( 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 . ------- http://members.tripod.com/~petlibrary http://www.icpug.org.uk/national http://www.fortunecity.co.uk/skyscraper/perl/316 Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
