyboard, or mouse connected, just speakers to the soundcard (you can get these ridiculously tiny PCs now)

ansolutely nothing - looks like a case of the auto reciept feature

hack a DVD players' firmware:
I say: i had thought of that, but a) my dvd player wont read CD-Rs (so i'd have to buy a new one) b) i'm not capable enough.
good answer tho (nice questionable legality angle>:) )
