Portable DVD player, or video player, or custom-built Frankendevice, with VERY high-quality audio output?? Video quality doesn't matter (could even be b/w), but screen should be 8"+ and unit should be as lightweight as possible.

Laptop = expensive/heavy/overkill.

Anyone know who makes good blank CDRs nowadays? Or if there's a brand that is DVD player friendly? [more inside]
I have a Hollywood Plus DVD-player card, PCI. It uses the EM8300 Mpeg 2 decoder. Are there any hacks or mods for this card to do cool things, or should I throw it away? [more inside]
