  Apex Model AD 1201 plays DVDs, cd roms with MP3, JPEGS (lists the
folders and opens and plays them), Kodak picture disks, also.  Have its
two RCA cable connections (audio and video plugged into the front of the
1701 monitor) and control whether I am going to run the DVD player or C=64
from switch in back of 1701 monitor (front/back switch).
  1701 monitors give a superior playback for picture on DVD.
