  its just that as i'm used to dealing with VCD format CD's and i know the
commodore billboard isn't  ~ hence curiosity as to what was going on .
( i used some of the adverts in my first comodore VCD's )

we got our DVD player after my aging mac gained VCD toasting capablity ~
then i took a tester into a big dept store then tried it out in various
machines! ~  and the panasonic was the best .
it'll play mp3's but not kodak picture CD's but that's not a great hassle
as it's easy to make VCD's.
also i've got a cheapo  VCD walkman ~ which comes in handy at times & i've
got quite a collection of VCD's .

i've got my 1701 set up as a monitor to use with the digital box ( ditto
front sockets )   ~
digibox : i've used a SCART plug with a set of phono sockets on top and a
long set of leads ~ so my wife can watch the ordinary broadcast stations
while i watch other channel.
yes ~ the 1701 does give a very good picture as a monitor .

i'm in midst of working out a 3rd commodore VCD ~   designed to be put in
to a DVD player  & watched on a TV   ~ a concept that seems to escaped a
few people .
